Summary: A movie about the silent film industry with an automaton set in a train station? Sounds good doesn't it. This was a movie with potential, but it fell short so much so that I'm not going to waste my time giving it a detailed, complete critique.
A HUGO Disappointment - Melies made better movies than this
4 December 2011
Summary: I was frankly stunned at how BAD this movie is. The 3D is very well done, but like all the clockwork and machines the movie revels in, "Hugo" is technically brilliant, moves like an elegant automaton, and has NO heart or soul. It is dead and hollow within.
Conclusion: worst film ever put into a blu ray player....... wanted to switch it off after 20 minutes, however the other half continued to watch it BIG mistake... film looks great in 3D pity about the lack of story.
