Didn’t even finish this one. First of all, I’m not a Tom Cruise fan. At all. My mom is. But I’ve never been a big fan of him. He’s too close to Christian Bale but he isn’t. That said and done, I’ve only ever really liked his movies from before 2003. The newer stuff seems to be… it doesn’t matter. My mom said that he’s getting old. I agree. There’s just certain movies you shouldn’t do anymore after you become a certain age. It doesn’t look right. But then again, if it makes money, no one really cares. Which is why Purge 2 was produced. (Although Purge 1 was a horrible tragedy and disgrace to horror movies, it made 3-4 times as much as it cost to produce. So they made a 2nd one. Grand idea! Now we can all suffer through another one.)
This movie was an interesting take on “groundhog day”. I am kind of curious to see the end but not enough to sit through the whole movie. I’ll probably just get a ticket and pop in for the last 10 minutes. With all the machines and weird creatures, it was a mix of Pacific Rim and every other movie that dealt with going back in time to save the future (X-Men anyone?). It was drawn out, lame, and repetitive. Sure, I know he’s supposed to be repeating the same day but come on! Anyways, as you can see, I didn’t much like it.
But it’s your choice. Don’t spend the extra to see it in IMAX.
