Summary: Wonderful family story with intriguing mystery. The visuals are incredibly detailed of 1920's France. Johnny Depp produces and you will find him in the film too. Great child actors and while you are watching pick out the adults you know from other great films! Loved it! Timeless!
Pros: Engaging Characters, Entertaining, Great Cinematography
Excerpt: I have no idea what the formal reviewer meant with regard to cross talk. I experienced no cross talk on my LG passive set. The film is beautifully rendered from start to finish. The 3D is integral, I think, to the experience. From beginning to end, the movie is pure cinema, and expertly crafted.
Excerpt: Martin Scorsese's fantastic adaptation of the novel comes to live in blu-ray. This transfer (as far as video and audio quality goes) are reference quality. Extras didn't blow me away but they are sufficient.
Excerpt: Martin Scorsese created the world of Hugo with 3D in mind from the ground up. The only way you can really experience Hugo in the way he wanted you to is in 3D. There are 3D movies that you could pass on because maybe you see 3D as only a gimmick. There is no gimmick here.
Excerpt: Martin Scorsese is known for his surreal and potent crime dramas like ‘Goodfellas’, ‘Casino’ and ‘The Departed’ to name a few. He had dived deep into some intense character-dramas like ‘Shutter Island’, ‘Cape Fear’ and ‘Taxi Driver’.
No matter how old you are... there's no denying it

Excerpt: Three years ago I read the book and I thought it would make a decent movie. A "decent" movie. Well, I was wrong without a doubt. I rented this movie on blu-ray and it was spectacular. There's nothing better than a really good story and outstanding picture quality (along with good CGI).
Excerpt: Hugo, our main character, forced to be living and surviving as orphan all by himself in what seems Le Guare de L'Est in Paris. But he won't be alone for long. There are good people accompanying him in his kind of David Copperfield-adventure.
Excerpt: Just finished watching Hugo for the first time, and WOW! It is truly a 3D photography masterpiece that should be enjoyed by every 3D enthusiast out there. The 3D is visually strong, and a large portion of the foreground is usually set in negative parallax.
