Consensus: Ambitious and visually stunning, Tomorrowland is unfortunately weighted down by uneven storytelling.

It's hard to say exactly who the audience is for this packed-to-the-brim, sci-fi/action-adventure/family romp.

Although "Tomorrowland" never runs out of objects or ideas, its supply of dramatic fuel soon springs a leak.

Cinema Crazed

A solid film with unclear intentions and an apparent lack of a primary protagonist.

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.

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.

...It's really nice to escape into the gleaming piece of chrome-ornamented optimism that is the Disney brand... but handcuffed by the happy ending edict, Tomorrowland hits a hollow note in its final frames as it beckons the big exit through gift shop.

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.

If you can get past its narrative muddle, really irritating dialogue and a plethora of unanswered questions, Tomorrowland offers a potent metaphor about the triumph of human hope and ingenuity. Wish it were enough.

Akin to spending 2 plus hours trapped inside a video game. Some cool special effects but absolutely nothing else. Blech.

Watching Britt Robertson play a teenaged, NASA-nerd anarchist is a bit jarring after seeing her essentially dry-hump a bucking barrel (yeah that's what… More

'Tomorrowland' is an ambitious film that is clearly aiming for something unique, but the effect is lost in the muddled and unfocused narrative.

Glossy visual style, some sparse exciting action and family friendly humor may trick us at first, that we were into some kind of disney sanitized back to the… More
