Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt splat invading aliens in this adrenaline-fuelled Groundhog v Independence Day hybrid sci-fi. No nice Godzillaesque monsters in this one - they’re ammoral and badass, just the way any decent, self-respecting monster should be :-)
Has been getting uniformly good reviews (88% on Rotten Tomatoes, 81% on IMDB), I’m a total sucker for this kind of subject matter, and probably the last film for me for a while, owing to the compulsory World Cup interlude...
I’ve chosen the earlier 2D screening so that we can go for food/drink nearby in the Marina afterwards. Meet from 5.30pm in Cineworld foyer, sharing Orange 241 codes there on a first-come first-served basis (I probably won’t get there til nearer 6 - bit of a commute...) - film programme itself starts at 6pm
