During their trip, they see military aircraft fly overhead. What they don’t know is that their country is being invaded. Returning home, they discover that they are at war. With no training, they band together to fight the enemy.
Plot: Ellie Linton, a teen from an Australian coastal town, leads her friends on an excursion to a camp deep in the woods, dubbed “Hell.” Upon their return, the youths find that their town has been overrun by an enemy army, and their friends and family have been imprisoned. When the hostile invaders become alerted to their presence, Ellie and her friends band together to escape — and strike back against — this mysterious enemy.

Enjoyable but flawed
Based off the best selling Australian Teen novel of the same name Tomorrow When The War Began is the first in a series of books by John Marsden about a group of high school students who take a camping trip before school starts and return to find that the country has been invaded by an unknown force, and they make a stand to fight the enemy using guerilla tactics The cinematography and action in this film is fantastic, from the second the first gunshot is fired the adrenaline really picks up and boy does it deliver big time, the explosions in this film are great, and what makes them great is not their size but the debris and characters they send flying, I mean there were pieces of debris that missed characters by cm’s and it really ads extra dimension with close calls if this film had been shot in 3D it would have been incredible to see the film just for that.
Unfortunately what drags the film is its script, the dialogue is extremely corny and clichéd, and the bulk of the characters are blatant stereotypes and this is apparent with the way the characters are introduced, in fact I can go though each of them right now, Ellie – Farmer’s Daughter, Corrie – the lead’s best friend, Kevin – The coward, Homer – The rebellious bad boy, Fiona – the pampered city girl, Robyn – The upstanding religious girl, Chris – The stoner, and the biggest stereotype of them all Lee – The Asian, don’t believe me about the Asian? let me give you his character background: He’s an expert piano player, his parents own a Chinese restaurant, he moves swiftly like a ninja as evident when he’s climbing down a mountain, he stops a fast moving snake with a stick in one strike, he speaks one or two proverbs I mean I was half expecting him to bust out some Kung Fu with the way the filmmakers were treating his character thank god they didn’t go that far.
On the topic of the characters the one that really stood out for me performance wise was the character of Homer, Actor Deniz Akdeniz handles his character really well being as charismatic and witty and probably has the second most character development out of all the characters next to Ellie.
To be fair though this is the first in a series of books so there is defiantly room for improvement if the next movie comes out. Notice I said “if” not “when” that’s because being an Australian film it has to do really well domestically if it has even a chance of getting made, if it doesn’t do well bye bye The Dead of The Night (the next movie in the series) Overall the film is enjoyable despite the poor dialogue, it defiantly needs a better script writer for the next film, though leave him doing the action, Stuart Beattie did that well and pretty good for a directing debut.
Less stupid than e.g. Red Dawn 2012, but still…
Well, I can imagine its popularity in Australia (where the movie was made, nature and landscapes are splendid) and near-by countries and/or among the young who can identify themselves with their common coevals and dream of becoming heroes (or famous at least). On the other hand, the background and grounds are rather fabulous – I can hardly imagine a successful occupation of Australia by any Asian country (attempts – maybe, but no durable annexation). Moreover, it is hard to think that persons (esp. teens) with so different background and interests would participate in a joint picnic and would become real warriors in such a short time. Luckily, the cast is evenly strong, apart from Caitlin Stasey as Ellie Linton, the other are rather equally on screen, and partisan scenes are catchy to follow.
Anyway, Tomorrow, When the War Began can be recommended to teens, for the rest, it is okay entertainment as well, if you just follow the events without pondering about tangibility.
