A little bit about the plot
In this movie, humanity is eventually losing a war against a deadly alien species. So when Dan Forester, a biology teacher in the year 2022, fails to get a job at a prestigious research center, he looks for other ways of employment.
While the World Cup for football is being hosted in the same year, a group of travelers from 2051 comes with a warning. They warn the people that the world is about to face extinction at a very rapid rate. In 2048, a species named “Whitespikes” will emerge and then take over the planet.
As the years pass, the world population decreases to almost 500,000. The people sent in the future to save the present are sent through a temporal wormhole device known as the “The Tomorrow War.” Finally, there are hardly any people left for the world to live in. it is now up to Dan and Muri Forester and other people of the present race to save the future and prevent the war in the future from ever happening.
The Whitespikes as the deadly monsters!
Like many science fiction movies, this one also had a monster that would leave long-lasting imprints on any audience. Just recently, we got to witness something as frightening as the monsters from A Quiet Place. But now, it looks like we have something even more deadly when it comes to The Tomorrow War.
A set of aliens that are known as the Whitespikes have taken over Earth as their own. They breed in large numbers. The male group of Whitespikes is highly deadly until you meet the female ones. The female ones are the worst to face, and they are killers without any hesitation. In the future, it is seen how Dan, along with his adult daughter, Muri, tries to fight off these monsters. Eventually, Dan and Muri work on a toxin together, made from the Whitespikes’ blood. That toxin is supposed to kill any Whitespike possible, no matter how strong they are. And Muri is the one who makes this toxin and sends it back with Dan in the present time.
The emotional bond between Dan Forester and Muri Forester
The one thing that fans loved about this movie is that Dan Forester’s character met her daughter, Muri, as her future self. He is proud to see that her daughter has been working as a military scientist and is one of the most intelligent people alive. But when Muri gets to tell her dad the life she has been through, Muri breaks down emotionally, displaying how her life wasn’t how she expected it to be.
For Muri to see Dan in the flesh was a big deal since he died at a young age, and the tragic life that she had to deal with herself and her mom was not something she felt comfortable talking about. When Dan and Muri work on making the toxin and fight the Whitespikes together, that is when they bond for one last time. Dan realizes that she has revolutionized the present by making this toxin. She has eventually saved the people in her past.
Now it’s up to Dan, his dad, Charlie, and the others to stop the war from ever taking place in the future. All in all, the movie brings a lot to the table. The stunning visual effects and the never-ending action sequences give the film a great outlook. The best is the chemistry between the characters in the story. This is a movie about saving the human race from extinction and reconciliation. It talks about how second chances are tough to come by. And that is why this movie should be recommended for everyone to watch. It is an absolute hit. This year cannot get any better! Watch Chris Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski, J.K. Simmons, and the rest in the deadly action that is The Tomorrow War. Tomorrow War is now live on Amazon Prime. Watch now!
