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 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: 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.
One of the few movies that all agree is of its greatness...

Excerpt: My girlfriend and I watched it last night. I had been waiting a while to watch this because I had missed it at the theaters. Anyway, my girlfriend and I enjoy watching 3D movies very much and especially when they are very good quality.
Excerpt: The experience of watching HUGO at home on my Sony 55HX729 was quite enjoyable with one issue: CROSSTALK. I was putting the blame on my TV which normally doesn't exhibit much cross talk. I'm now understanding how content based crosstalk can be.
Excerpt: From the original revue I was expecting lots of ghosting but on a good plasma display it is not that bad. I found the 3D to be some of the most engaging I seen since Avatar. If you watch enough 3D you will find ghosting in any movie, even at the theater.
Excerpt: im not going to make a lengthy review, i just wanted to let you guys know that the 3D is really good. best 3D i have seen since avatar. unfortunately their is ghosting in a fair amount of the scenes, but i would still rather watch the 3D version then the 2D
