Tomorrowland (2015) Review

Tomorrowland (2015) is an American science-fiction mystery adventure movie that I was anticipating to see because it was filmed in a few places that I know. You can find a list of locations that this movie was filmed at, at the end of this review. Director and screenplay writer Brad Bird (Ratatouille (2007), The Simpsons (1989), The Incredibles (2004), Up (2009)) excelled at making this entertaining movie that my family enjoyed. The movie had a budget of $190 million and grossed over $208.6 million worldwide. It is a beautiful adventure movie with breathtaking sets and actors that did a phenomenal job with their parts. The film revolves around technology and how wonderful it can be if used correctly. Viewers would enjoy this movie best if they gave the movie their undivided attention.

Tomorrowland began by showing us Frank Walker (George Clooney - Gravity (2013), Ocean’s Eleven (2001), Up in the Air (2009), The Descendants (2011)) as an adult telling people about him at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. The movie then switches to several flashbacks including one showing Frank meeting a young girl named Athena. Athena (Raffey Cassidy - Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism (2015), Dark Shadows (2012)) gives Frank a pin with a "T" symbol on it. She then told him to go with her on the "It’s a Small World" attraction in the fair. Soon after he was seen being transported to Tomorrowland which is a futuristic cityscape. The movie progresses to be an amazing watch as the plot unravels at a good pace. Casey (Britt Robertson - The Longest Ride (2015), The First Time (2012), Dan in Real Life (2007)) found a mysterious pin in her belongings after being arrested for vandalism. The pin transports her to a world called Tomorrowland that is just breathtaking. Athena found her in a shop after the pin runs out of power and that battle scene was spectacular - love every bit of it. What happens next is for you to discover.

I would recommend families to see this movie because it is suitable for all ages. The actors did a remarkable job with their roles. Everything about the movie was splendid and could not have been better. I truly enjoyed the sets and sceneries.
