More Info
Overview
Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously demoted and then dropped into combat. Cage is killed within minutes, managing to take an alpha alien down with him. But he awakens back at the beginning of the same day and is forced to fight and die again... and again - as physical contact with the alien has thrown him into a time loop.

Fun and Intense Action Sci-Fi

First, before anything else, DO NOT watch this movie in 3D. The 3D sucks. In general I'm not a fan of 3D but it has gotten better and studios have been more subtle about it. In this case, the 3D was added in post-production instead of filming in 3D. It looks like a muddled mess.

Overall this movie is fodder for sci-fi buffs. The story is fun. The plot is clear and doesn't feel too contrived. The acting is great. Tom Cruise is a pleasure to watch as usual. While the plot isn't original on a level of say, Inception, it is still pretty good. Most of all, this movie is *fun* to watch. You're rooting for the heros and it keeps you engaged. This is not the kind of sci-fi movie that will make you think of your universe in a different way, but it is about as much fun as you could hope for in a sci-fi action movie.
