Tomorrowland is officially rotten! (reviews)


There are 70 reviews counted for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland and the Tomatometer is at 56% (the screenshot above is a few hours old lol). This might be Brad Bird's first "bad" film.

Reviews:
New York Times: "It's important to note that "Tomorrowland" is not disappointing in the usual way. It's not another glib, phoned-in piece of franchise mediocrity but rather a work of evident passion and conviction. What it isn't is in any way convincing or enchanting."

IGN: "All that being said, Tomorrowland is not the complete home run it could be - and I wish it was. Surprisingly, especially given how well Ghost Protocol moved, there’s something off on the pacing here. Some of the scenes are a bit sluggish and don’t have the energy and sense of childlike awe you feel Bird was going for, even as other scenes are completely engrossing.
The ending is also a mixed bag, with some really entertaining beats intermixed with a villain/master plan reveal that feels halfhearted, when you consider this character could have been used in a much more significant and meaningful manner."



Seattle Times: "Though it’s made with great energy and inventiveness, there’s something ultimately muddy about “Tomorrowland”; it’s as if director Brad Bird got so caught up in the sets and effects and whooshing editing that the story somehow slipped away [...] Clooney, despite some impressive movie-star stubble, is given little chance to demonstrate his trademark charisma"

Las Vegas Weekly: "The 130-minute film is almost all setup for a disappointing payoff, with a handful of exhilarating set pieces that aren’t enough to counterbalance the slow pacing, the exposition-heavy plotting and the oddly preachy message that shows up in the final act [...] it’s more interested in telling the audience about the importance of fun than in actually having any."
