Goofs

Numerous examples of vehicles exploding when a bullet hits the fuel tank. Contrary to popular belief, liquid fuel is not explosive, it isn't even flammable. What explodes is vaporized fuel - and then, only if mixed with air in a precise ratio. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ellie Linton: We're not going to hold back. Recording it like this, it's um, it's so important to us. I guess it's our way of telling us that things matter. That we mean something. Maybe... some of the things we've done... The friends that we've lost, hopefully it all makes a difference somehow.
[regaining her composure]
Ellie Linton: There's only one way to do this. And that's to go back to where this all began.

didn't want to watch came out loving it
2 September 2010 | by hayleycrouchSee all my reviews

My boyfriend had been nagging me for weeks saying that we had to go watch "Tomorow when the war began" as soon as it came out, i really did not want to see this film, as i didn't think it would appeal to me and i thought it would be another "BOY" movie.

I went into the cinema with that thought and came out loving the movie, wanting to see it again! It was fantastic the actors in this movie where incredible, they felt so real and made you feel like you where involved with the story.

It did scare me, and i covered my eyes and jumped at a few scenes but i also had laughter and moments of happiness and sadness. The time flew past, when it got to the end i said "is that it, is it over already". it disappointed me that it ended how it did, but my boyfriend informed me that there is going to be more to the series where it will continue on, and i hope that he is right, because i cant wait to see more!!! 8 out 10 GOOD JOB
