This is a big step up from Tom Cruise's last film, Oblivion. Tom Cruise is much more sympathetic and interesting in this role as Lt. Col. Bill Cage, a soldier who must learn to fight. Emily Blunt is very good as his mentor, helping to train him. Everyone involved does some of their best work and the performances raise the bar and remind us that science fiction rolls can be strong. Everyone is excellent including Bill Paxton in his roll as a no nonsense Sargent who's mission it is to make Bill's life hell. There is a certain amount of levity, perhaps too much to take the film very seriously. The film is thoroughly and consistently entertaining. An interesting premise and excellent cast work together to create an exciting and fun action film.
