Well.  Why didn't Edge of Tomorrow look like this, again?

  Honestly, I like the look of the movie better. The movie's vehicles and armor are both more grounded in current designs. The critters look to have followed the visual inspiration fairly closely. That axe is cool but its not definitively better than presenting her using a sword. I'll grant that in general Hollywood actors are pussies about wearing proper helmets (which is why Karl Urban gets ONE MILLION geek points for his portrayal of Judge Dred, and Hugo Weaving delivered more emotion with a mask on than most actors can pull under any circumstances...). The lack of palm trees is mostly a relocating to Europe thing Smiley.

  On thing I liked about the movie aliens - they are terrible shots. Bad ass in melee but there twisty dual blast things? I think they actually hit their target maybe 3 times in the entire movie Wink. TO me that actually makes the aliens more interesting, rather than less.

True, true, though I'm not as big of a fan of the "bolt gun to arm" design that the movie went with.  What can I say?  I like the old rifleman stance.

And just watch, once the TALOS is shown proper, the movie will look completely dated.  Tongue

Seriously Morg, read the book.

The author's quite clear why The Full Metal Bitch (Rita) and Killer Cage (Keiji) use axes (pile drivers need an almost perfect angle and run out of ammo, Keiji learned from watching Rita whose original axe was a field expedient weapon made by Shasta) and the mimics look nothing like the descriptions of squat, bloated dead frogs.

Plus the ending completely ruins the story. It's like having the Titanic sail into New York City or Colonel Kurtz be a hippy guru.
