Important Themes from Edge of Tomorrow

by bxrtley

Edge of Tomorrow had many inspiring themes:

[Spoiler Alert]

Mastery. Practice, practice, practice.

Relationships. Despite the countless resets, Cage developed connections, which leveraged credibility and a necessary team.

Bureaucracy. Higher authority can be awfully ignorant and resistant to a subordinate with life-changing advice.

IDGAF Moment. The point when you’ve mastered the training and strategies, nothing seems to change and you must choose whether to keep trying or quit.

Irony. Of all the moments Cage loses his power, it’s from a car crash—not deadly aliens.

Vulnerability. During the final battle, Cage and Rita had no machinery—just kevlar and some grenades.
