DVD RECOMMENDATION - EDGE OF TOMORROW

Looking for a DVD for the weekend? Check out...

EDGE OF TOMORROW

An officer finds himself caught in a time loop in a war with the alien race. His skills increase as he faces the same brutal combat scenarios, and his union with a Special Forces warrior gets him closer to defeating the enemy.

One of the most entertaining sci-fi action movies I've seen for a while. Match Tom Cruise with the right part, add in Emily Blunt, stir in a very clever time-bending premise, mix some great action with stunning 3D, and top off with some innovative alien creatures - and you end up with fast-paced, on the edge-of-the seat thrills, that makes nearly two hours go by in what seems like a few minutes. The special effects are top-notch. There's touches of humour here and there that relieve tension. The chemistry between Blunt and Cruise was good. The direction is excellent, particularly in the first 2/3 of the story where most of the time bending occurs. All in all, a high quality movie viewing experience. Highly recommended if you like sci-fi and action with an intelligent story...

****1/2
