What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Edge of Tomorrow is a thought-provoking sci-fi thriller that steers clear of some of the usual action-movie cliches -- mainly that women are damsels in distress in need of rescuing -- and presents both strong female and male lead characters (played by Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise). Expect a constant barrage of intense, chaotic combat as humans battle aliens: Soldiers are bombed, shot, obliterated by fallen debris, blown up by explosives, mangled by creepy aliens, and more. Not a lot of blood is seen, but many, many characters die -- including the main one, who dies over and over (most frequently via a gun to the head) as he learns how to defeat his enemies. There's also some swearing (including "s--t," "bitch," and one use of "f--k") and kissing.
