Unless you come high on the drug the director and writer, of this movie, were than you will think its awesome, come sober and you will be saying the same thing I am. Don't go!!! HUGE WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME!!!!!
I hate movies that aren't movies, but more like YouTube short chips and I hate movies that can't stay in one scene or one year for that matter!

Wow... I thought this movie had a LOT of depth. I'm still certain there are aspects of this movie that I have, as of yet, not even begun to fathom. This movie makes for excellent discussion and I enjoyed it so much that I purchased the book and hope that I will be able to trudge through the 500+ pages therein. I will certainly be purchasing this movie for my shelf someday.

Absolutely incredible film, top notch production value on an independent film. The story is truly a deep and inspiring tale, that reminds us of out impact we make.
While confusing during the first half of the film, things begin to pull together in the second half. I found myself glued to the TV as learned more about the relationships and connections that are made.
Very well done, highly recommend

Unique story line, good acting, love how they intertwine, but too slow in parts. I almost wish it didn't intertwine so we could see all of one story then another. Stay for the credits...very cool reveal of who played what characters that will surprise you. :)

Cloud Atlas: Talk about "Bait and Switch"! While those behind production of this movie and their adoring critics claim it's a new and daring look at life (past, present and future) with probing questions about karma and reincarnation, don't believe it for a second!!! The only question I (and most of those leaving the theater near me) wanted to know the answer to was: 'How can I ever recover those three hours out of my life?'
Virtually the entire "plot" (and using that term loosely) was nothing more than rehashed, cut and paste snippets from successful films including: Blade Runner, Star Wars, Soylent Green (and they had the gall to mention it in one of the scenes!), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Cocoon, Amazing Grace, Silkwood, The China Syndrome, Brokeback Mountain, with a bit of Braveheart thrown in the mix. To say this movie was bad, would be a complete understatement. Why can't mainstream Hollywood treat their audience with the intelligence of a drama like, "Breaking Bad?"
