Director: Kimi Webber,
Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as "Tomorrowland."
It's hard to say exactly who the audience is for this packed-to-the-brim, sci-fi/action-adventure/family romp.
Though it's not director Brad Bird's first retro-futuristic rodeo, Tomorrowland is his most stridently sermonizing.
An aggressively optimistic script admonishes the lazy and irresolute and urges humanity to end war and save the environment; the proselytizing burdens an already onerous plot.
Exhilarating on every level.
Although "Tomorrowland" never runs out of objects or ideas, its supply of dramatic fuel soon springs a leak.
