Martin Scorsese's movie HUGO was every bit as good as Brian Selznick's book THE INVENTION OF HUGO
CABRET that it was based on. The movie stayed very close to the book's plot, and it felt as if the book had come to life. 3D worked beautifully here, integrating with and enhancing unobtrusively, and was the best use of 3D I've seen.
The movie captured the sense wonder and determination, adventure and courage, loss and melancholy that the Harry Potter books and movies do, so fans of Harry Potter will certainly enjoy HUGO.
Fans of films and film history will also enjoy HUGO because of how Hugo's adventures intersect with the life and work of real-life film pioneer Georges Melies, whose vision of storytelling and visual effects still reverberate in today's movies. Ben Kingsley's portrayal of Melies was subtle and moving.
While this movie doesn't seem to have the mass-appeal of the Harry Potter franchise, I think older kids, teens and adults will really enjoy it.
