    Bird layers on plenty of dazzle... But his heart is what keeps the story motoring and the ending is perfectly engineered, including a coda that encourages all of us to try harder.

    Bird and Lindelof have thrown everything they have at this film and, aside from a pause for breath at the end, they’ve made something funny, surprising and packed full of wonder.

    Tomorrowland is a crazy, disjointed mess. But it’s the good sort of crazy, and it’s the sort of mess you want to lose yourself in.

    Brad Bird's Tomorrowland, a noble failure about trying to succeed, is written and directed with such open-hearted optimism that you cheer it on even as it stumbles.

    Tentpoles are rarely guilty of overreaching, but Tomorrowland has a tendency to feel out of control, a film that is finally more ambitious than accomplished.

    Tomorrowland is designed, just like its theme park namesake, to celebrate optimism.

    Disney’s gimmick of naming movies for its theme-park attractions crashes and burns in Tomorrowland, a here-and-now caper that will confuse children, bore adults and offend anyone who’s ever taken a science class.

    MASTERPIECE. Although it may be way ahead of it's time, Brad Bird's Tomorrowland a masterpiece and a Disney movie that Walt would be proud of,MASTERPIECE. Although it may be way ahead of it's time, Brad Bird's Tomorrowland a masterpiece and a Disney movie that Walt would be proud of, as high caliber family entertainment that is sure to speak to the audience's hearts. When it acomplishes that, a different person comes out of the theater, wondering what can be done to make a better world and a better tomorrow.

    The romance element in this movie also sets it apart and will sure be discussed decades and even centuries from now, as "Bird's Forth Law of Robotics" (4. A robot can fall in love), will sure complement Asimov's three laws. Very brave and edgy storytelling from Disney and Bird, that must be praised for their courage and will sure inspire other artists and dreamers alike.

    Although I never liked any of Michael Giacchino's previous work, Tomorrowland's OST is absolutely epic and blends perfecty with the storytelling, making the Tomorrowland experience complete and full of character, with a vibrant and heroic score that sticks to your mind and heart.

    If this movie manage to inspire a single kid to become a great engineer, a scientist or a great artist, Brad Bird's mission is acomplished. As a movie, it not only entertains, but truly inspires, if you want to hear the beautiful message and promise that is Tomorrowland.

Those who "get it" when it comes to the film's message will no doubt enjoy this frothy, fun-filled romp. And those who don't probably can't wait for the end credits to roll (and not necessarily those associated with the movie). Expand

By that I mean tonally and narratively the film triedAs we all expected Tomorrowland was original, but it suffered from an identity crisis. By that I mean tonally and narratively the film tried to be too many things all at once. The film had great special effects, good action sequences, and pretty good acting, but squanders that on a weak narrative and a lack of clarification in general. Let me clarify what I mean, if you watch this movie in a theater you can enjoy yourself, but after you leave the theater and think about the film it won't make much sense. The lack of explanation leads to the film having a weak narrative, weak villains, and an overly complex premise, and a bunch of characters we see but don't understand. That being said the film is still enjoyable, and is loaded with good humor. So if you like funny, action packed, Sci-Fi you may want to check this out, just know the plot won't make sense the more you think about it. Expand

    Tommorowland. What a beautiful looking film, arresting in every way possible. But, it is all show, and lacks substance. First of all,Tommorowland. What a beautiful looking film, arresting in every way possible. But, it is all show, and lacks substance. First of all, Tommorowland is cliched to the max, plot twists are predictable, and the story is peppy and bubbly futuristic vibe. George Clooney gives a masterful performance, and Britt Robinson gives a good perfromance too. The worst part of Tommorowland is that it doesnt live up to the hype that it had. Brad Bird instead gave us a beautiful movie, but had no good film underneath that layer. Tommorowland is inspired by Disney's famous theme park, and there is a slight vibe added to it. There is Hugh Laurie as a maniac though. Sadly, it is a let down, but if you admire creativity, give this a watch. Expand
