Narratively padded and visually overstuffed with CGI, The Tomorrow War plays out like Starship Troopers drained of Paul Verhoeven's subversive satire.

It does, in its cheap-and-cheerful way, have fun.

"The Tomorrow War" is the surprise of the season, a stuffed-to-the-gills battle between evil aliens and terrified humans.

Loved Chris Pratt and Yvonne Strahovski. Loved that the black people didn't die in the first 10 minutes. Loved the action.

The Tomorrow War is a movie that needed a surround sound, enormous screen experience - because its only value is in the spectacle.

But if I had a time machine, I'd punt myself to the past just before The Tomorrow War went into production, and save everyone the trouble.

I took one look at The Tomorrow War's dopey premise and knew I was all in.

What's depressing is that the director Chris McKay is a skilled satirist who, in previous outings... gleefully pilloried the very same tired and overdone genre conventions that he presents here as straight-faced storytelling.

It's not that sci-fi action movies need to seem realistic. But The Tomorrow War's view of human nature feels so jarringly out of touch, it's easy to get stuck in disbelief and hard to take anything else that happens all that seriously.

There are some entertaining moments and the movie might have played better on the big screen, but it's impossible to shake the feeling that you've seen it all before.

The Tomorrow War pretends it's taking the high ground right as it plummets off the cliff of reason.

It's the kind of sci-fi blockbuster where a sober military scientist (Yvonne Strahovski) yells, "Someone get a harpoon on that tentacle!" and the audience gasps, united in the hope that the weapon skewers its salivating target.

Watching Chris Pratt fight to save the future has a certain appeal, but in the here and now, he can't even save the movie.

It has been said that time travel movies are easy to do badly and difficult to do well. If that's the case, then The Tomorrow War falls into the former category.

[It] throws "Alien," "The Terminator" and "A Quiet Place" in a blender. And, like that gross kale smoothie you made once, the result is gray goop.
Jul 2, 2021
A blandly derivative and overlong sci-fi thriller.

This is a massive misfire that I unfortunately never connected with on an emotional level.

There's nothing 'tomorrow' about a recycled sci-fi jumble that places all its bets on yesterday.

Chris Pratt is no Tom Cruise. Without the wise-cracking and cheeky grins, he seems at a loss as to what to do with his face.

The Tomorrow War doesn't feel like one big epic, rather three movies mashed into one. So many promising ideas crammed into a single film that never gives any of them the room to breathe.
