Edge Of Tomorrow : Plot-Hole Explained

Our content has moved.
Redirecting .... Please wait... We will not get into the aspects of movie making or storytelling. In our books, that part was well done. It was not hard to understand the concept of the time reset or the construct of the creatures. 

The Basics

The basic concept is that the Omega is the main alien unit with multiple Alphas. The death of an Alpha causes the Omega to revert time back and anticipate the course of events. This way the alien life form never loses a battle. Poor humans don’t know this and they run into their imminent deaths.

The blood of the Alpha on Cage, gives him the power of reset too. So now every time he dies he resets back to the start of the previous day. Rita notices that Cage sees the future; she too had that power once so she asks Cage to go meet her when his day resets. The rest of the movie, the two of them plot on various strategies to get to the location of the omega which comes to Cage as a dream vision. 

Little do they know that the Omega simply has identified a human (Cage) with the ability to reset and buy giving the vision of a fake location to itself, the Omega can plan a trap for Cage to drain his blood which will remove his powers to reset time. This has already happened to Rita in the past and that is how she loses her power to reset. Cage escapes the trap by drowning himself and resets to the previous day.

Rita and Cage now choose an alternate strategy to find the real location of the Omega using a device. There is not much explanation to this device but helps locate the Omega based on the Alpha’s blood in Cage. 

Cutting it short to the end, Cage and Rita with the help of the squadron land up in Paris and plan an attack on the Omega. With their last breath, they succeed to kill the Omega. Cage is dying by bleeding out. But the Omega’s blood enters him and he now resets the time back by a day. This event of absorbing the alien blood happens at a time earlier than the previous time. Therefore the reset of time happens to an earlier point (on the chopper) instead of his usual reset point on the airfield. 

Hole in the plot

The death of the Omega is an event that is created by Cage. Since the Omega itself died, it could not reset time to prevent its own death. Cage can now be assumed to be the Omega (with no Alphas). So he can continue to have memories of the event of the Omega’s death – yet to occur. As far as the rest of the world goes, they should have only been shocked that the aliens are all dead, but shouldn’t know about an explosion in Paris. The explosion in Paris is yet to happen as far as the rest of the world is concerned. The news however reports of an explosion. This part makes little sense. 

A suitable ending would have been – the aliens are dead, but no one knows how and remains a mystery to the world (because the event has not yet happened, but the consequence is felt). Only Cage knows what happened thanks to the Omega’s blood in him.
