AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Ambitious and visually stunning, Tomorrowland is unfortunately weighted down by uneven storytelling.

Critic Reviews for Tomorrowland

All Critics (215) | Top Critics (43)

Kids and teens should have a riot with the goofy robots, a neat small role by Key and Peele's Keegan-Michael Key and the fun action but adults expecting more will probably be slightly disappointed.

Starburst

It's slickly packaged, but below its surface Brad Bird's Tomorrowland is a preachy, chaotic jumble of themes and style at odds with itself from the get-go.

Tomorrowland concludes with as palpable a thud as one could possibly envision...

Reel Film Reviews

Tomorrowland is co-written with Bird by Damon Lindehof, tapping a similar dimension-bending beat as his TV hit Lost. Like that puzzler, Tomorrowland's plot leads viewers down a few too many rabbit holes without carrots to show for it.

Tampa Bay Times

An exciting look at the possibilities of the future and the necessity for determination, dedication and optimism to achieve it.

Audience Reviews for Tomorrowland

½

'Tomorrowland' is an ambitious film that is clearly aiming for something unique, but the effect is lost in the muddled and unfocused narrative.

You get high hopes for some efforts, and this is one of those. You want to like it. They even cue you with vintage photography of Disney's old World Of Tomorrow, but what's soon apparent is that unlike the olden days there is no real vision of the future to offer here, nada to aspire towards.
A work that cannot live up to its title. Except for the character of Athena, of which there is not enough.

Watching Britt Robertson play a teenaged, NASA-nerd anarchist is a bit jarring after seeing her essentially dry-hump a bucking barrel (yeah that's what they're called) while Scott Eastwood gives her twinkling dry-hump-eyes in "The Longest Ride." She's a baby-faced twenty-five-year-old at that awkward stage in her career when she looks either too old or too young for the starring roles for which she's cast. I'm not sure that she anchored this film or the other as well as she needed to.

Luckily though, "Tomorrowland" boasts a wealth of sumptuous visuals: a shiny and vintage 1960s Disney World, a bright and gleaming futuristic metropolis, and fun smash-cuts of the real world into the O beautiful Tomorrowland commercial of spacious skies and amber waves of grain.

The movie gets a bit confusing and convoluted about why Frank got expelled from Tomorrowland Academy of Jump-Suited Youths, what Nix's save-the-world-by-destroying-it endgame actually is, and most importantly, how Casey inexplicably "knows how things work" - this magic touch without which the character would just dwindle into Regular Girl all over again.

All the kid actors are flippin' adorbz. Thomas Robinson (whom I loved in "The Switch") is all prodigious ingenuity and chubby-cheeked puppy love; Raffey Cassidy is all freckly, blue-eyed, pertly-coifed, robotic charisma as Athena, SNASA's android talent scout; and it's nice to see Pierce Gagnon again (who was great in "Looper" and "Wish I Was Here") even though he only has a minor part.
