Tomorrowland - Movie Review

Who's In It?

, and 

What's It About? 

When trying to sabotage a NASA launch pad deconstruction, Casey Newton is arrested and released later that night. With a pin that transports her to another world, she tries to get back to this better future.

Any Good? 

The opening credits of this film named Brad Bird as director and listed his best such as The Incredibles and Finding Nemo as his past works, which really set a high bar for Tomorrowland - one which it couldn't reach even with its jetpacks.

One film that this reminded me a lot of was Sharkboy and Lavagirl (take that for what you will) with the way it was so clearly directed at children at first. Teenager fighting the man and the government but it gets so preachy near the end; like Birdemic Bridge Troll preachy.

I noticed a lot of the film was "influenced" from other Sci-Fi media, it had things like the Infinite Improbability Drive from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy built into a Bioshock transport capsule that brought you to Vancouver from Mass Effect 3 - when I noticed it was a lot of references the film got a little better for me.

Add skyrails for Tomorrowland

Not much to see here for anyone over the age of maybe 15, but below will absolutely ADORE it, the end is built perfectly for them. What felt like budget actors instead of the ones they wanted resulted in odd acting in some places and a 25 year old woman (who CLEARLY looked it) as a teenager. After seeing it in 2D I can tell it was made for 3D, so pack off the communion kids to see it with their heavy pockets as of late and they'll love it.
