Movie Review - Tomorrowland
At this point, we flash forward to present day (2014) and MINI SPOILER find a rebelious Casey sneaking onto a NASA shuttle launch platform and sabotaging the equipment set there to dismantle the platform. The framing of this scene seems to be to frame her as a no-good troublemaker but that concept is quickly destroyed by the scene the next morning where her actions are explained and we see her thoughtful and intelligent interaction with her family. During the night, a mysterious (yet familiar from the Tomorrowland scene) figure puts a special pin in Casey's stuff.
In a somewhat predictable turn of events, she gets caught in her next attempt to sabotage the platform equipment and is taken to jail. This leads to the scene from many/most of the trailers where Casey discovers the Tomorrowland pin that transports her (at least mentally) to Tomorrowland when she touches it. The crossover visual effects with the pin are pretty cool and the transition between real world and Tomorrowland is a great effect.
I loved it! ...and I look forward to taking a return trip to Tomorrowland in the future. :)
4.5 out of 5 stars
