Brad Bird directs Tomorrowland like an action movie about 50% of the time. The other 50% of the time, Tomorrowland gets a little preachy. Britt Robertson (who played “Angie” in Under the Dome) portrays a precocious teenager named Casey Newton. Casey is given a Tomorrowland pin by a mysterious girl (Raffey Cassidy) with the unlikely name of Athena. When Casey touches the pin, she’s teleported to Tomorrowland. Of course, Tomorrowland is very very cool. Rockets blast off, folks fly around with jetpacks. But, something is afflicting both our world and Tomorrowland. Casey holds the key, but first she has to find George Clooney. Together, they have to take on the Bad Guy played by Hugh Laurie. Clooney and Laurie are not given enough to do. And, there needed to be more action and less talking in a movie like this. But, I was mildly entertained and you will be too. GRADE: B

    I was disappointed by the reviews I read. No hurry to see this. We’re going to catch up on the new Avengers movie.

    Jeff, THE AVENGERS 2 is a much better movie than TOMORROWLAND. But TOMORROWLAND is more entertaining than those negative reviews would lead you to believe.
