It was about half-way through that I thought to myself, "I love this movie." Each story covered its own genre well and they were all cut together beautifully. Actors in multiple roles could be jarring at times (Tom Hanks with a Cockney accent?) but it mostly worked. It does require the viewer to pay attention and think about what they're experiencing which isn't for everyone. It was definitely for me, though.

I went in expecting a sumptuous sight for the eyes and something thought provoking and was not disappointed. Great performances all around by a great cast each doing multiple roles. Some (SPOILER ALERT) like Hugo Weaving were precious. I have not read the book on which the movie was based, but I have already decided to look into it as well as the music score. The multiplex cinema we went to had the film in a small theatre and it was packed. I'm glad I used Fandango to purchase tickets in advance.

Cloud Atlas is an amazing film! The story is brilliant and time flies through this movie because it is so good. The make-up department should win awards for this one. Actilng is superb. Best film I've seen all year. Worth the money and worth seeing it on a big screen.

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.

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.
