How can you describe this film, a film that is original (very rare these days), surprising (also rare) and it has a perfect ratio of pretty much everything! Tomorrowland is a movie of WOW, that makes you want to go out and do something knowing that nothing is impossible!

This film has everything. It has a wonderful, heartwarming plot with a good 50/50 split of drama and comedy and in this story are many wonderful morals and messages. It can be called a tale, sci-fi, adventure or more, but this film has something for everyone.

Tomorrowland starts off when a young high schoolgirl named Casey, (Britt Robertson) is being told that the world is being polluted, destroyed and pretty much slowly ending. She asks why they don't do something about it. One day, she finds a mysterious pin which takes her to a world not in the future, not on Earth but somewhere beyond our knowledge, known only as Tomorrowland. She goes on adventure trying to get there and meets many people including Frank Walker (George Clooney) who is a former child genius and who actually lived in this place for some time.

This film is truly an enjoyable experience just to watch! Director Brad Bird has outdone himself making this master piece. From the perfect cast, to the original story, it is just breathtaking to watch. The cinematography is perfect. It is not too modest but not to forced either. The acting is spot on. George, Britt and the rest of the cast have great chemistry. They joke with other, pull us into their drama and make us believe their story. The relationship between the main characters vacillates. At times you're sad; at other times happy times in seeing these heartwarming relationships develop. Disney has outdone itself so many times, but again they have surprises us with a very original and nicely created film based on Walt's original vision of Tomorrow.

My favorite scene is when Casey, Frank and a girl named Athena (watch the film to learn more about this very special character) go to Paris where they launch something out of the Eiffel tower! It is action packed, funny and just stunning to watch. The special effects are out of this world and perfectly executed.

There are so many moral messages, but the main one is - Nothing is impossible and never stop questioning the world around you. In this film, Casey never stops asking questions and, because of this, a very surprising thing happens.

With the release of Tomorrowland on Blu-Ray and DVD, there are a whole bunch of cool and interesting bonus features. My favorite thing is that most of them are narrated by Brad Bird. These include the first day they started shooting, deleted scenes, Brad Bird vs. Weather (that was my favorite!) and even an exclusive animated short showing the creation of Tomorrowland!

This film has very few scenes that are too mature for younger kids so, I recommend it for ages 8 to 18. I also give this 5 out of 5 stars as this film is truly one of the greatest family films of the year.

This futuristic film has an advanced plot and is full of surprises. It uses a lot of special effects, green screen work and wires and contains a lot of action! This film is about a teenage girl who has glimpsed the future and is determined to figure out how to get there.

My favorite character is Frank Walker played by George Clooney. In the movie, he is very funny and sarcastic. I like this character because it seems like he has no hope, but then something happens and he is suddenly soaked in hope. I love everyone in the cast because their acting is so good and their work with ropes and harnesses and special effects is nothing short of amazing. The action looks very real.

I was very confused at the start of the movie because it does not give you a lot of information and I was not sure where the movie was going. I think that they did not have any idea how to start the movie so they chose to do it as if it was a documentary. It has that feel to it. However, it got less confusing as it developed and the actors and all the action scenes are fun and exciting. The ending is the best part because it leaves you hopeful and, now I want to see Tomorrowland 2.

Definitely get the DVD because there are a lot of fun extra scenes they had to cut out of the movie. I wish they had left these scenes in the movie because it would been less confusing. But, thankfully, most of it is saved and is now part of the extras. Also, the extras show how the movie was made. It looks like it was difficult for the actors and took a lot of takes. Brad Bird (Director) exercised his wild imagination and excelled in making things look realistic. I understand that he was an animator before he was a Director and had specific ideas about how he wanted everything to look. Well, he succeeded as everything looks beautiful and interesting.

I recommend this movie for ages 6 to 18 up because it shows some violence. I rate this 4.5 out of 5 stars. I hope you enjoy the movie!

Love this film. Walt would have been smiling I think. Britt Robertson, who we just saw in The Longest Ride, plays this role exceedingly well and outshines her two co-stars, George Clooney and Hugh Laurie. But, the real attraction of this film is the Tomorrowland imagery. Flying trains, personal air packs and all the accoutrements of an imaginary life in the future drew me in. It is fun, fantastic and simple. I would take my younger children to see this.
Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory. Directed by Brad Bird. Starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie, Judy Greer, Tim McGraw.
