  1. You enter this movie being introduced to a boy (a young Frank Walker), a child genius who has taken his invention to the World Fair. When told to come back when he’s older and his invention works, he is snuck into Tomorrowland by Athena.
    Jump forward and we are introduced to Casey. A teenage girl who knows ‘what works’ and is trying to keep her father employed by sabotaging his place of employment. When she is caught and arrested she come into possession of a pin, and that is where the real story begins.
    Tomorrowland offers glimpses of brilliance for me, but didn’t quite follow through. When I spoke to someone from school who had also seen it, she likened it to The Terminator with it’s robots etc and I really could see where she was coming from. I loved that they gave a real strength of character with the female leads, and they performed extremely well and were believable in their roles. Although not normally a fan of Mr Clooney, I think he was well cast in his role as well, but I did prefer Hugh Laurie as Nix,  a character he played well.
    There were aspects I loved about the movie, for example I loved that it featured what is happening within the world as it talked about how we as the human race are destroying the lands in which we live and in that point it really made you think about your place here on earth and what you can do to preserve it.
    We did walk out of the movie discussing various things, and in that part, it was great.
    The ending for me really was a bit of a non event, I think more could have been done with it, but in saying that it wasn’t ‘bad’ either, I think I just expected more, being that it was Disney.
    It’s not something I would take my younger children to, but my teenage son would probably enjoy it. I just didn’t personally feel my children would get the movie, and I’m not sure the violence is age appropriate for them. It’s not particularly bad, but not something my children enjoy.
    All in all I would probably give the movie a 6.5 out of 10 however my husband enjoyed it so I’ll be interested to see how he rates it.  We all have different likes, different expectations and different interpretations on things, and this was just mine
