Tomorrowland is a science-fiction adventure film. The movie is based on two kids, one who attended the 1964 World’s Fair, and a teenager from this decade. Each found a pin with the letter “T” marked on it. When they touched the pin, they were transported to Tomorrowland. Both team up in the present day to learn about what happened to Tomorrowland. They embark on a dangerous mission to a location caught between time and space. If you enjoy more light-hearted science-fiction films, I would definitely recommend this movie. Disney fit the movie in perfectly with the era of discovery in the sixties and with the desire for adventure that most teenagers posses today. One can tell that the story was well planned and it paid off. The movie is entertaining from start to finish. This movie is also great for kids and I would recommend this as a good movie to watch with the whole family. All of the actors and actresses in this movie performed their roles very well. My only complaint about the movie is that the plot is predictable. Overall, I would rate this film four out of five stars. @Sapphirereads of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

A highly flawed movie with some good ideas. Unfortunately, what could (and probably should) have been a story of redemption is instead paved over by a more shop worn buddy/road picture. Anyone who spends his time cynically watching a doomsday clock, as Clooney's character does, clearly has an interesting emotional arc to explore. His journey to that point from the optimistic kid we see at the beginning (and back again) could have made Tomorrowland a classic in the Capra mold. The beginning of the film, set during the 1964 World's Fair, seems to promise such a movie but the character is instead abruptly discarded for what feels like the movie’s second Act 1. When he finally reappears, quite a ways in, his connection to the child actor at the beginning seems tenuous at best. We have to be reminded (through flashbacks) of who he is. A lot of his story, and what is happening generally in the film, is shoe-horned in through dialog. This includes his relationship with the film's villain who appears basically out of nowhere in the final act. The relationship between the adult Clooney and child android skirts creepiness (mostly) but feels like the proceed of a narrative wrong turn anyway. So, it’s all a bit of a hot mess. That said, I have to admire the balls of a blockbuster daring to question what the effect of a constant stream of cynically produced and often nihilistic entertainment might have on society at large and what it might be reflecting. Tomorrowland's answer is pretty silly but it's still impressive a film like this would even pose the question (albeit mostly in the villain's expository monolog). Heavy messages aside, the film still has it’s fun whiz-bang moments and contains probably my favourite Vancouver location shoot: our very own Planetarium (interior and exterior) as 1964’s ’Hall of Invention'!

The special effects are good, especially when the young Frank Walker visits Tomorrowland for the first time and beholds all its technological wonders, but like an earlier Disney production, "The Black Hole", the overall theme turns dark. The movie suffers from too much ADD-inducing action, action, action, with events accelerated to hypernormal speed, giving it a cartoonish feel. It cannot compete with movies like "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" or "Swiss Family Robinson", because those were based on well-written novels that were already popular when the films were made and didn't use computer-generated imagery that allowed cinematographers to defy the laws of physics. "Tomorrowland" is based on, well, just a movie script with a confusing story line. It did not draw me in like a good novel would. Further, despite having a good sound system, I had difficulty following some of the dialogue, especially the young Raffey Cassidy, who plays "Athena". She has a heavy British accent and in many scenes doesn't enunciate well. I fault the movie's sound engineers for that: They could have processed her voice with speech compression for more "punch", or had her re-record her dialogue in a sound studio with a voice coach until she got it right.

I give "Tomorrow Land" five stars out of five. I really liked Tomorrow Land. I usually don't like Disney, don't like fantasy sci fi & don't like movies aimed at younger audiences. In spite of all that I enjoyed this movie as the theme is deeper than the pretense. Tomorrow Land on the surface appears to be about self fulling prophecy as generated by the computers to control the masses. However, I see it as an attack on all of the gloom & prophecies out their from various print sources, commentators, media, etc. Wow. Well done Disney. Please do a sequel.

I thought that this was a great movie, with lots of morals. I suggest that seven year-olds should not watch this.

I really needed this dose of hope and optimism! I think we could all use a little more of the "how do we fix it?" mindset!
Age demographic: probably ages 8-12-ish, but I enjoyed it as an adult even though it was a little simple.

Lecturer: The polar ice caps aren't waiting for us to decide if climate change is real. Rising coastal waters, intensifying weather patterns. They're all punching our one-way ticket to... Dystopia. By definition, "not perfect." Huxley's Brave New World... Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451... Orwell's 1984. Once considered fiction, these futuristic novels are actually happening right now and they seem to be getting worse.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: someone is seen holding a severed robot's head. another robot is stabbed. Several scenes feature parts of the world in total catastrophic ruin. we see a robotic skull that is charred black. the eyes suddenly open wide and it starts talking.
