||Book “All You Need is Kill” Horoshi Sakurazaka
||The earth armies are at war with an alien race, who have the ability to reset time, on the European mainland, and Cage an army officer in the PR department is accidentally recruited. In his first battle he also gains the ability to reset time, and with Rita a supertough soldier they gradually learn how to overcome the enemy.
||Lots of explosions and battles with future firearms, but in general not too graphic for those with weak stomachs (including me). No nudity, little swearing.
||If you are a fan of tough females then watch this. Emily Blunt is great as Rita Veratski (I may be becoming a fan) and Tom Cruise is as competent as usual. Some fun moments – watch for them escaping, driving an old BMC car towing a caravan.
