When arriving in Tomorrowland for the first time as Hugh Laurie uses his watch, a green "hidden Mickey" is seen on the watch-face. See more »
The waterway that the boats ride in during the 'it's a small world' attraction show the deeper middle channel (a deeper cut in the middle of the channel). The original ride at Disneyland (and the New York World's Fair) had no such channel. See more »
After the end credits, the Tomorrowland pin scrolls up like it was the last credit on a black background. It stops at the center of the screen. A hand reaches out to touch the pin from the side of the screen and they both vanish. See more »
I went and saw this with an open mind because of the mixed response, and I must say I had a blast.
The story is unique, creative and quite compelling. It is original science fiction which we do not get too often. The film is inspired by the Disney park, but at the same time, it's more of it's own thing.
It is well acted and the characters are quite likable and believable. Frank Walker is interesting, entertaining and has a sense of humor. Casey is also an interesting character. I think George Clooney and Britt Robertson portrayed their leading roles very well.
The film is also quite funny at times. During this film, I think I may have laughed more than I usually do at the movies, which is saying something.
I think Brad Bird did a very goo job directing. The visuals are stunning and the special effects, while mostly CGI, are impressive. The action scenes are neat and intense. There is not a single moment where I was bored with the film. It also pays a nice homage to the Sci-fi genre.
The one problem I had with this film is that I was expecting a little more of the "Tomorrowland" place and that the story needed a little more work.
Overall, this was a great film and I highly recommend it to fans of science fiction. Plus, I think it totally puts "The Haunted Mansion" (2003) to shame.
In the end, "Tomorowland" may not fully realize it's potential, but it should be satisfying as a fun and intriguing Disney family sci-fi/adventure comedy thrill ride.
