Nate and I saw Tomorrowland last week, and left pleasantly surprised. While it was kind of a generic kids’ sci-fi flick, the acting was top-notch and the message (though completely obtuse) was sweet.
But can you take your younger kids? The movie’s family-friendly nature was kind of marred by a high body count. While none of the deaths were gory (the robots in the movie instantly vaporized their targets) there was a lot of fighting, and a lot of death, including the sad death of a significant character (and Nate would like to me point out that there was disproportionate amount of French people deaths). Robots shot at and killed police officers, and several Robots were decapitated. There was a lot of hand-to-hand fighting, and the main characters are constantly in peril.
There was a bit of bad language, mostly of the hell and damn variety, and a couple of incomplete “Son of a…!”. No drug use, there was no sex, there a bit of teenage rebellion, and some unsafe behaviors that led to the protagonist briefly getting locked up in a jail cell.
I would say that this movie is probably for the average kid age 10 and up, younger if they are not super-sensitive.
