Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as "Tomorrowland."Wikipedia
Yes, out-of-work NASA engineers do breed daughters brimming with insatiable curiosity (Interstellar). Tomorrowland also seeks to imagine parallel universes, time-space conundrums, and ecologically worn end-of-world scenarios. However, that’s where the similarity ends. Where Interstellar is about man’s quest for answers and the price it takes, Tomorrowland is a more run-of-the-mill affair about two worlds that is least interersted in the in-betweens.
Celebrating the ‘can do’ spirit, Tomorrowland is a futuristic fantasy worthy of Steven Spielberg in his prime. So go ahead, be amazed.
With the narrative shifting between various dimensions and story shifting gears, the film suffers from uneven storytelling. There are dull periods in between where the action sags and your attention wanders. George Clooney, on whose name the film is being sold, doesn't really enter the action till very late.
The visuals are pleasant. The acting is good. The story is good enough. But not one factor in the film pushes itself beyond this line, towards greatness.For a film with such immense potential, Tomorrowland plays it too safe.
Tomorrowland is an ambitious, sprawling tale involving different generations, time travel and visions of the future. If there's one simple fact that the film clearly establishes during its expansive run-time, it is that humanity's collective actions will have a direct impact on the days and years to come.
...this film is worth one watch at least. If you're a geek/nerd/science enthusiast, you'll be swimming through bones to pick. If visual razmatazz is more up your alley, this is the ticket to ask for this week.
There is action, adventure, science fiction and some serious themes about man kind’s survival. An interesting and a very optimistic point is made amidst all the gloom and doom as see and hear of in real life. Brad Bird may not have an answer but he does have an idea which is the premise of the film.
The film is also fast paced, and there's a fair amount of action as well so it's never boring as such. It's just that there's nothing beyond the surface, and that's a major step down from a filmmaker who brought us 'Ratatouille' and 'The Incredibles'.
You don't want to go on this ride, even if it is with George Clooney...Tomorrowland looks like an newly-rented apartment that is yet to be furnished. Supposedly created by the most brilliant, there's no sign of genius or idiosyncrasy in the characterless and charmless cityscape. It looks like a facade that has nothing beyond it.
Unlike other films that speak about dystopian societies, "Tomorrowland" has a very positive and optimistic approach. Visually, the film is bright and cheerful thanks to cinematographer Claudio Miranda's brilliant camera work, production designer Scott Chambliss's fine production output and music composer Michael Giacchino's elevating background score.The only issue is that though the film ends on a very upbeat note, it does not offer any solutions to the issues it raised.
Watch Tomorrowland to see science fiction come to life – Frank zipping around on a jetpack, a freaky home invasion, cool gadgets and slick fight scenes and jaw-dropping set-pieces. A glimpse of the future, with a little bit of preaching.
A futuristic Disney fantasy in a choppy and tiresome narrative...
