  • Summary: A 12-year-old orphan living in the walls of a Paris train station circa 1930 must unravel a mystery involving his late father and a robot. Martin Scorsese directing a kids movie could fall on it's face but the movie works so well that movie is great.

  • Excerpt: So here's the thing: I may be one of the few people who gets what Hugo is really about and still hates it. Actually, let me rephrase: I greatly dislike the characters. Before I get into that, allow me to back up everything I like and love about the movie. The cinematography is something to commend beyond an Academy Award. Scorsese makes his tone and theme very clear given the script and does some of his best direction with it.

"Hugo" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo, FilmCrave
26 July 2013
  • Excerpt: A young orphan unlocks the secret to the life of a bitter old toy vendor when he tries to steal from his shop. Martin Scorsese tries his very best to ape Jean-Pierre Jeunet in this sickly-sweet homage to the life and work of cinema pioneer Georges Méliès which despite its creative use of 3D and CGI effects and potentially interesting subject matter, just did not work for me.

Artful, bold and beautiful film

  • Excerpt: Hugo is a film, that is intended to recognise a great film maker, Georges Milies, a French illusionist turned film maker. His visions and an art of drawing pics and incorporating them into films, were trend base for current use of special effects. The effective screenplay from Logan, and craft piece direction from Scorsese is brilliant. Ben Kingsley is terrific as Milies. A small boy Hugo Cabret played by Butterfield is working hard to discover his father’s secret.

  • Summary: Omg i can't remember being this bored before during a film. Really didnt expect this from director Scorcese...nuff said!! Scorcese has about 3-4 different films in my top 20 list of all time that's why i was shocked. Even more shocked that Sacha Baron Cohen signed on to do this film as i have so much respect for him comedy wise! Anyhow my kids all enjoyed it and i guess that was Scorcese's target audience in the first place.

Magical!!!

Gabe, FilmCrave

  • Excerpt: A truly magical movie! Going into this I had no expectations at all, in fact I knew absolutely nothing about this film. I think this gets the award for my surprise film of 2011. It was fantastic and it just proves the Martin Scorcese is one of the greatest directors of this time or any time. He is a master of his craft. I love the realization on the children's faces when they realize who Isabelle's (Chloe Grace Moretz) Godfather really is.
