By Suzanne A. Marshall from the July 2015 Edition
Starring: George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie
Director: Brad Bird
“Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.”
This is a Disney production so one can assume that the special effects and art direction are going to be superb. For that reason we viewed this film at an IMAX theatre in order to enjoy the full experience. Indeed, we were not disappointed in that regard. Given that it is a science fiction story it is necessary to let your imagination run with it otherwise, you might be tempted to poke holes in actual theory and question certain plot points. But it is what it is and the pure fantasy aspects of it are thoroughly enjoyable. It’s delightful to see and a great family experience or, just for the ‘little kid’ in all of us no matter what our age may be.
IMDB rated this movie as 6.7/10 based on 33,035 viewers.
