#JustaQuickiePlease: Tomorrowland Review
This is a disappointing effort from the director of one of Pixar's finest feats; the Incredibles. A confused little film that is hard to adequately dissect because it is, even more, difficult to categorize. If this was to be a Science Fiction flick, it lacks the substance and seriousness to quantify it as such. If it was supposed to be a family-friendly fantasy, some of the surprising violence and overall confusing message and morality, earn it a well deserved to fail. Finally, if the goal was to create a melodrama, it just doesn't possess the script or performances to provide the quality to do so. So, what is it? Your guess is as good as mine. The only definitive is that it is a poorly acted, written, and developed piece that tries to be pro-environment but ends up vilifying the very same proverb it works to craft. 0 out of 5 Kernels: A Utopian tale that, sadly, has a dystopian effect.
