Walt Disney Pictures released their new adventure/fantasy flick, “Tomorrowland,” into theaters this weekend. I just watched it, and thought it was very entertaining, delivering lots of great action and drama along with a very intriguing storyline. The movie stars: George Clooney, Judy Greer, Tim McGraw, Hugh Laurie, Kathryn Hahn, Thomas Robinson, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy and Keegan-Michael Key.
In the new flick, we’re given the backstory of characters, Frank Walker (George Clooney) and Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) Frank’s story is a little short, just summarizing how he met a young girl robot named Athena way back in 1964 when he was trying to get his jet pack invention entered into a contest. While it failed, Athena believed in him and brought him to a futuristic city named Tomorrowland.
After that, we got Casey’s backstory, which was quite a bit longer, just basically showing how Athena planted a unique pendent in Casey’s stuff which she later discovered after getting arrested for trespassing on NASA property. When she touched the pendent, it allowed her to see Tomorrowland without actually really being there. However, when the pendent eventually ran out of power, Casey went looking for answers in the wrong places.
And that’s when Athena showed back up on the scene to bail her out of a very life-threatening situation. From there, their journey resulted in Athena dumping her off at a now grown up Frank Walker’s house where they would eventually learn to work together to get themselves out of incredible danger.
Then Athena showed back up to reveal to them that she needed both of their help to return to Tomorrowland, and fix a major problem that could destroy Earth in just under 2 months. This led to a huge twist reveal that exposed the leader of Tomorrowland, Nix and what he was doing, was the actual cause of the major problem, and that he and his crooked plans needed to be destroyed in order to make things right again.
Again, I really enjoyed the full runtime of this movie. Every part was highly intriguing. I found myself wanting to know what would happen at every turn. The conclusion was highly suspenseful and dramatic. I gave the movie a solid B+ grade. Stay tuned. Also, get your favorite Movie stuff, and more by Clicking Here.
