The Tomorrow War Review - Analysis
The final match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup is interrupted by an army of ‘future’ soldiers who claim they are 30 years ahead of the current-day timeline. They seek the support of commoners in a bid to wage a war against alien creatures which could very well wipe the human race off the face of the planet and are on the verge of doing so.
The Tomorrow War is a futuristic alien invasion actioner with a complex plot. It deals with time travel, alien invasion, and a possible apocalypse. On top of it is a reasonably good sentimental subplot pertaining to the protagonist’s family.
An ex-military man joining the war against a rapidly growing army of toothy alien creatures is a tried and tested formula. Films like Independence Day and Extinction fall under this category. The story and set-up might look artificial but The Tomorrow War makes for a passable actioner.
The action part is visually engaging and it keeps the audiences invested. Chris Pratt, Yvonne Starhovski, JK Simmons, and Sam Richardson deliver very good performances. Cinematography and VFX are of top-tier quality. The visual presentation is one of the best in recent times.
However, The Tomorrow War doesn’t cater to all sections of the audience. The plot is a tad too futuristic and the narrative is sophisticated. Also, the film loses momentum in the middle portion. The ending is predictable and consequently, looks stretched out. The conflict point is way too cliched.
The Tomorrow War Review - Verdict
The Tomorrow War is a passable alien invasion actioner that makes for a one-time watch.
