Tommorowland film review

Tommorowland ran a marathon, but fell flat on its face just short of the finish line. That is probably the best way to describe it.

This movie is not bad in any right, but it could have been so much more. If I showed you the opening scene and the last scene, you would have thought it was going to be an amazing movie. And much of it is. But the slow, uninteresting set up of the characters and the lack of any real action in the movie makes it feel like it was an fantastic opportunity squandered. Because the premise of the movie is amazingly well thought through, and that is what drew me to watch it. 

It feels unfinished, and while some scenes, like the opening scene, the scene where the main characters look at the future of the earth, the scene where they are in an empty room, thinking about the fate of the world and the last scene, are stunning and incredibly well directed, the rest of the movie lacks that punch.

Hugh Laurie is probably the best actor in the movie, playing the ‘villain’. His performance is flawless, miles better than most of the other characters in the film, and he serves the film excellently. He is so emotionally powerful when he makes his speech about the human race being self-destroying, and it makes the message of the film so much more powerful.

It just feels…so…incoherent and messy, but it is still a pretty good movie.

Rating: 6.5 / 10
