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.
May 28, 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.
May 27, 2015
Exhilarating on every level.

Submit uncritically to the spectacle, the in-the-moment rush. Soon the movie is whizzing off into the past and future with the wide-eyed elan of a spiffing theme-park ride.
May 25, 2015
Although "Tomorrowland" never runs out of objects or ideas, its supply of dramatic fuel soon springs a leak.
May 23, 2015
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.

For a while, it doesn't matter that the plot meanders. The story seems like a jigsaw puzzle inviting us to solve it. That's the fun part. However, when the resolution is presented, it underwhelms.

While Tomorrowland's sermonizing left me feeling grumpy... it may well have an entirely different effect on impressionable children.

We like apocalyptic futures, one character says, because they ask nothing of us; Tomorrowland can't quite sell the alternative, but at least it dares to imagine something different.
May 22, 2015
The film's eco-friendly concerns and general tone of messianic optimism are welcome.
May 22, 2015
Tomorrowland isn't terrible but, given its potential to be great, I left the cinema feeling rather sad.
May 22, 2015
Eye-popping and message-laden ...
May 22, 2015
Come for the humor and thrills and visual delights - there are many. Leave with the thought in your head: We can, we need to, do better. This is summer moviemaking at its best.
May 21, 2015
If only all of director Brad Bird's fantasy adventure had lived up to its promise.
May 21, 2015
Tomorrowland is a crazy, disjointed mess. But it's the good sort of crazy, and it's the sort of mess you want to lose yourself in.
May 21, 2015
An overly busy film that can, at times, be unbearably preachy.
May 21, 2015
Tomorrowland is a highly original, occasionally even visionary piece of sci-fi filmmaking, but that doesn't necessarily make it a good movie.
May 21, 2015
A spectacular ride for most of it, and while you're a little let down at the end, you kind of want to jump back on and do it all over again.
May 21, 2015
A gloppy, scattered sop to the power of positive thinking from director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, which offered a much sharper take on the subject of being special).
