User Reviews

 
Superb acting in an otherwise unfinished feeling film
23 March 2019 | by aidanratesmoviesSee all my reviews

The House of Tomorrow is based off a great book which deserves to be made into a great film, this is not what we got. Instead the final product of this shelved work, seems more rushed than we hope for. That being said, there is still enjoyment to be found in this film, from all the fun filled performances, especially that from Alex Wolf, and the daring sense of adventure and friendship, which the film unfortunately doesn't get to reveal its full potential of, but what we got is still enough to settle for. The film is funny, but ultimately is too faced paced for its own good. We only hoped they could have spent more time on it, maybe then we could have got something great, rather than something simply fine. My Rating: 7.75/10
