When their country is invaded and their families are taken, eight unlikely high school teenagers band together to fight.
A very appealing, fast paced, action packed, but not over the top, with an extremely likable and good-looking cast, the suspense and story were great!
This is the beginning, of a potential series and I really hope that they continue in that direction, because they have me hooked, grinning from ear to ear, as this is finally a teen targeted series that I can stand for and why this film isn't getting much attention, is beyond me, as this deserved a wide theatrical release. The Hunger Games better bring it hard!
The film starts out like a mash up, of early John Hughes movies, early Steven Spielberg, like The Goonies, that collides with Red Dawn, but brings its own hip flare to the plate. The filming was glossy and skilled, with some beautiful scenery and grim and exciting action, that doesn't skip a beat.
All of the performances impressed me, especially from the mesmerizing and sexy lead Caitlin Stasey, who carries the film very well and should be in more movies. I think the rest of the young cast of unknowns, supported her very well and all had their moments to shine, you might be familiar now with the stunning beauty, Phoebe Tonkin, from CW's The Secret Circle, who makes me drool like a dog, every time I see her and also Rachel Hurd-Wood, from the disappointing, but still decent, An American Haunting, solid cast here!
The soundtrack wasn't half bad either and flows perfectly with the film's vibe and to the very end, Tomorrow, When The War Began will have you engaged with it throughout and I hope this is just the start, of better things to come. Bring on the next installment!
Overall, this film deserves a fan base and could very well be the next big thing for film adaptation, in quite some time and to me has just about the whole package and I urge you to seek it out ASAP! Recommended! 7.5 out of 10
