...despite the R-rating, this isn't really a movie for grown-ups, Tomorrow When the War Began can't be completely dismissed as a teen movie either. It's a curious thing, with sleek, fluid action set pieces and moments that approach - then bungle - grace.

Suffers from some technical and acting issues, but the piece is so exciting and engaging overall you'll undoubtedly be hoping for a sequel when the credits roll.

Despite the far-fetched set-up (and the often clunky dialogue and acting), you'll soon be rooting for the plucky teens.
