Quick Verdict – I kept looking for Bill Murray, but turns out it’s not Groundhog Day 2
So Tom Cruise does War, Science Fiction, Action and Time Travel all in one film. Is there anything this man can’t do? Turns out, no.
I watched this off the back of seeing Oblivion. Thought I’d have a Tom marathon. If I’m honest, expectations were low. Oblivion didn’t wow me and I couldn’t see this one being much better.
Well Tom is a military officer helping the war efforts against these wierd looking aliens without getting his hands dirty. When a string of events lead him to the frontline, he finds himself reliving the same day over and over. He teams up with Emily Blunt, a war hero, to try and thwart the enemy once and for all. After all, if it all goes to shit, Tom only has to die to reset the day. Have another go mate.
My worry with films like this is the bore of the repetitiveness. Thankfully this is nowhere to be found. It flows with great speed, keeps you entertained throughout and delivers a wonderful, rewatchable action flick.
