I wanted to be there ... and I felt like I was! Didn't realize it was 3 hours long til I arrived to this website to add my positive rating The book didn't get such good reviews, but this movie is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The casting, acting, cinematography, music, ... are superb! If the idea of reincarnation finds you fearful, and believe me when I say I am 100% Christian, look beyond your fear and just understand how we are all connected. Think why we were put on this earth, why we were born into the families we were, how our spirit is different than our body/personality/values. Also in this movie is a "Stick it to da' man!" which is always good fodder. I say GO GO GO! Can't wait for the DVD!!!!

GIVES THE AUDIENCE AN IMAGINATIVE TALE , WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION.

What a remarkable surprise, entering with massive trepidation, realizing after fifteen minutes that "I really liked it"... "Cloud Atlas", (referring to a symphony composed as the film progresses ) is based upon the novel by David Mitchell, directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski ("The Matrix"); it is elegant, beautiful, lyrical, metaphorical, comical, confusing and confounding; a feast for the imagination; my best advice is to let "Cloud Atlas" imprison your mind's eye, take reign and gallop with one of the most ambitious, compelling stories in recent film. Confusion eventually morphs into understanding as we watch a myriad of talented actors assume various personages, gender changes, good/evil depictions through three disparate eras... THREE & 1/2 STARS!!! ***For full review please visit peneflix(dot)com!!!

just a pretentious piece of crap. 1 you cant understand a word the actors are speaking 2.even if you could it makes no sense 3There are 100's if not 1,000's of great S-F novels that would make great movies,but Holl wood pays rotten people who think they are great but they are (they Think) really clever to write this crap.

Complete waste of 3 hours

By salterjk

Absolutely disconnected movie supposedly trying to connect people through ages and different lives. It failed, horribly. I spent the entire movie trying to understand what was going on and find some sort of plot, any kind of plot. About two hours in I was completely flabbergasted and irritated. I figured since I put so much time into it I might as well find out how they tie it all together only to find out they don't and I had just wasted three hours of my life. Save yourself! Run away from this movie!

Beautiful Storytelling

By Mousedancing
Written October 27, 2012
It takes a little while to get into each of the revolving story lines due to the constant changing between each, but once you get enough of each story to get involved, it's like watching several movies at one time that have subtle overlaps with each other. Each mini-movie is very different, so whether you're a fan of crime dramas, epic buddy movies, love stories, or comedies there is something here for everyone and even more if you love a great story no matter how it's told. It was great seeing all the actors play so many different parts. One downside is that it seemed that we didn't get to see all of the stories..like some of the details were cut...so a bit of the final message impact was missing - but an epic thought provoking movie none the less, and beautifully weaved together.
