Tomorrowland, as first conceived by Walt Disney back in the 1950s and 1960s, was to showcase what the future would hold for the world. It was and still is Disney's top draw in the theme parks. See more »

Maybe expectations were too high: Brad Bird is a fantastic director, whether it's animation or movies, all his work has been top notch so far. Damon Lindelhof, though more hit and miss, has participated in some of the most impactful (scifi) work of recent years. And yes, the trailers were actually really cool. Also, maybe it was more aimed at children that I expected / wanted it to be. However this doesn't excuse two major faults in this movie: 1) pacing is incredibly slow. Nothing really ever actually happens. It's just 'there' the whole time and is quite remarkably boring at times. 2) It's quite idiotic in its moral. Yes the world is going to hell blablabla but, even if aimed at 6 year olds, there are better & more subtle ways to get the point across. So yes, very disappointed. Acting was good (good to see Hugh Laurie back); visuals were nice but, at the end of the day, I was pretty bored for 2+ hours.
