Movie Reviews: 'Tomorrowland'

Tomorrowland (Review) 

By Jake Buchanan 

Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird and stars Brit Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, and George Clooney as three people who join together in an epic adventure to find out what and where Tomorrowland is. Did this original story with the name of a Disney ride leave audiences wanting to ride again and again or does it have to be fixed for maintenance?  

The acting in this movie is awesome across the board from Clooney to Robertson but who stands out the most is Raffey Cassidy, because Cassidy’s character captures the moments when she’s on screen with just the little nudges and sayings here and there that I remember the most over everyone else in the movie. 

Brad Bird’s captures awesome science fiction in Tomorrowland, and not only is this movie funny, has great action, and an interesting adventure but all of the science fiction scenes whether action or just in the moment are amazing. 

Tomorrowland of course has a few flaws with it such as many movies do, and I have to say these problems I didn’t have a big problem with. During the journey though the movie sometimes the tone shifted from what started as a science fiction to a mystery adventure, and that tone changing isn’t that major of a problem but it just standing out in my mind. There are two disappointing situations that I have with Tomorrowland; one not getting enough of actual Tomorrowland, and two that the last 25-30 minutes of the movie begin to just fall apart story wise. 

Other than these three minor problems I have with Tomorrowland it’s still worth seeing because not only is it basically a science fiction mystery, but it’s entirely an original and creative movie that defiantly stands on its own without any connections to any other movies in that genre. 

That’s why I’m giving Tomorrowland a 3.5/5 is due to how original this movie is, how awesome the science fiction is shown, and how good the acting is from all the characters. The minor three problems I have with Tomorrowland is why it’s not a 5/5 movie, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets a sequel which I would hope fix these problems.
