‘Tomorrowland’ review: Great visuals, humor highlight family film on optimism

Inside each of us there are two wolfs. One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humanity, kindness, empathy, and truth. Which wolf wins? The one you feed. Tomorrowland taps into this Cherokee legend as the backbone to its theme.

Tomorrowland George Clooney die cut posterPersistent optimist Casey (Britt Robertson) is a brilliant girl trying to keep her father’s NASA job from ending. When her antics land her in a jail cell she finds a 1965 World’s Fair pin in her belongings. The pin begins an adventure that leads her to Frank Walker (George Clooney) a washed out boy-genus. Together, with the help of the audio-animanatronic girl Athina (Raffey Cassidy) set out to stop the end of our world.

The movie is visually stunning taking you into the other dimension that houses Tomorrowland. It is laugh-out-loud funny too although the story line feels a bit choppy at times.

There is also a very strong feeling of environmental activism, such as was seen in Wall-E. By the end of the 130 minutes the audience is left wanting to know what happens. Still, the effects, the humor and the optimism make for a fun movie with an inspiring message.

Directed by Brad Bird (The Incredbles), the film also stars Hugh Laurie, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn, Chris Bauer and Judy Greer.

Overall Tomorrowland receives stars 3 1/2 out of 5 stars

With a PG rating, the film is perfect fit for kids, plenty of clean fun and amazing visuals that will entertain — add star!
