  1. Clever premise, with perfect logic until the last thirty seconds when the whole logic unravels so everyone ( except the aliens) can live happily ever after, there is no logic to the reset if all the aliens stay dead ! Spoiled the whole film for me.

    • Thank you for voicing that. I finally watched the film last night and felt exactly the same. It would’ve been a my better ending if they just left it at the explosion and then cut to news of aliens defeat IMHO. Great film otherwise!

    • The Omega’s life force travels back with the time reset and subsequently bleeds out at the beginning of the day, killing off all the mimics that rely on the ‘brain’ to sustain them

      • Prop, I’m not seeing how this perspective is supported by anything we learn in the movie. My perception is that the Omega never dies, but can move back in time to avoid making the same mistake twice against an adversary, and as such, carries with it all of the accumulated knowledge learned in “n” number of repeats until it achieves its goals.

        The Omega’s life force doesn’t seem to be bleeding out at any time in the movie except at the end, into a dying Major Tom Cruise who seems to have inherited all of its capabilities of time reset. The only difference is that when Cruise wakes up again in the helo at the end of the movie, he doesn’t seem to have a Mimic war to fight.

        • ….. or does he???

  2. Edge of Tomorrow; is an awesome film & Tom Cruise made this movie work! Because, he really owned the non-combate military officer, who became a true top notched US Soilder. But this film with the “Time Loop,” Is self explainatoric. Therefore, “Reset the Day,” is eventually what Major Cage did, & saved humanity too! But, also he used the “Reset” to go back to get his “Wife…”

  3. Edge of Tomorrow, is a film about turning back the hands of time to defeat an Alien invasion that has come to Earth to Conquer. Then humans use the source of Alien intelligence to prevail. Tom and & Emily Blunt are starriffic in this must see film!!! :-)

  4. How did Cage come “back” after an event that could not have happened yet; he lands in the helicopter and is greeted by the corporal who shows him to a live broadcast of the General talking about the energy surge in Paris that disabled the mimics. This surge did not happen until at least the next morning? Could Cage then not only reset time but also change the chronological order of historical events, apparently setting the effect before the cause?

    • Think about it, Major Cage arrived in London to see the General the morning before the next day mission on the beach. Therefore, while in the General’s office. Cage then took “Dr. Carter’s device from his office. Then, as the movie shows. Cage said he didn’t have it. But, he kept it. Remember, he was a still a super solider, even when the Omega blood got on him when he completed the on screen conclussion. But then for him to save Sgt. Rita Vrataski, & J Squad. He went & did it by his self. Then, Major Cage went to go see Sgt. Vrataski the day before he met her on the beach. Remember, “Attention” (an office salute). Then this time she said to him,,”yes, what is it (?)”. Then he smiled. But the end credit song came on, “I need to know now, know now can you love me again…” Rick Schuman-Now you know???

  5. If I grasp all other aspects of the “loop” ability, the only one that leaves me wondering is this. If Omega resets time when an Alpha dies, why then didn’t the Alpha killed by Cage create an Omega reset.

    • JustSayin, good question. But, Major Cage (Tom) didn’t kill the Alpha. The Alpha serverilly ingeared Major Cage only. Then Cage dropped the belt of Granade that floated & went inside the Omega. Plus, Cage showed the Alpha the Pins before the explosion, & as soon as it exploded. That Alpha died along with all others & the Mimics. Therefore, there was no reset. So, if you’re still wonderful(?). Look up My other post…

      • I think you meant “wondering” instead of “wonderful” unless you’re really just complimenting justsayin?? lol :-P

        • Yep!!! Wondering…Lol :-)

  6. Yep, I already saw it twice in two separate screenings. Skipped a screening for a movie I haven’t yet seen just so I can see this movie again, lol.
