I have to say before I get into the “review” that I do not LIKE Science fiction at all! So, when I saw the trailer for Tomorrowland I was like ok, another sci/fi movie. Then my husband asked to go, so I got us into the screening last Monday. We got to see it on IMAX. I think IMAX is a must for this movie.
Now let me get into it. I actually LOVED the movie. I walked in already thinking I would hate it and I didn’t like it, well to my surprised I enjoyed every minute of it. The movie follows the story of a young boy trying to showcase his jetpack idea at the 1964 Worlds Fair. This boy gets a special coin that transports him to another world called Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland is where all the inventors and creative people develop amazing ideas. After we learn the story of Frank, we learn about Casey and her desire to go to space. She also receives that special coin that takes her to Tomorrowland.
The story then moves along with Frank and Casey trying to save the world from its own destruction, by changing Tomorrowland. The movie has action, as well as drama. I don’t think it’s appropriate for kids 6 and under, as it does has some mild-Disney violence. George Clooney (Frank) is great, Britt Robertson (Casey) is also good.
If there is one thing I would change is that I didn’t understand the plot as easily as I believe it was meant to be. My husband got it right away because he loves sci/fi, but I left with a million questions.
I do think the ultimate message of the movie is why it’s worth watching. Not just saving the world but keeping creativity alive and following your dreams. Nothing is impossible. All in all I enjoyed it a lot, so much that I want to see it again. I think it’s also worth watching just for the graphics alone!
Did you go check it out? It’s playing now! Let me know what you thought! Did you like it?
