Review: I dug the premise of this move from the first time I saw a trailer. All up front, with Cruise in it, I wondered if it would live up to that. I figured Emily Blunt could save it, though. ;) It absolutely lived up to the promise of the premise. Things ran along in an interesting, and at time fun, way. Some of the twists maybe a bit predictable, but still really good. If I had been reading this as a book, I would have marked the end down for being too contrived—but in all honesty it was exactly what I wanted to happen and gives the viewers more resolution than another ending might have.
Sex – 1 (One soldier fights in the nude under his metal suit. Nothing can be seen except part of his bare behind.)
Language – 1+ (Blunt’s character is often referred to as the Full Metal B*; honestly don’t remember much other language)
Violence – 5 (It’s a military, sci-fi action. It’s basic war violence and at times graphic.)
Read this. If you liked the movie Edge of Tomorrow, you might like the book Erasing Time by C.J. Hill (Janette Rallison).
