Critic Reviews for Tomorrowland

All Critics (279) | Top Critics (49)

  • It's hard to say exactly who the audience is for this packed-to-the-brim, sci-fi/action-adventure/family romp.

  • Though it's not director Brad Bird's first retro-futuristic rodeo, Tomorrowland is his most stridently sermonizing.

    Jun 2, 2015
  • An aggressively optimistic script admonishes the lazy and irresolute and urges humanity to end war and save the environment; the proselytizing burdens an already onerous plot.

  • Exhilarating on every level.

  • Although "Tomorrowland" never runs out of objects or ideas, its supply of dramatic fuel soon springs a leak.

    May 25, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Until its final act, Tomorrowland plays as a lighthearted techno-conspiracy thriller, Men in Black by way of Nancy Drew with the occasional whiff of Philip K. Dick paranoia and Pixarian high concept.

Audience Reviews for Tomorrowland

    Right at the beginning of the piece, there is a flashback story to explain the history of George Clooney's character. I think that idea stretched to 90 minutes would have made a far better film. What we have instead is a sermon. That's fine, and I'm essentially on board with the content, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Even brushing that aside, Tomorrowland is still somewhat of a mess. Very disappointing given how impressive Director Brad Bird's filmography is.

    Despite some beautiful visuals and an ending that seems strangely optimistic, Tomorrowland is really nothing but a disappointment for Disney. The plot is a mess and the film doesn't allow the audience to connect to where the film wants them to go. For a film entitled Tomorrowland, precious little time is spent in the city and what we do see is very limited in scope and hollow. The film wants Tomorrowland to sort of be this gleaming mystery. This makes the film promise more than it delivers and given Brad Bird's track record, the film is a bit of a let down. Well-meaning perhaps, but still a let down. Rating: 60

    Tomorrowland is original, beautiful and fun. However it does have quite a bit of exposition which I suppose is expected from a film of this caliber but overall Tomorrowland is a solid film and has a very well thought out vision from Brad Bird.

    Brad Bird makes a Disneyland commercial. Had it been entertaining, he could have been forgiven, but the first half is completely dull. When the excitement finally begins, so do the plot holes, until it finally plunges into a mediocre conclusion. (The only highlight is the robotic romance between Clooney and Cassidy, but considering the age difference, it's also creepy). Too bad it's positive message was lost in the fray.
