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.

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!!!

just a pretentious piece of crap.
1 you cant understand a word the actors are speaking
2.even if you could it makes no sense
3There are 100's if not 1,000's of great S-F novels that would make great movies,but Holl wood pays rotten people who think they are great but they are (they Think) really clever to write this crap.

Sad that the critic reviews seem to miss the mark. Sure, there are plenty of people I know who wouldn't "get it". Gratefully, I am not one of those people. I was taken to this movie by friends who were curious. I am so thankful to them that I didn't completely listen to the critical reviews. I found myself uttering "amazing, amazing" so often throughout. Love story, action film, sci-fi flick, metaphysical rumination, history and comedy were all touched upon with great care. I am someone who is fascinated by Lana W's journey and can see bits of her new found freedom in so many scenes. This movie will stay with me for years.
