“Intelligent and touching”: rated 4.1 out of 5, this is the best time loop movie ever!

Like Monday, which hit theaters on May 8, several officemates are stuck in a time loop. They will have to take a series of actions to try to break this loop and ensure that time flows normally again.

In light of the theatrical release of this gem from Japan, here are AlloCiné’s Top 3 Movies of the Time Cycle according to audience ratings.

Number 3: Source code

With a score of 3.8 out of 5 (20727 ratings on average), Source Code ranks 3rd in this rating. The 2011 feature film by Duncan Jones stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan and Vera Farmiga.

The story introduces Colter Stevens. The latter wakes up on a train bound for Chicago. Amnesiac, he doesn’t remember getting into it. To make matters worse, the passengers on the train are nice to him, even though he’s never seen them. Disoriented, he tries to understand what is happening, but the bomb explodes, killing everyone on board.

Colter then wakes up in a strange chamber and discovers that he is participating in an experimental process that allows him to implant himself in a human body and relive the last 8 minutes of his life. His mission is to constantly relive the minutes before the explosion in order to identify and arrest the perpetrators of the attack.

With each failure, the chances of returning to the past decrease. While he tries to prevent an explosion, his superiors tell him that a second attack is being prepared in the heart of Chicago and that it is no longer a matter of protecting a few train passengers, but the entire city. The race against time begins.

Number 2: The Edge of Tomorrow

Directed by Doug Liman, Edge of Tomorrow (2014) boasts 4 out of 5 stars (32,777 average ratings). The worn work of Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt takes us to the near future. Hordes of aliens fought a fierce battle against Earth and now seem invincible: no army in the world could defeat them.

Commander William Cage, who has never fought in his life, is sent on a suicide mission without the slightest explanation. He dies within minutes and finds himself trapped in a time loop, condemned to repeat the same battle over and over again and die indefinitely…

Number 1: A day without end

Clearly, with a rating of 4.1 out of 5 (31,757 average ratings), Un Jour sans fin remains first in the rankings, a great classic among classics. Directed by Harold Ramis in 1993, the film introduces Phil Connors, aka Bill Murray.

The latter is a TV journalist and is responsible for the weather. He goes to give his annual speech in the town of Punxsuttown, which is celebrating “Groundhog Day”.

Unable to return to Pittsburgh due to bad weather, he was forced to spend another night in this lost city. The next day, he wakes up very early, notices that everything is happening exactly as it was the day before, and realizes that he is condemned to live on the same day, February 2nd, indefinitely…

For AlloCiné viewers Reymi586, Un Jour sans fin is “An excellent film that is funny, intelligent and moving at the same time. The great Bill Murray gives us one of the best roles, as well as his on-screen accomplice. Andy McDowell.” If you want to watch it (again), it’s available on Netflix!
