User Review

Fantastic adaption…….congratulations!

Rating: 10/10

I've just finished watching the world premiere of "Tomorrow When the
War Began" in Sydney with my son. We've both read the complete
"Tomorrow" book series, which we loved – so we went expecting the movie
to not live up to the book because movies generally don't, do they?
Well, we were really pleasantly surprised as this movie is a wonderful

A great cast of "unknowns" become the characters we know and love. They
did a fabulous job of capturing the essence of the book with the right
balance of action, character development and teenage romance. It really
is a fantastic effort and I would be very surprised if this film
doesn't smash it at the box office.

We both wanted to sit there and watch it all over again!
