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!!!

I loved Cloud Atlas. It was visually stunning and the plot was engaging. Contrary to many complaints that the vignette style story telling was distracting, I found it to be refreshing. The cast did an excellent job, and I am so glad to have seen this in the theatre.

Book Schmook, Go See This

I haven't read the book bkz friends say it's difficult to follow and the rewards are doubtful. Why see the movie then? Wasn't planning on it until a friend--who has read the book--suggested we go. Monday night, nothing else going on so yeah i went. Those expensive movie hot dogs are tasty. Dude, I was blown a-way. The movie is like a weird trip, with all these stories starting and stopping and continuing and bumping into each other on the way to the conclusion and a Message. I liked the Message but won't tell you what it is bkz that would be distilling the liquor down to like not even a taste. So, am damn glad I went out on a Monday night and saw this flick I had no interest in. And yeah the hot dog was good.

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