Tomorrowland Blu-ray Review | The Reel Roundup

TRR: Whatever happened to our sense of optimism? That's the question that lies at the heart of director Brad Bird's Tomorrowland, a film that takes into account Hollywood's seemingly endless preoccupation with disaster epics and post-apocalyptic genre fare and goes in the complete opposite direction — delivering a tale about dreamers and their potential to change the world for the better. A story about a disillusioned inventor named Frank Walker (George Clooney) and an optimistic teenager named Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) who set out to save humanity, Tomorrowland didn't do too well at the box office, with many critics bemoaning the plot (written by Bird and Lost's Damon Lindelof) as being clunky and lackluster. However, if it's whiz-bang special effects and a rip-roaring adventure you're after, there's still plenty of fun to be had. The film's retro-fantastic visuals look amazing on Blu-ray, and there are some neat bonus features to boot. If you're a fan of Bird's The Iron Giant, The Incredibles and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, you can't really go wrong with Tomorrowland.
