(2021) (Chris Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Sci-Fi: A high school science teacher and other civilians are sent into the future to battle monsters that are close to wiping out all humans.
Dan Forester (CHRIS PRATT) is a military vet and current high school science teacher who's married to Emmy (BETTY GILPIN) with whom he has a nine-year-old daughter, Muri (RYAN KIERA ARMSTRONG). When he's passed over for a job he wanted, he thinks he must be meant for greater things but can't turn to his dad, James (J.K. SIMMONS), for advice, what with them being long estranged.
He gets the chance to step up when he, along with the rest of the world, is shocked to see military forces from the future, led by Lt. Hart (JASMINE MATHEWS), arrive in the present with a dire message. In the future, the world has been overrun by hard-to-kill monsters known as white spikes, and with the population now south of one million people, the future of humankind now rests in the hands of those in the present.
With a draft set up where everyday civilians are put into active duty for a seven-day stint in the future, Dan is finally called up and -- along with the likes of chatty Charlie (SAM RICHARDSON) and the far more solemn Dorian (EDWIN HODGE) who's now on his third tour -- Dan ends up in the year 2051 and immediately encounters and battles the huge monsters. He also ends up meeting a military scientist, Muri (YVONNE STRAHOVSKI), who's trying to come up with a biological weapon to use against them. With time running out for both of them, Dan does what he can to help and hopefully save the future for all humanity.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- They might if they're into sci-fi based, kill-the-monsters type films.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, language, and some suggestive references.
