The Tomorrow War

The Tomorrow War ★★

There's a good story in here somewhere, but this movie isn't it. There's elements that might have made a captivating and interesting film, but the execution here just feels empty and soulless. Almost no effort is made to make you care about the characters.

I feel like the acting was pretty decent; everyone is trying their hardest to deliver poorly written lines with earnestness but it just doesn't work. The movie wants me to see moments as important because it says they are, not because I'm invested in the characters or the stakes.

This kind of movie is usually at least a fun ride (even if it's not a masterpiece), but with such bad execution there's no joy in watching it.
