Doug Liman 8767 s Edge of Tomorrow is out in theaters now and it 8767 s one of my favorite films of the year ( see Germain 8767 s review here ). But if you were like me and many other film critics, you might 8767 ve found that ending to be a wee bit lacking on a variety of fronts.
An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Vrataski take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy! Written by Warner Bros. Pictures
It feels like the filmmaker/studio just didn 8767 t want to end on a down note, but in doing so, they negate some of the formidable character work that has already been achieved.
An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly finds a kindred spirit in a government agent who is exposed to their biotechnology.
Screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie , who is expected to be heavily involved in the sequel, promises that we 8767 ll see the Edge of Tomorrow ending explained in the follow-up.
Okay, but even if you 8767 re willing to accept the fact that the Omega blood wants to mix with Cage 8767 s, thus giving him time powers again and jumping him back in time earlier than previous instances, why would the aliens still be dead in the final timeline? The whole point of the Omega time-reset is to allow the subject to prevent the events of the original timeline. If that 8767 s true, everything should be the same, except for Cage 8767 s memory of events.
"We were looking for something high tech, but in the style that the military would arrive at," said director Doug Liman. "The military is not trying to sell their product to anyone, so they have a much more utilitarian approach and attitude to design. That is how I wanted the armor to look, simplified and raw, not like something sleek."
“That is the only sequel that I’m considering doing, and it’s because first of all the story is so amazing—much better than the original film, and I loved and loved the original film—and second of all, it’s a sequel that’s a prequel.”

6) It makes no damn sense The film plays it kind of fast and loose with its time travel mechanics. Why does Cage go back further in time with the final time jump? There 8767 s a plausible explanation, in that since the Omega is killed before the beach battle, it would jump Cage back further back in time than we 8767 ve seen it happen before.
