It’s Groundhog Day meets a sci-fi D-Day in this flick, in which a soldier (Tom Cruise) relives the same day — a day in which the Earth loses a major battle against hordes of invading aliens — again and again until he develops the skills necessary to change the outcome. Don’t think too heavily about the details of the plot — just enjoy the ride. Director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) handles action well, but the effects, particularly the aliens, seem overcooked. Cruise handles the gravity and levity, and a tough-as-nails Emily Blunt proves her action-movie mettle. It’s hard to frown on an original sci-fi concept during a summer full of superheroes and adaptations, but with flaws in the first and third acts, Edge of Tomorrow simply doesn’t quite succeed.  Rated PG-13. 113 minutes. Screens in 3-D and 2-D at Regal Stadium 14, Santa Fe. Screens in 2-D only at DreamCatcher, Española.
