Brad Bird, director of the Iron Giant, the Incredibles, and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. This man made three of some of the best movies I have ever seen in my life and when I heard he was doing Tomorrowland, I had some faith. The trailers were odd and vague but I was still interested....WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS MOVIE?!?
There are very few movies that I hate: Dragonball Evolution, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, Prometheus, 12 Monkeys, etc. I completely hated every moment of watching Tomorrowland. Nothing about this movie was done right? The story? Yeah if you can call it that. It's a bunch of chase scenes and exposition jammed down your throats for two hours but yet nothing still made any sense.
The acting? Only good pieces of acting come from George Clooney and Hugh Laurie but both actors are barely in the movie and they obviously don't care about this movie. The actresses who play Casey AKA 'Bland Slate #1' and Athena AKA 'Bland Slate #2' are so bad to listen to since they take up more of the movie than Clooney...you know the guy on the damn poster?
The visuals are...okay. There is literally nothing impressive about the visuals about this world they barely show after building it up for so long.
The characters are obnoxious: you have the angst-y teenage girl you've seen a million times. The grumpy old man who refuses to help our main character even though every person in the audience knows they are going to work together and be friends so the movie just wastes our time even more. The villain who's a villain because he's a villain and he was born with the villain disease because villain. Athena was probably the only possibly okay things (not really) about the movie but she is plagued by the awful child actress disease.
This is one of those cases like Dragonball Evolution or the Happening where not a single thing was done right about the movie: acting, direction, visuals, writing, story. They were ALL butchered but somehow this movie was greenlighted to be shown in theaters? WHY?!? I hated this movie from beginning to end, I found no redeeming factors in the movie and I highly recommend you don't watch this movie unless its to awe at how bad it is. Disney, this is by far your worst movie yet and it is one of the worst movies ever made.
