Veteran Pixar director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) follows his live-action debut Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol with this sci-fi adventure based on the Disney theme park attraction. A scientifically-inclined teen (Britt Robertson) is granted a fleeting glimpse at an advanced creative wonderland by virtue of a mysteriously-acquired pin that allows her to travel between dimensions. With baddies in pursuit, she teams up with a former boy-genius inventor (George Clooney) to travel to Tomorrowland, make our world a better place, and save us from certain destruction.

Given that it is named after the most popular area of Disney's flagship theme park, I was steeling myself for a brand-enhancing exercise in corporate synergy when I sat down to watch Tomorrowland.... More
I should've had more faith in director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) – I don't think the word 'Disney' is ever even spoken out loud once during the movie. The whole affair is greatly informed by some very Disney-esque notions, but they are delivered on a deeply earnest platter that the film managed to earn in my eyes.
This strives to speak directly to the least cynical part of any child's mind, which is a valiant endeavour from any angle. The palpability of this motivation kept me on board when the plot got a little wobbly.
The tech on display is glossy gravy of the highest order – cinema hasn't been this well-served by gleeful retro-futurism since The Rocketeer. Amongst the innumerable visual delights are some super-cool robots whose design appears to be inspired by old-timey microphones.
Although the big, exciting ideas that carry the film hit something of a wall during the anti-climactic resolution (classic Lindelof!), it had generated enough goodwill in me by that point to see me through.
It may promise slightly more than it delivers, but there is more than enough genuine wonder in Tomorrowland to justify your attention. Unless you're a cynical jerk.Hide

The movie was bland, it had nothing in particular going for it, the main actor/actress were both good, though they made the actress' character a bit pathetic screaming and screeching about things, over the top.
Little to no humor.
The few action scenes were good which was the only shiny glimmer of hope, but drowned out by the slow boring part of the movie.
Overall, ok movie (as would be expected from a big budget movie) but I wouldn't watch it again.

'Jetsons’ tv series with 'Looper', 'Ironman', 'Meet the Robinson’s' and 'Never-ending Story’. It was fully worth watching big or small screen this is great watch for the family. If you truly get into it, you’ll come out after having a great time and feeling charged to do more with you life! :-) I thoroughly enjoyed this & can’t believe it didn’t do better in the box office.
Genre : adventure, apocalyptic, family, sci-fi.
5/5 : Totally a must see & get into it, great... More ‘feel good’ feeling afterwards. Some people will have trouble wrapping their head around this amazing film.Hide
