Thoughts on Age of Tomorrow
Age of Tomorrow is an action sci-fi thriller from Asylum, the low budget production company. That introduction will help show what we talk about next. Starting off wanting to be more like Armageddon, it takes the turn into Independence Day.
Following a couple of different groups of people. We get to dive into each of them, ones by one. As they start getting rolled further along, seeing the supporting characters picked off. Unlike many of the lower budget movies we see from them. We do seem to get one of the better ones here. One that feels like it has peril involved in every part of it.
This won’t go down as one of the greatest of all time, but it will entertain for the time given. Constantly wanting to keep us guessing along the way, not holding back on anything either. Creating one of the most terrifying alien creatures in recent years.
What the movie here.
Final Thoughts – Age of Tomorrow is one of the better Asylum movies, with perils around every corner.
