That remark might not make sense right now, but it will after you’ve seen “Edge of Tomorrow,” so don’t worry about it. The film is based on Hiroshi Sikurazaka’s novel “All You Need Is Kill,” which is set in the aftermath of an extraterrestrial invasion and is extremely intellectual. It may be more accurate to refer to this as an “extra-dimensional invasion.
” An entity that appears to be able to peer across time or rupture it somehow controls the vicious, octopod-looking Mimics in a hive-mind manner.
While we don’t know exactly how our brave heroes will discover the enemy has supernatural abilities when the story begins, we do have a strong suspicion that it can see the future through the eyes of specific humans and then treat them like video game characters, tracking their progress through the horrible “adventure” of war and noting their tactical maneuvers, all in the hopes of ensuring our collective extinction.
As a public relations officer in the Army, Tom Cruise plays Major William Cage (Cruise). In the position of the heroic character, Cage is a surprising choice. Unknown to him, he has been thrust into the thick of a battle that will decide the destiny of the war, despite never having been involved in warfare before. The film begin
s with Cage waking up in the cargo hold of a transport helicopter on his way to London’s European command headquarters. Even if the rest of the film isn’t his fantasy, there are moments when it feels like it is. The globe is in the grip of conflict. Countless numbers of people have perished. Cities have been reduced to nothing more than cinder blocks. Much of the action in this film is reminiscent of color newsreel footage from World War II.
When Cage meets the general who is in charge of that area of the world’s military, the general tells Cage that he will be put right into this movie’s version of D-Day and that he is to report for service as soon as possible.
This is one of those science fiction movies in which soldiers wear clunky bionic suits festooned with machine guns and other weapons, and soon after Cage has joined his unit and learned the rudiments of wearing combat armor (this is one of those science fiction movies), he is killed on the battlefield. No amount of protest by Cage can stop this assignment.
After that, he wakes up and has to begin again from the beginning. After then, he experiences another death and begins the cycle once more. He is always aware that he has been here before, that he has interacted with this person, said that thing, done that thing, made a poor decision, and ultimately perished.
On the other hand, no one else does it. They are unaware of the fact that Cage, like the protagonist Billy Pilgrim in “Slaughterhouse-Five,” has been unmoored from the flow of time.

Plot of the Edge of Tomorrow
The Mimics, a race of extraterrestrials, conquered the continent of Europe in 2015. It has been five years after Verdun, but United Defense Forces have only scored one win, but they have managed to keep off Mimics in the English Channel. UDF chief General Brigham assigns the next day’s huge assault on France to Major William Cage, a British public affairs officer with no combat experience.
If the landing fails, Cage will blame Brigham, and he does not like that. Cage is tasered when he tries to flee, and Brigham orders his detention. He wakes up at Heathrow Airport in handcuffs. He has been reduced to the rank of private, has been classified as a deserter, and has been sent to Master Sergeant Farell’s J Squad.
There is a sting in the tail of the invading force. An unusually enormous Mimic is killed by Cage using explosives, which leaves him coated in its own blood. When he comes to, he finds himself back at Heathrow, where he had been the day before. His claim that the invasion is doomed has no traction.
Cage keeps dying on the beach and waking up at Heathrow, and in this way, improves his combat skills and his ability to anticipate what will happen. Rita Vrataski (the “Angel of Verdun”), a legendary sergeant, appears in one loop during the invasion. She advises him to find her the next time he “wakes up” because she knows the Mimic’s actions in advance and they both die in an explosion.
Cage is freed by Vrataski. Before the invasion begins, they enlist the aid of J Squad to assist them in destrto oy the Omega. To get into the Louvre, the other troops give up their lives so that Cage and Vrataski can. Vrataski kisses Cage just before enticing away an Alpha that stands between them and the submerged Omega. A belt of grenades dropped by Cage kills the Omega, while Vrataski is killed and Cage is mortally wounded.
Cage’s body glides down into Omega’s blood as he dies. He wakes up on his way to see Brigham for the first time. Brigham declares on television that Mimic activity has been halted following an unexplained energy surge that occurred in Paris. To track down Vrataski, Cage heads to Heathrow. She greets him with the same rudeness he has come to expect from her in prior loops.
