At the end when Cage wakes up on the helicopter it appears the power surge has already happened and does not tie in to the exact moment he became conscious. If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and visit the theater this weekend and give its numbers a boost. 10:00PM (DAY 1) – Cage and Rita convince J-Squad to help them 2:00PM (Day 1) – Cage and Rita meet with the General and get the device that Cage shoves into his leg The only happier ending would have been if Cage and Rita could have earned any credit for their efforts. It was a hit with critics and garnered passionate reactions from its fans. Our timeline may be a little off (hour wise) but overall the two correspond exactly the way they should.

When they were filming that expository sequence, Liman complained he didn’t need that degree of exposition to make his spy thriller, so McQuarrie asked, “Doug, how many time-traveling aliens were there in The Bourne Identity?”. Think about it like an ongoing computer backup. That’s also why you see rita in the training area as well at the end. But crowd-pleasing commerce isn’t why the film ended the way that it did. This angers Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account. From the sound of it, the concept of the book was just fantastic, and the movie -- the third adaptation of this book, it's worth noting -- went with a more traditional story that, while fine, paled by comparison, pushing for a more hopeful, less twisty ending. We spoke with screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who explained the original script for Edge of Tomorrow was tonally much darker. Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow is easily one of the most beloved films recent memory. I know the ending was somewhat controversial, with some people who didn’t like it, but I think the only way to make those people happy would to end the movie in a way that wasn’t happy. Then he’s free to walk around, having retained his rank and is able to see Rita again. The thought of Cage emerging from his never-ending day victoriously while Rita remained a casualty might have worked as a bittersweet but ultimately more satisfying conclusion to an extremely entertaining movie. When an Alpha/Omega is killed and their blood is transferred to a human that Alpha/Omega ceases to exist because the human takes that beings place. Edge of Tomorrow ends with Rita (Emily Blunt) and Cage (Tom Cruise) diving head first toward their own deaths as they attempt to destroy the "Omega," which is the being that's at the center of everything, particularly as it relates to resetting the day. The problem is a downer ending isn’t exactly everyone’s idea of a good time. I Am Legend was just one of those situations where knowing how the story could have gone had a noticeable effect on how I viewed the adaptation. Otherwise it wouldn’t be comprehensible that the general reports of the Omega’s death just before sunrise on day 1. couldn’t get this one thought : Edge of Tomorrow (marketed as Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow on home media, or simply Live Die Repeat) is a 2014 American science fiction action film starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Explaining the ending of Edge of Tomorrow - We saw a lot of conversation/questions related to the timeline for the movie and why Cage woke up at the helicopter. Not until Edge of Tomorrow opened in theaters last month did the ending become a huge topic of discussion, at least on the Internet. When the plane lands at the end we don’t see him meeting the general again but I’m assuming he will after the press conference and the general still wants him to be in the invasion (more on that below), which he doesn’t say no to this time b/c he knows the mimcs are destroyed. There are many other ideas out there, and I disagree with all of them. As McQuarrie reminds us, comedies generally have to go back to the way things were, and that’s exactly what Edge of Tomorrow did. We cut to the plane and hear the same speech all over again. The Omega, or at least its blood/elements within it’s blood exists in a state of quantum shift. So the first time it was to Heathrow and the second to the helicopter. Some fun moments, some suspenseful ones, I liked post-apocalyptic New York City and Will Smith's performance. Also, Rita has already had her loop back, this doesn’t erase that timeline, so she would be easy to convince of this happening. Many famous critics have claimed the ending of "Edge of Tomorrow" as illogical and dis satisfactory. They have one chance to kill the Omega, and they will most certainly die trying. In the case of Edge of Tomorrow, it happened to be a decision that simply felt right to the people telling the story. He thinks they're swell. Further evidence of the reset point being before he’s awaken is when he has the vision, clearly after dying but before he is “awaken” by the sergeant. This helps setup where he should be when the last reset happens at the end. That and also the army may not have had any way of knowing for sure what the situation was until they got out on the field and so were preparing for battle anyway. It appears to transmit this ability through the blood of the Alphas, whose deaths trigger the reset. First Cage looses the blood so the loop is gone, he no longer will awaken on the duffel bags as he previously does. The reset ability obviously functions like an immune system response, automatically. They will have not evidence for sure until they get boots on the ground. Some people found the ending of Jack Reacher problematic, unsure whether James Barr’s emotional response meant to imply his already disproven guilt. Same for J-Squad. Before understanding the ending of the sci-fi classic i.e. ( Log Out /  That actually makes a lot of sense to me – thanks so much for sharing! They still have to go in and secure their front and advance across Europe because they can’t say for sure if the mimics are all dead. Enjoyed reading through this, very good stuff, thankyou . I’ve heard people saying ridiculousness about them existing in different times or something. ps nice web site. ( Log Out /  McQuarrie argued for another element that, unlike returning to Cage sleeping on the helicopter, didn’t make the final cut: a pretty bonkers sounding turn of events in the third act. My final thoughts: Which they probably were, they have no reason to believe there aren’t any more mimics yet. He didn’t jump back either 24 hours or to the previous checkpoint. The movie is so different, fresh and original that, to some people, ending on a familiar/happy note doesn’t gel with its riskier choices. It allows the movie to stand a bit more on its own. 3rd the reset point occurs some time after he’s been tasered but still unconscious. #2. Who knows? Would it have been more badass if Major Bill Cage (Tom Cruise) had died in order to save the world? Also notice that 9:05AM is while he is unconscious due to being tased, and rather than the movie showing us Cage sleeping for 55 minutes they just skip to where he is awoken by being kicked and called a maggot. Let’s say the ability stretches to a length of time roughly equaling 48 hours. I don’t believe the Omega has any specific control over time other than allowing it to start again at the preselected backup – 24 hours prior to the initial incident. At the very least, I don't think it would have hurt the film, but more than half of our poll voters may disagree with me there. Only one of them can escape either way. If something goes wrong, you can restore your computer to any point along the way, all the way back to whenever the furthest active backup exists. As the Omega ceased to exist, in all times, the tachyon particles snapped back to their last starting state – the earliest point at which they stopped existing, pulling the consciousness of their new host with them. Please note that exact times are not mentioned in the movie, so I will be giving the times listed: 7:00AM (Day 1) – Cage wakes up in the helicopter on the way to meet the General 3rd, you see J squard training as they normally would, regardless of if they were going to invade or not. This is why the Alpha that Cage killed never returns to the battlefield, AND why the Omega never returns…But I’ll get to that later. The book is always better than the movie. (Obviously, or Cage would jump earlier back in time each time he was killed before the end of the day). Writer Christopher McQuarrie promises that Edge of Tomorrow 2 will answer questions left lingering at the end of the first movie. #1. And it's the ending we want to talk about here, mainly as it compares to All You Need Is Kill. It's drastically different from Edge of Tomorrow in both respects, as the film's version allows Rita to keep her life but takes away Cage's glory.
