I saw this movie yesterday and was mesmerized by it. I believe in the premise that everything is connected and that we live many lives on this Earth so I found it fascinating! It was visually stunning. At 2hr. 45 min. and 3 directors it was an epic. I plan on seeing it again at an IMAX theater because I am sure there are a couple things I didn't quite pick up on and want to examine closer. It was intriguing. I know many reviewers have also mentioned wanting to see it a 2nd time - which is good, it'll make up for the fundamentalist religious types that refuse to open their minds.

The film I like I saw the preview I interested in seeing the film. The talented actors & actresses, the cinematography, and writing was amazing. The plot was very interesting. Would I recommended other to see the film. Be warn children ages 1 to 17 should not seeing. Also be aware of the profanity, racist slurs, and nudity.I enjoy the movies I'm looking to see it again.

Despite what some people say about the film being flawed or corny- it is not. I believe this film will greatly echo with the ones that believe in the inter-connections of people and our actions and those with a philosophical mind-set. To me, I would compare Cloud Atlas to a bottle of expensive perfume in the way that; like the perfume that consists of many interesting and complex aromatic notes to make up a bottle of fine fragrance that compels us to smell and re-smell; so too, is Cloud Atlas consisted of interesting and beautiful layers of meanings, ideas, and stories that invites the viewer to watch and re-watch to better grasp its beauty and, at the same time, its complex yet simple story.
Cloud Atlas pushes the boundaries of your typical formulaic Hollywood films and provides Drama, Action, Sci-Fi, Romance, Comedy-what have you, into one movie and it does so very well. I'm above satisfactory with this film and I hope you, too, will find it incredible.

Visually stunning movie with some really big names. Unfortunately my friends and I stopped trying to follow the plot lines after the first hour and just sat back and enjoyed the action for the next 2 hours. We were talking about the movie afterwards for a good hour trying to figure out how the stories were connected, the characters each actor played, which soul was which, etc (with a little help from the wiki summary of the book). Even though the movie had to leave certain parts out, I think the final piece was well worth seeing in theaters. This movie really is one of those that you have to see a number of times to fully "get" so if that's not your cup of tea, then I guess this movie will leave you scratching your head. Go see this with friends so you can enjoy discussing it afterwards!

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!
