The Tomorrow War

For all intentts and purposes is an all-out 1970's era disaster flick with a nifty helping of science fiction peppred with some familial drama thrown into the mix.

The all-new action opus "The Tomrrow War" hits the on demand Amazon Prime service as another top tiered flick that deserves your time and patience in that it is a lengthy tale (The running time is a little over 2 hrs.). 2hrs., 20 min. to be exact.

As with most science fiction entries of the past few years, one just needs to sit back and digest the shenanigans that occur in director Chris McKay''s "The Tomrrow War," a fun entry that captivates as fun eye candy throughout the lengthy running time. He is best known for helming "The LEGO Batman Movie" in 2017. So readers know, this is first foray into an action flick with actors as well as the high count for the visual effects.

I would reommend this if one is tired of flipping through their remote control since they've alleady watched Luc Besson's "The Fifth Element" (1997) or David Twohy's "The Chronicles of Riddick" (2004) too many times.

Chris Pratt ("Guardians of the Galaxy," "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom") is aces as high school biology teacher and former soldier Dan Forester.

Oscar winner J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") is solid as Pratt's father, James Forester. Also important to the story is Yvonne Strahovski, TV's "Chuck, (2007-2012), "The Predator"). She is Pratt's daughter Muri, an MIT graduate and high-ranking officer in the military.

The creatures in "The Tomorow War" are referred to as whitespikes. They have tendrils that shoot out poisonous darts a la the graboids from "Tremors," a Kevin Bacon-led westrern comedy from 1990.

The estimated budget on "The Tomorrow War" falls in the $200 mllion dollar range. The money is witnessed on the screen, with some in your face visuals that do not disappoint in the very least.

Like "Edge of Tomorrow," one feels exhausted and tired after watching the onslaught of visual that were cntantly being barraged with. So readers know, I've seen this a couple of times.

Grade: B+
