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.
Summary: Deserves all the Oscars it won as it was brilliant in both visuals and sound. Martin Scorsese proves he can make a family film as compelling as his crime dramas. The acting was top notch from young and old alike and the story really did capture that magic of movies.
Summary: Not the whimsical adventure it's made out to be, but a very fine film. A family movie that will probably only appeal to kids no younger than 10. It's a visual treat, with a beautifully cinematic approach to storytelling.
Excerpt: Hugo Cabret is a widowed kid who steals to survive. The automaton is being fixed by Hugo, which was his father's last project. Georges Melies is a toy store owner who notices the talents of Hugo. The film reminded me much of Metropolis and Cinema Paradiso in a way.
Excerpt: The story is the best part of this movie. The trailers made it look pretty awful but due to the massive amounts of positive reviews and my affection for Scorsese, I chose to see it. The Story: Again, the best part.
Conclusion: This film should be scored based on your perception. It is very well made and has lovely visuals, however the packaging and tag line are misleading. This is not a wildly enchanting and magical adventure film for kids.
Conclusion: I found this film a bit strange. It was very intriguing throughout the story but I felt you were going to find out this great mystery at the end, when in fact the ending was a bit flat. I left the cinema thinking "is that it ?" Quite surprised at the other positive reviews.
Summary: Gillar man att se filmer med en gnutta magi, en gnutta feel good och en gnutta vackert foto så är denna film ett tips. Håller väl också med föregående talare om att den kan vara lite långdragen emellanåt, men helt klart sevärd.
