'Tomorrow, When the War Began' Offers Meaningful Teen Bonding

Joss Whedon once claimed that he and his friends loved shows like Dawson’s Creek and Party of Five but that they really didn’t have enough rocket launchers or people kicking each other in the face – something that explains a lot of the unique pleasure of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Fans of Whedon’s style of action-heavy teen angst might also want to take a chance on the upcoming Aussie action spectacular, Tomorrow, When the War Began.

Based upon the book of the same name by John Marsden, a popular novel for teens and common set text in Australian schools, the film is the first of a planned trilogy of Australian-made action blockbusters. Already out in the Antipodes, it’s been garnering praise from fans of the novel and a generally positive critical reception, but in the UK we’ll have to wait until April 8th for our fix of meaningful teen bonding and hardcore ass-kicking.
