Movie review score
3/5

What’s it about?
A headstrong teenage science enthusiast (Britt Robertson) teams up with a bitter inventor (George Clooney) to re-enter a trans-dimensional utopia and save the world from destruction.

What did we think?
Director Brad Bird has made dazzlingly fun movies such as The Incredibles and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and while Tomorrowland isn’t as good as his past work, it’s definitely in the same spirit. The visuals are very creative, and the main characters are endearing, with Robertson being an especially lively presence. The plot (co-written with Lost and Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof) is a bit hard to follow and sort of unsatisfying, but it’s still charming enough to be worth the ride.

    I couldn’t help but feel that Bird’s work is again pushing the Objectionist philosophy. A world where the elite are separated into a Utopia and a chosen hero exists who is just “better” because they were born better. A handful of weird character decisions too which were purely to allow for crazy visuals.

    Too long and not thought out enough. But very pretty.
    3 stars.
