Tomorrowland – Budget of $190 million – 2 hours 10 minutes
Tomorrowland is about Casey, who finds a pin from the 1964 World Fair after being released from jail because she tried to save her father’s job. By touching this pin she is transported to what she believes is Tomorrowland. After seeing the potential of the future, she does more research on the pin and Casey’s world collides with Athena and Frank. Athena, whose mission it is to find special people (e.g. dreamers, thinkers, inventors) and leave pins, must get Casey to Frank safely. Frank, who came to live in Tomorrowland after being discovered by Athena at the 1964 World Fair, has been exiled from Tomorrowland but knows the world is doomed. Now, a deadly countdown has started and with Frank and Athena’s help, Casey could be the one to change the world’s fate.
Sounds like great premises … and it is. However, this movie gets boring real quick. More time went into the look and feel of this movie instead of the dialogue. And this movie is driven on the dialogue to explain each character’s background, their needs, and their connection to the overall plot and conclusion of the story. The effects are seamless and very realistic, but easily lost in boredom. With this strong premise, Disney can do much better.
I give this movie 1 out of 5 stars
