Totally Enjoyable film

Tommorow when the War began was very entertaining, and way better than I expected when I went to the movies. I even found the story compelling enough to start reading the books (which is amazing considering I dont read fiction)... anyway a good watch, and I will get the blu ray/dvd and as for comparing it to Red Dawn... and I have never seen Red Dawn,...

Tommorrow - when a bad movie was remade from a stolen idea

I must echo some of the earlier, more informed, comments - this movie is a direct rip-off of Red Dawn (consequently those who chose to believe otherwise can check and see that Red Dawn also was made long before the supposed 'fantastic books' were written!! Another Rip-Off). Red Dawn was appallingly simple in plot - and TWTWB is even worse!! Is there even...

My review

Started watching the movie with the books in mind, but realised early on that if I compared it with the books I wouldn't enjoy the movie. So forgot the books, and loved the movie!

Still a great story

Some average dialogue and some amateur acting but its still a brilliant storyline and had me on edge for much of the film. Great effort for Aussie film and I hope it's enough for a sequel or 2.

Crap even if you didn't read them

I've read the book and seen the movie and have to say this movie would have bored me either way. It was like neighbours on the big screen as I can imagine a similar storyline appearing on neighbours having exhausted all other possible totally ridiculous storylines. Most of the acting and lines were cheesy and there was no character development so it didn't...

Why do people give 5 starts to a movie they haven't even seen?

There are some tense highlights and great technical work, including Ben Nott’s high class cinematography

But the film is about immediacy and action, and could almost be described as Summer Bay Goes Guerilla... It's a briskly related adventure, with a good-looking young cast, and Ellie is a forceful heroine who swiftly makes the transition from thinking about the holidays to blowing up bridges...

I didn't completely buy the initial war premise, which impacted on my overall enjoyment throughout, and I found some of the dialogue unnatural and unrealistic.

But as a film made for it's teenage fans, it mostly succeeds.

Parts of this film are worrying, other parts are clunky, but overall it's a little bit wonderful.
