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. :)

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.

I loved everything about this movie. Spielberg is a genius. The cast, music, special effects, editing and costuming are awesome. It was a 3 hour movie and we did not fidget one bit or feel like we had been there that long. Finally, a cinema worth every cent of the admission price. Would love to see it again to absorb even more!
It has to be seen on the big screen.

Liked this movie, it was different and thought provoking. Got confused at the first, but it came together for me at the end. I will need to watch this movie again, to fully understand all the things that happened.

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!!!
