I loved this film. I know it's received mixed reviews, but I found it enchanting.
Yes the color seems a bit too enhanced at times, but I love all things French.
I hadn't read anything when I was invited to see the film, so I had no idea what it was going to be. So it goes along very much like a children's film, but then goes into this most delightful homage to early film. And then the story really starts to make sense.
The story plays out much like a clock work puzzle and the end is what makes all the parts make sense.
I really enjoyed it. And again if you love all things French, as I do, you never get tired of spending a couple hours in France, even if it's only in a movie theater.
It is a bit strange that all the French have British accents, but that's typical of British films... even ones made by American's I guess.
This is entertainment the whole family can enjoy.
Cheers and Blessings, Max Rainet.

Great movie, in either 2-D or 3-D.
Martin Scorsese has done something wonderful here. He has created a film classic like the Wizard of Oz that shares his love and respect for the dawn of movies that reveals even more on repeated viewings. It is the story of Hugo Cabret, a young boy abandoned in life, trying to survive living in a Paris railway station and his relationship with George Melies (the famous silent film pioneer)now down on his luck owning a toy booth there. This is a film where 3D is finally an essential part. You are not hammered with special effects. From the subtle falling snowflakes to the giant gear mechanisms of the station, the 3D creates a palpable environment. Sir Ben Kingsley is superb as Melies; you can feel his torment! Asa Butterfield is excellent as Hugo. Even Sacha Baron Cohen rises to the occasion as the station manager. The other cast members are uniformly excellent (kudos to Christopher Lee's understated performance). This is a rare and special film. A MUST HAVE!
"Hugo" is brilliant! This is how the story goes: Hugo is a wily and resourceful boy whose quest to unlock a secret left to him by his father will transform him and all those around him, and reveal a safe and loving place he can call home. This is a terrific and well-done, well-made movie that is entertaining and well-crafted. This movie will keep your mind thinking throughout the movie. A movie that is a terrific change of pace.
Highly, highly recommended for anyone who enjoys movies, and an absolute must-see for anyone who loves movies and what they mean to us.
Hugo is a wonderful movie with amazing visual effects. It is an adventurous and inspiring movie the whole family can watch together. All of the actors do a great job and the settings in Paris are very well done. Well worth the price to add this movie to your collection.
