THE FILM OF THE DAY

If it is based on the novel “All You Need is Kill“from Hiroshi Sakurazaka, Edge of Tomorrow moves away from the literary genre to assimilate certain codes of the world of video games. Starting with its narrative structure of a time loop. “Live, die, start again”, literally the video game concept of Die & Retry. The hero (Tom Cruise) evolves alongside a legend (Emily Blunt) as in a co-op game, in action sequences sometimes filmed with a view over the shoulder, like a TPS ( Third Person Shooter). Key to its success, this playful approach to science fiction allows the blockbuster to stand out from all other productions of the genre. A success !
