Even though this movie looks incredibly actioned packed and has one of my favorite actors in it (Tom Cruise), I will not be seeing this movie. After seeing the trailer it wasn’t a hesitation that I had no interest in this movie.
From what I gathered, Earth is invaded by aliens and a military resistance is formed. Tom Cruise seems to be an officer in the military with no training and just looks awful out on the field of combat. But, when he is killed he reverts back to a few days prior before the war began with full knowledge of the events to come. This lets him be able to train and ready himself over and over again until he becomes the ultimate killing machine.
The problem is there is no sense of danger in this movie. If Cruise can just keep coming back over and over again then there is no point to the movie. It’s like playing a videogame with unlimited lives. The enemy could just keep killing you and you can come back knowing where they are. There isn’t a sense of danger for the audience wondering if Cruise will make it to the end of the movie.
I wouldn’t recommend this movie at all based on how I feel about it. Just looks to be a thrown together plotline with a fantasy element that kills the entire allure of a battle.
