At times charming but at all times unfocused. It fails to be both family adventure and love letter to the history of film. It takes a while to get going and then decides to ditch its initial story anyway. I never felt the magic these kids were feeling when they were delving into classic cinema, all i felt was this was a muddled misfire. Cohen getting his leg stuck to a train for childish comedic effect and Melies' A Trip to the Moon just don't seem like they should be sharing the stage.

Long, slow, and underwhelming. The cinematography felt like a poor man's version of a Jean-Pierre Jeunet film and the plot can't decide what it wants to focus on. It's a lot of talking, which would be fine if the dialogue was better, and ends up trying to be an homage to the silent film era and the need for film preservation (two subjects kids love). If Scorsese's name wasn't attached I strongly believe this wouldn't be as well received.

It may be a detour for Scorsese, but it's also, surprisingly, the most autobiographical film he's ever made, and one of his most heartfelt as a result. Its moderate flaws (primarily structural) are easy to forgive because it's never less than charming or entertaining, and for any film geek out there, very touching as well. And the film's evocation of 1930s Paris is absolutely fantastic.

It works better as a drama than as a kids movie, but the mix is awkward. Might have been touching as a straight-up melodrama. Instead, it almost turns into a bio-pic meeting an ad for film preservation, leaving little screen time for plot and character. Don't get me wrong, 'Hugo' is pretty good. I just never got misty-eyed - or even slightly nostalgic. Maybe it's just that I'm not really a fan of Melies. This year's other silent movie tribute, 'The Artist', spoke much more to my love for cinema.

A sweet and charming movie, incorrectly marketed as an adventure/mystery when it's actually a love letter to early cinema. Kids might enjoy parts of it, I guess, but its true audience is film-loving adults.

I think it might be Martin's best aesthetic achievement post-Taxi Driver. I got teary-eyed during certain points of the film, not from any sort of sadness or melancholy it caused, but simply because of the sheer beauty I was witnessing on screen. The subject matter couldn't be closer to my heart, and the singular overarching metaphor that the film is based around is picturesque. It's simplicity feels refreshing rather than restraining.

The film tries to portray messages about the importance of film preservation, the search for purpose in life, and the transformative power of a child's innate curiosity. The pacing ends up seeming very sporadic in order to reconcile these disparate themes, with some awfully convenient plot devices connecting the pieces. The atmosphere was great, but the plot's inconsistency failed to keep me engrossed. Fuck 3D, which continues to be purely a Hollywood gimmick to drain audiences' wallets.

As a kid's adventure film it's passable, but nothing I would really think was special. As a love letter to film and storytelling in general, it's far better and very evocative. I legit had to hold back tears during one or two scenes. Great performances from Baron Cohen and Moretz, whose character was like a funnier Hermione Granger. Overall, though, the regular adventure bits dragged it down kind of a lot, and while it was charming the lack of any real stakes made it hard to care.

A balanced mix of solid acting for adults and fantastical, fun elements for the kids. Moretz and Butterfield are dynamic leads in a creative visual treat with gorgeous scenery. As an homage to the career of filmmaker George Melies and early cinema it's a treat to see many of the old images on the big screen, but there are moments where the film slows to make educational points and could cause disinterest in younger viewers. Still, a great family film and a must-see for lovers of movie history.

I know not everybody is a fan of this, but I do not care. The actors are all excellent, the visual effects and cinematography are beautiful, Scorsese's direction is still tight, the story adapts everything from the book almost perfectly. I found the editing and the score to be superb too. Everything is just done really well here. I think this is really solid family entertainment and a magical tribute to film. The book and the movie will always be favorites of mine.

Don't get me wrong, It does have some qualities (the cinematography, the art direction, somewhat charming characters, the personal agenda), but quite frankly, this is one of the poorest films in Scorseses career. The core character plot is too weak (it screams BAD adaptation), the main character's goal is too wake from the start. The film tries to make up for this by introducing other characters in the train station, but this is only done so half-heartedly as we never really get to know them.

While very moving at times, the story which takes some time to get going slowly moves to the background, and characters grow very little. I wish we had seen more of Melies, especially when he was working on his craft, and was left thinking perhaps his god daughter would have been the better protagonist. This film gets most of its credit from me for its message, though.

Despite its numerous flaws, a significant film, for me, if only because it celebrates Méliès' art, and-- by extension-- what I see as a cinematic heritage of dreams, of which Méliès is the great progenitor. But, in its own way, "Hugo" not only celebrates that heritage, but itself belongs to it.

Around the time Hugo came out, I was just starting to become interested in the movies. Watching the film really sealed the deal. I absolutely loved the characters, the visuals, the atmosphere and the story. Mostly, though, this movie has a special place in my heart for helping me to realize that the "magic" of movies was something I was really passionate about.

Fincher'dan sonra en fazla abartılan yönetmenler listesine ikinci sıradan giriş yapan Scorsese'yi tebrik ediyorum. Bu filmin tek artısı dümdüz amaçsız mafya filmleri (Goodfellas, The Irishman, Casino), sefa sonrası cefa filmleri (The Aviator, TWoWS, Raging Bull) dışında başka bir şey çekebildiğini göstermesi. Onun dışında saçma sapan bir çocuk filmi, dua etsin ki duygusal bi adamım.

In a year when The Artist is being mistakenly hailed as the quintessential ode to the cinematic era of years past for its blatant use of the silent film medium, Hugo seemed destined for second fiddle status. And that is a shame because in my opinion, Hugo, is the more effective, veritable homage to cinema and its transportive power. Slow start but once it hits its stride, it sweeps you up and never lets go.

An expensive-looking and critic-proof film; I have more interest in the happenings of the adults rather than the children, whose portion of this story (which it's unfortunately largely made up of) lacks engagement and tension. Not that the kids don't act well, it just feels like a detour from the real story -- about Georges Melies (wonderfully played by Ben Kingley).

Scorsese tries to do a ton of things with this film, and while they don't all fit together it's still an interesting, beautiful, moving, and entertaining picture. The love letter to silent cinema and Méliès is the strongest part of the overarching thematic thrust of using passion to find purpose and meaning in life. The rest of the stories lack the emotional center of that aspect, perhaps because they're less real, but still help tie things together.

A thoroughly middle-of-the-road family film wrapped around the most beautiful and lovingly crafted PSA about film preservation you will ever see. The film is definitely a visual treat and the recreations of Milies' early work should charm and entertain anyone who is interested in film history. Pretty much everything outside of Milies, while not necessarily poorly written, feels undercooked - Cohen, Lee, Mortimer, etc are wasted here.

Feels like something new. Like a moment in your childhood when you discovered what you want to do with your life, that thing you can always take a break and escape into, or some wondrous phenomenon you never even knew existed. And also the pain of being sick with experience; when nothing can seem new. It's a great story, has a just good enough/lackluster script, and is a fantastic experience.

Some clunkiness and schmaltz is more than made up for by a celebration of the magic of cinema that is also (in muted fashion, perhaps, that is, subtly) an investigation of the fabrication of dreams and its relation to the Unheimliche and to Spalanzani's (that is, Hoffmann's) Olimpia, and the relation of all this to the world's becoming a machine, such that behind the adoration of the cinematic fantastic can be detected hints of a coming global infernal. 3D at times impressive but distracting.

A very hot and cold movie - there were some parts that felt cliched and boring to me, and I never really got attached to Hugo himself. But when the story shifted to Méliès and his legacy it became completely enthralling. The passion infused into those scenes is infectious, and it really made me enjoy the movie a lot.

Another great Scorsese movie, but so unlike any of his other films. Every single shot looks like it was really well thought out. I didn't see it in 3D, but I feel as though this might have been enhanced by it, rather then it just getting pinned on for the extra box office. The movie feels very much like a fantasy, you just have to go with it. Some of the characters are stereotypes, but it is a kids movie after all. It is a very nostalgic look at early cinema which was fun.

At times too kid-centric to appeal wholeheartedly to adults and at other points it could have easily just been an adult-orientated biopic of Melies (these were my favorite part of the film). It's this shift, and the overstuffed plot, that drag the film down ultimately. It's way too long, and the comic stuff is done well but ultimately it just failed to grab me.

Begins as an aimless children's fable, with the (random) loss of a parent, a secret robot and a heart shaped key. All this is abandoned halfway through, and 'Hugo' blossoms as a love letter to cinema, marred by trying to double as 'film school for kids'. There's a great movie hidden in the material, but Scorsese keeps piling on homages, that does little for the overall emotional impact, but test the viewer's bladder control. It is a poorly directed mess, really.

It was like two films in one. The first, about the boy and his automaton, was completely boring and lacked any emotional depth. The second, about the magic and wonder of early filmmaking was good, but still completely overrated by movie lovers. It seems that any movie about movies can bank on a favorable critical reception simply because it is about a subject all critics are necessarily interested in.

If you prepare a perfect steak, and serve it in an overpowering sauce, is it still a perfect steak? Hugo is 90 minutes of near perfection, spoiled by (in the main) 30 mins of Cohen doing an impression of the Gendarme from "'Allo 'Allo" and it is a cameo as out of place and unecessary as it is embarrassing. Typical scorsese, who seems to equate the quality of the film with its length. Hugo suffers from this and the exposition towards the end, but is, at its core, a wonderful fairytale

At first glance it appears to be a children's tale entwined with some fantasy elements. However it reveals itself as a deeply layered film full of carefully crafted homages. It's a beautiful love letter to the wonderment of film making by Scorsese. The plot backdrop is to showcase Melies who is in many ways a character based off of Scorsese's own passion. This is pure joyous escapism from a director who is also a film buff. A bit saccharine for a Scorsese film but a charming story non the less.

As with many commenters here, Hugo seemed to me a little inconsistent with awkward comedic moments and distracting structural issues. The core ideas though breathed well in spite of that.

Suffers from a totally misguided ad campaign marketing it as a children's film (because kids really care about the birth of cinema?).

With one word:Overwhelming! And I'm really happy to see Kingsley back on the screen in a good movie (as far as i remember he made a movie with the greatest looser of all time Uwe Boll) A movie, that celebrates the beginning of cinema since the Lumiere brothers invented the movie. And Scorsese shows once again, that he has many facettes and do not stuck to any.specific genre. But the trailer is misleading. Hugo Cabret is not a funny movie for kiddoes. It's a melancholic fantasy journey!

While I by no means consider 'Hugo' a masterpiece I do find Scorsese's love of cinema rather heart warming and feel sympathetic towards his urge to educate the public on the matter through his very public love affair with movies. I'm not sure the choice to make this an all out childrens movie was the right one since it kind of ends up between two chairs. It's charm does not deny itself however, and i find it a nice gesture to lend an old and long gone director a voice.

Set in Paris in the 30s, Hugo tells the story of an orphan boy and a long-forgotten film maker, and how their unlikely friendship reveals secrets from the past and hope for the future. Scorcese's homage to film making, "Hugo" is easily his most heartfelt and personal work, a visually stunning and enchanting film that reinvigorates the idea that great art can, indeed, elevate the spirit.

Hugo is a fantastic family film that doesn't pander to the youngest audience, but continues to be accessible to all audiences. Whether it be for its gorgeous presentation, interesting characters, love for the movies, or well-told story, everyone can find a reason to watch Hugo, even if it does move slowly. It's never boring, but it is more of a slow burn. It is absolutely something that should be watched, regardless of your fascination with film history; Hugo might make you to change your mind.

I'm guessing this film has been largely ignored by family audiences because at heart it isn't a family film. This is Martin Scorsese's love letter to movies, and he blends a fantastic and imaginative narrative together with some of the most breathtaking visuals and the best feature film 3D usage to date. I didn't love 'Hugo' as much as I adored and admired it. It's a rare kind of a film: grand and personal all at once, indelibly layered, and designed for film enthusiasts.

Too beautiful to ever regret seeing, the film is unfortunately lacking. Leisurely can be a good thing but in this case it just didn't have enough in it to justify being as long as it did. Butterfield's not strong enough to carry the slow story, and I hated Moretz's character, extraordinarily callous, describing wandering through her friend's 'home' in the station as an 'adventure' and ignoring his reality of hunger and want. The adult stories are what's worth watching: sweet & beautiful.

Contrary to the deceptive advertising, this is not a fantasy at all; it is entirely grounded in reality. Moretz is terribly miscast here and drags down much of the film. It's as if the whole budget went to cinematography and marketing, with hardly any left for writing and acting. Extremely weak story and script, irrelevant characters with pointless side-plots, all blended into a slow, dull mess. Even the orphan is underdeveloped. Basically this is film-makers congratulating themselves.

The film started slow and I was wondering where it was going when all the threads started coming together. Sacha Baron Cohen was mesmorising as the station security officer. His part was played in a restrained way that left you wanting more every time he was on the screen. The cinematography is first class. The 3D is used to terrific effect, particularly with the clock work mechanisms and the trains. I'm not going to try and explain the plot other than to say it draws you in and leaves you thin

It feels somewhat like Scorsese was limited by making a family film as opposed to his usual type of film (crime/period drama). Hugo was pretty original and mostly held my attention, but the payoffs to the various secrets held by the characters in the film were not as satisfying as the film built them up to be. With those being said, I still enjoyed the movie and would recommend it, but don't go in expecting to see an all-time masterpiece.

Spectacular visuals, makes it very easy to immerse yourself in the film. Has some very touching moments when it's just about Hugo and Isabelle. Excellent acting. Sacha Baron Cohen may feel a little out of place at times, but is funny and ends up being a nice addition. Where the first part of the film is about Hugo, Ben Kingsley's (great performance) character suddenly takes the spotlight for the rest of the film. Still definitely good, but I would have liked to see more of Hugo & Isabelle.

Visually engaging like so few films have been this year. It's a beautiful picture, and it's hard not to get caught up in the story as well, even if it gets off to a rocky start. Scorsese has made a wonderful film for his fellow cinephiles, and draws terrific performances from all -- but especially Ben Kingsley. It's somewhat over-populated, but the train station's cast of characters are but players in Scorsese's own silent pictures -- their vignettes would play perfectly without sound. Charmed.

Even though quite a bit naive, Scorsese's love for cinema shines through at every second of this lovely movie. Simple but magical.

Having recently become fascinated by the films of Georges Melies, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this film is actually about him. Beautifully filmed and wonderfully acted, it runs the gamut from charming, to thought-provoking, to comical.

For being as unfocused as it was, I actually enjoyed Hugo more than I thought I would. This is mostly because I couldn't wipe the shit eating grin off of my face with all of the parts regarding historical film. Without that element of the story (and it should've been more), it would've been a thoroughly mediocre film.

The acting of the kids got on my nerves a lot of times, so that was very distracting. I did like the last part, about Melies, but the bits before that didn't interest me that much. Was fun to see the process of making such a film, with those costumes and sets (even though that wasn't real, duh).

14 aralik 2011, istinye park, kaan kivanc ile & scorsese, 3D'yi daha once gormedigim sekilde etkin kullanarak ustaligi ile seyirlik bir masal ortaya koymus. Son teknolajiden yararlanan gunumuz hollywood'u, sinemanin ilk donemlerinde mucizeler yaratan george melies'in hikayesini anlatiyor. Keske ilk yarisi, ikinci yarisi kadar surukleyici olabilseydi- asil hikayeye girebilseydi. Yine de kararkterlerin derinligi acisindan ilk yari onemliydi. Karakterler cok iyi yaratilmis. Cocugun oyunculugu kotu.

It is a joy to see Scorsese revive and recreate Melies. This movie is light on story but heavy on heart, and I don't really dare predict whether or not time will be kind to it. I, for my part, believe it to be heartfelt and worthwhile.

"What makes this Scorsese's best film since The Age of Innocence is the curious view he takes of both this boy and the sea of artifice in which he's set adrift." - Phil Coldiron

Everything this film has to offer on the subject of film history is downright amazing, but the whole let's-catch-the-orphan subplot was a bit of a tedium in my eyes. Superb art direction and cinematography, but it was lacking in some areas for me. I'm going to stick out like a sore thumb now and announce that I thought the use of 3D was no better than decent, and that I suspect people liked the 3D in this as much as they did just because of how shit 9/10 3D-productions are.
