Such a terrific movie -- a fun and poignant ride!
Verified purchase
I love this movie so much, and am both surprised and not surprised that there wasn't more buzz about it when it was in the theatres. The acting was terrific (I'm such a Britt Robertson fan now!), I still laugh out loud on repeat viewings as the dialogue is so strong, and Hugh Laurie's monologue at the end gets me every time. On top of all the awesomeness, the message at its core is that we each have a role to play in the future of our world — which, IMHO, makes this movie required viewing for kids and adults alike. Two thumbs very enthusiastically up.

Hopeful and Inspiring Surprisingly GREAT!
Verified purchase
I saw this movie advertised years ago and I scrolled right past it because I had no idea what it was about and I wasn't curious. Recently someone told me that they saw it and they said that it was an amazing movie. They, however, gave me very few details as to not give away anything relevant. I decided to rent Tomorowland and I must say I was pleasantly surprised, so much so that now I am going to buy the movie! Believe it or not this movie ranks right up there with The Matrix and a few of my other favorite movies that I must watch at least once a year. Tomorrowland awakened the optimist that lie dormant inside of me for too long.

If you want to feel good after a movie ends, and you want to remember that hopeful and happy place that usually only exist in children, this movie is for you. I'm still smiling and excited to own a copy so that I can rewatch it whenever I need a dose of hope.

A movie aimed at young adults which is engaging for adults also.
Verified purchase
So this is a Young Adult movie (a YA), but actually, it is also interesting and engaging for adults for the most part. YA generally means plot-driven not character-driven, so, don’t expect a whole bunch of character development, (unless you love disappointment), but even so, this movie really works. All the lead actors work well together. George Clooney is a real bonus, but what is amazing is how giving he is to other actors the scenes he’s in. I guess he is George Clooney - and he’s one of Hollywood’s stand outs. But t, the art direction is also wonderful, as is the direction, plus the CGI sets. Good costuming, lighting, and the writing is engaging - even though the finale is not what one might have hoped for - but honestly, it so I frequently is. This movie is worth your time and watching it will not make you regret the time you spent on it. And for those who need religious and whatnot reviews - I don’t recall one piece of off-colour language and there were no mentions of Gods or, whatever religious people think of as non-gods.

100% children's movie with a balance of Mary Sue wokeness and deep message.
Verified purchase
Safe for children.
Minimal blood (aside from a brief quick healing nosebleed). Children with average IQs might not even notice people getting murdered left and right thanks to the advanced and highly effective weaponry used that would disintegrate its targets into a puff of ash. In fact, the movie goes out of its way to remind you who it's made for by avoiding any sense of realism and take young minds in a captivating beautiful journey into a mesmerizing beautiful world only the best strain of weed can make possible in the mind of a grown adult.

The Mary Sue saves the world
Main actress is zero depth and perfect in every possible way. In fact, if it weren't for a quick nosebleed, the movie offers zero clue that she's human. It's un-ironic how the movie's producer turned down an offer to be involved in Disney's version of the Star Wars franchise, which was responsible for taking the concept of Mary Sue to unprecedented levels. Now, for those of you reading this who probably missed the times the movie went out of its way to make it blatantly obvious that she is the definition of perfection, are probably wanting of some evidence to prove my point. If this is the case I cannot help you. But if you did notice I'll add that you probably missed that it would take an absolute genius to make a UAV out of a Blade 300X that not only you can control with a smartphone app, but a curious bystander can just snatch away from mid air without risking losing half of his face or at least, getting his fingers severely damaged. I must admit, the fact that I know this makes me as much as an Aspbergers type than makes her character a Mary Sue.

The deep philosophical message
Whether by accident or genius intent, the movie pulls off subtly offering a deep, timeless philosophical message about free will and media's influence on people, while providing the woke crowds the satisfaction that Hollywood has put out yet another climate change awareness lesson driven almost exclusively by need-no-man girl power, if it weren't for its fully disposable male counterpart.

Conclusion
It's not very common when Hollywood puts together such a brilliant level of misdirection. It simultaneously feeds polar opposite crowds, keeping each busy watching one hand while doing something different with the other, and it does all of this in a package made for children and, at face value, by children.

4 stars if you're a child between 1-7 years old.
5 stars if you're woke.
3.5 stars if you're dabbling into existentialism.
2 stars if have Aspergers and like to pretend your opinion matters by creating a movie review.

Great Modern Disney Movie
Verified purchase
Really cute movie. Casted perfectly in my opinion. George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, and all the others really sold it. This was instantly a household favorite for us and we got it for a great price with the Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital copy all included so now everyone has it available on their tablets and whatnot when we are on longer drives and entertainment is needed. Definitely recommended.

A story about hope for the future
Verified purchase
I was completely skeptical about this movie when I heard about it. How could they forge an entire film based upon one of the “lands” from Disneyland? I was happily surprised by this great family sci-fil story. It focuses upon Britt Robertson who is concerned about the planet and wants to find solutions. Her hope holds the future. She hooks up with George Clooney who is a cynical old man. They make the perfect duo. The story is full of wonder, adventure, creativity, excitement and surprises. It really will inspire you.

Good Film, nice picture, excellent sound
Verified purchase
I love this film. It has some interesting ideas and lots of fun effects. It is not very serious but offers lots of action. Also, one of the best last lines ever from a dying robot. Amazingly, it sort of predicts the effect of fake news on the population. Fascinating, as Spock would say.

An amazing cast anchors this film's story all the way to the end.

Surprisingly, I really was mesmerized by this family science fiction adventure film. The main reason is that I do believe anything is possible and that we all can create a brighter future.
