New York Times‘ The Tomorrow War Review
By Jeannette Catsoulis
- It is never good news when a phalanx of armed, balaclava-wearing dudes falls from the sky in the middle of a World Cup soccer game
- Sucking ideas from across the sci-fi spectrum — Alien, Edge of Tomorrow, Starship Troopers, Jumper… Zach Dean’s screenplay grows more ludicrous by the minute.
- This 140-minute assault feels, with its crude dialogue, overexcited score and characters so formulaic they might as well be cereal-box figurines.
Los Angeles Times‘ The Tomorrow War Review
by Robert Daniels
- It’s reminiscent of the anti-fascist Starship Troopers, the father-daughter centered Interstellar, and the punch-the-air alien conflict driving Independence Day. But the film lacks a lead as charismatic as Matthew McConaughey or Will Smith to carry the day
- Ever since A Quiet Place graced the screen, sonically monsters have begun to sound the same
- This post-apocalyptic combat flick lacks the intensity to reach the 1.21 gigawatts worth of power needed to emblazon our screens in escapist flair
The Guardian‘s The Tomorrow War Review
by Peter Bradshaw
- In Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, Pratt had at least some residue of his former comedy existence, and to be fair there are one or two funny lines here… but this is a very earnest and generic lead performance
- There is the charismatic female commanding officer, played by Yvonne Strahovski (from The Handmaid’s Tale)
- It all feels like a heavy meal, and the action scenes and the creature effects are very derivative
Hollywood Reporter‘s The Tomorrow War Review
by John Defore
- Viewers will have their own ideas and questions about how a time machine might be used in an apocalypse such as this. [Scriptwriter Zach] Dean answers just enough of them — in no-nonsense “this is how it is” fashion — that we can enjoy the version of wormhole warfare he’s chosen to deliver
- Creature designer Ken Barthelmey earned his pay, making beasts worth running from
- The thrill ride reaches what seems a natural end point… But Dean keeps things going, adding a long and daring mission that… is only the tiniest bit plausible
Entertainment Weekly‘s The Tomorrow War Review
by Leah Greenblatt
- Chris Pratt fights for the future in enjoyably absurd action flick
- Director Chris McKay (Robot Chicken, The Lego Batman Movie) has anchored his career in absurdist comedy, and the movie is best when it lets its weirdo flag fly
- Eventually the storyline dissolves into soft-focus sentiment and a final, snowy set piece whose execution is so patently ludicrous a 1970s Bond villain might file for intellectual property rights!
