What a shame Cloud Atlas didn't do well in North America. What a fantastic film! Go out and watch it while you still can. Given its scale, budget ... flop, there may not be another like it for a long time - at least not from a US studio, and let's face it, only US studios spend $100 million on movies.
There is never a point when you are scratching your head. It has great pace and you're constantly glued to the plot. Definitely one of the best films of the year!!

So other than having actors play different parts, which didn't advance the story or concept, this was not a movie about cosmic connections. Just six stories and not necessarily that interesting.

I enjoyed the show more than I thought I would. Much of it is very entertaining. But after 2 hours I found my patience waning. I went with someone that had read the book and she enjoyed both - so maybe reading the book ahead of time is a good idea.

The most powerful statement I can make is people applauded at the end of the movie. I have seen it twice already. I might see it agin. Yes, its that interesting

What a rambling wreck, I hang my head for the waste of good actors on this edifice to multi-story plots gone wrong. Could they have done better with the story, doubtful. If it was a book first maybe it was a good read, but probably one of those books best left untouched by cinema. I give it 5 stars on the money waster scale.
