Movie Review: Tom Cruise's 'Edge of Tomorrow.'

A Shoe-In for a Razzie Award
So, what do you get when you cross Groundhog Day, Transformers, Tom Cruise, a script that could have been written by a second grader, and an Ed Wood-esque directorial quality? Well, tragically, you get the military science fiction bomb, Edge of Tomorrow.

IMDB.com summarizes the film, "An officer (Cruise) finds himself caught in a time loop in a war with an alien race. His skills increase as he faces the same brutal combat scenarios, and his union with a Special Forces warrior (Blunt) gets him closer and closer to defeating the enemy."

I won't plan to spend too much time on this because the movie was so astoundingly bad, from beginning to end, vertically, horizontally, and in every other way; Tom Cruise was at his Tom Cruisian worst, the script was painfully dull, the special effects seemed to be based on ten year old technology, and not even the perky Emily Blunt, who portrays Cruise's character's Special Forces bad-ass-chick-love-interest, could save it.

Save your time and money. Skip this one again and again and again and again and . . .
