In an original pre-teen sci-fi entertainment, George Clooney plays an inventor who hopes and works for a better tomorrow. Brad Bird has put in all the right ingredients into this high budget film - humour, cast and an original story - but it fails to meet expectations. It, however, has an inspiring and thought triggering script with Clooney and Hugh Laurie starring together for the first time.
When a scientifically curious Casey (Britt Robertson) has visions of a futuristic world, she is set on a 5 dimensional adventure with Frank Walker (Clooney) and a mysterious young girl who exposes her to unlimited possibilities and secret worlds.
The film offers an optimistic and ambitious alternative to existing global issues encouraging the young audience to dream and explore. Hardcore science-fiction lovers and techo geeks will find some loops in the script ridiculous. The suspense is, however, tactfully maintained with the story unravelling in layers engaging viewers to guess the next piece in the puzzle.
The concepts of time travelling, multiple dimensions, space travel and teleportation are addressed at their basics without going too deep into the phenomenons. The film offers an imaginative peek into the possible hi-tech future. It is packed with gorgeous visuals and advanced gadgets. The story is told rather unevenly but the core message is positive and motivating.
Tomorrowland is highly unlikely to imprint on people's thoughts as it is a little too much for children is comprehend and a little too less for adults to enjoy.
