Sad that the critic reviews seem to miss the mark. Sure, there are plenty of people I know who wouldn't "get it". Gratefully, I am not one of those people. I was taken to this movie by friends who were curious. I am so thankful to them that I didn't completely listen to the critical reviews. I found myself uttering "amazing, amazing" so often throughout. Love story, action film, sci-fi flick, metaphysical rumination, history and comedy were all touched upon with great care. I am someone who is fascinated by Lana W's journey and can see bits of her new found freedom in so many scenes. This movie will stay with me for years.

I loved everything about this movie. Spielberg is a genius. The cast, music, special effects, editing and costuming are awesome. It was a 3 hour movie and we did not fidget one bit or feel like we had been there that long. Finally, a cinema worth every cent of the admission price. Would love to see it again to absorb even more!
It has to be seen on the big screen.

The "Cloud Atlas" was one of the most epic movies I have seen in quite some time. The stories in the sextet were all very interesting and the various characters well developed and showed the actors depth playing numerous characters in each story. Tom Hanks, as usual, was excellent, as was Halle Berry. An extremely well crafted, if complicated tale of how love survives all conflict and tradgedy. I give it an A+. I see a lot of movies and I thoroughly enjoyed all 3 hours of it.

This story and motion picture is so timely in when we as a body of humans are in high need of waking up and realizing that we are all connected and that our causes effect everyone and ourselves in a very deep way.
I highly recommend this movie as theater going experience, especially if you want some inspiration to change your life path.

Boring. Oh yes, and depressing, but mainly boring. Incoherent too, but mainly boring.
