Cloud Atlas took me way out beyond the box, the building and the world. It's a movie that you want to see again after a week or so of processing. It's not for those who need to be spoon fed ideas, as it challenges one to be open to possibilities to follow the quantum jumps. I hope this movie is the start of a trend, loved it.

I was so excited to see this movie, because the maker of the matrix and the terrific cast.The movie was very confusing, the spend too much time in the simple things and none time to explain the real deal. The idea is carry on with the emotion with the special effects and back in forth with the past and the future. Entertainment not recommended .

I went in expecting a sumptuous sight for the eyes and something thought provoking and was not disappointed. Great performances all around by a great cast each doing multiple roles. Some (SPOILER ALERT) like Hugo Weaving were precious. I have not read the book on which the movie was based, but I have already decided to look into it as well as the music score. The multiplex cinema we went to had the film in a small theatre and it was packed. I'm glad I used Fandango to purchase tickets in advance.

Cloud Atlas tells six seperate seemingly unrelated stories and then tries to tie them all together at the end as one universal story of reincarnation and karma. I personally think Cloud Atlas is a mess because there is really no cohesive plot or character development to speak of. I can deal without one or the other, but not both.
Cloud Atlas jumps from timeline to timeline too quickly without letting the viewers get a feel for the characters or the storyline. After about 30 minutes in, I thought that it was really going to hard sitting through this for nearly three hours. There were some moments in this film that I thought were cringe worthy, like in the future timeline where Tom Hanks & Hallie Berry speak gibberish throughout their scenes.
So there you have it. While I think the idea of Cloud Atlas is intriguing, the actual movie is not. I definitely don't recommend Cloud Atlas.

Good movie. I'll admitt i was confused at 1st but as i watched i caught on to what was actually going on.thats what i noticed alot of the bad reviews were about. I'm into the past live thing. I truely believe. I thinkTom Hanks played a very good part as did Halley Barry.
Also it is a movie i need to buy on dvd when it comes out and watch it alone so i can see what i missed in the r theatre and understand fully. As I'm sure alot of ppl might feel the same.
I say go if you like this kind of thingbut go with someonethat doesnt talk during movies sou can pay attention. I never once was bored or tookmy eyes off u e screenm it was great i was totally into it.
