by at . Comments

It may have seemed like an impossible mission, but Tom Cruise is the top gun once again.

What, exactly, are critics saying about Cruise and Emily Blunt's blockbuster? Find out below...

Edge of Tomorrow Movie Poster

The concept is sublime. The execution is brilliant… this thriller could very well be the biggest surprise of the summer. - Joel Amos

All in all, a perfectly superior example of industrially fortified Hollywood fun, and as good a guarantee as Doug Liman can offer that we haven't seen the last of him yet. - Geoff Pevere

The whole thing begins to feel like a giant-screen videogame - with the gamer getting a little further, a little deeper, with each new push of the Start button. - Steven Rea

It's a rousing spectacle, interspersed with touching moments of really hard trying. - Joe Morgenstern

Tom Cruise is the most committed movie star around and he's a major reason this original, big-budget picture works as well as it does. - Robert Levin

Finally, a summer movie. Edge of Tomorrow is an engaging and exciting sci-fi film that has a lot of fun with its premise. - Bill Clark

For all those that complain they don't make them like they used to, I recommend you get to the biggest screen you can find, buy copious amounts of popcorn, and enjoy this slice of summer movie-going fun. - Jason Gorber
