Edge of Tomorrow

Edge of Tomorrow ★★★½

Far, far better than the marketing would lead you to believe, Edge of Tomorrow suffered at the cinema due to woeful trailers and TC fatigue. But the film itself is a treat, despite boiling down to a cross between Groundhog Day and Aliens (and it knows it, with the very aware casting of the great Bill Paxton, among other nods throughout). Anyone with a bugbear over temporal paradoxes will have something to argue about when the credits roll, but for me that doesn't mar what's a jolly well done, thrilling sci-fi action bonanza. Even with Tom Cruise in it.
