Dumb Kids Continually, Even Unnecessarily, Put Themseleves In Harm's Way..Once The "War Began", & The Characters Make This Realisation, Why Not Head For The Hills Right Away?? Weakly Plotted Rubbish. No Real Character Development..I'd Say Stick To The Book, But I've Not Read It. Going On This I'm Not Going To Bother.

Its a combination of a "disney like bunch of teenagers" in a middle of a post apocalyptic war with cool effects but has very weak plot lines and weak scriptwriting. Well its not Attack the Block after all.

am I the only one that sees a blatant rip off from Red Dawn? even the red dawn remake did better than this movie.
full of stereotypical teenagers, horribly done army that is suppose to invade the town and just poor logic and decisions throughout the whole story.
The characters had no connection and it felt like a made for TV movie that was rated R for what? The fuck since the violence is nothing compared to normal television.
only thing it had was a budget that made the special effects believable.
I say skip

A much better Red Dawn remake than the Red Dawn remake no doubt. A bright young cast of Aussies liven up WW3.

There's nothing amazing about this adaptation, but its characters are likeable and the premise and execution have, for the most part, been well adapted from the source material.
June 23, 2014
While the adaptation is loyal to the novel, the script and characters wear thin after a while. Not to mention the endless cliches, scarcely believable story and many 'no way they could of escaped that' moments.

What's the worst that can happen?

A mixed group of eight Australian high school students go on an adventure on the other side of a huge ridge called Hell by the locals. When they return, their town appears to have been invaded by Asians. They band together to try and discover what is happening and survive the situation to ensure they are not captured also.

"You shall not pass!"

Stuart Bettie, director of I, Frankenstein delivers Tomorrow, When the War Began. The storyline for this picture is very straightforward but fun to watch unfold. The characters are pretty good, though frustrating at times, and the script was average. The acting was poor and the cast includes Caitlin Stasey, Rachel Hurd-Wood, Lincoln Lewis, Phoebe Tonkin, and Chris Pang.

"She wasn't much older than I was but she was just as scared."

We were scrolling through Netflix pictures and decided to give this one a shot. The characters were just okay and really lacked the depth to grab the audience. The script was just okay but the action scenes and drama were well presented. Overall, this is a very average picture that isn't a waste of time.

"Hell was the only place for us now."

Grade: C

Australian movie not as involved as Red Dawn but seeming the same premise. Some exciting scenes but not enough. It centered more on the drama of a group forced into a certain cituation.
February 8, 2014
Realistic and Well-Done really there's nothing much to complain about with a film that's as good as this and that is not only good but realistic in a sense that any teenager can feel what it would be like in the film.

Great film which isnt your atandard film fare but i loved it anyway
½ February 6, 2014
An Aussie remake of an American movie. Not the norm but it was ok. A low budget movie as usual.
