Last night I took my Mini to a special screening of Tomorrowland in IMAX!
My Mickey rating would be: 3.5/ 5 °o°
Tomorrowland is rated PG and I think it would be an ok movie for ages 10+
They use the words damn and hell few times in the movie and there are quite a few action/ fight scenes. There are quite a few human looking robots (called animatronic androids) that get killed or maimed, but because they are robots there is no blood and gore. This might however frighten small children.
The story in my opinion took a very long time to get to the point. I felt like the whole movie was building up for the last 30 minutes. It dragged on a bit to long. There is also a bit of a political agenda ie global warming & over population. So if this might bother you, you might avoid this movie. Many times the main character asks how can we fix these problems and a good solution was never given.
If you are hoping for a large amount of Disney nostalgia this is not your movie. Other than the very brief scene on the It’s a small world ride and the actual Tomorrowland looking similar to the theme park area. These parts are not long at all.
It it was a cute story with a pretty good cast that just fell flat. I’m glad that I didn’t pay full price to see it!
Now the one really good thing I can say is that the visual effects are very well done, and in IMAX it was very enjoyable.
I had hoped to really enjoy this movie, but it’s not in my opinion a big blockbuster. It was a cute movie that would be a good summer rental! Pay the $2-$3 dollars to rent it instead of $7-$14 to see it in theaters.
There is a very quick scene at the end of the credits, but it’s not worth waiting for.
I hope this review helps you and I look forward to reviewing Inside Out next month!
