“A family man is drafted to fight in a future war where the fate of humanity relies on his ability to confront the past.

The Tomorrow War is going to get a crap ton of views to start but fizzle out fast. The movie itself is filled with action and some quick hit humor bits…but a horrendous story and cheesy AF dialogue take what could be a very good science fiction movie and drag it down to a non-rewatchable.

*Spoilers* How freaking obvious was it that Yvonne Strahovski’s character is the elder version of Dan Forester’s daughter? It was beyond obvious from the first trailer when it came out. Can we have a little bit of originality please? The same laziness goes for the father silliness. Throw in a scene at the beginning showing the fray in the relationship and then close it out happily in the end. Blehhhh.

The first half of The Tomorrow War is better than the second half. It’s the conclusion of that killed the movie. I don’t care if it was somewhat enjoyable with the action. You need to stick the landing. The Tomorrow War did not.

The final 30 minutes seems rushed and has the sole purpose and trying to create a franchise out of this one movie. Also it is ABSURD that a high school kid has all the volcanic knowledge to help Dan Forester (Chris Pratt).

This is where movies are subjective. The Tomorrow War is going to be very entertaining for many people, but it requires you to utterly shut your brain off. If you have a hard time doing that then go watch The Edge Of Tomorrow (2014).
