Cloud Atlas is an amazing film! The story is brilliant and time flies through this movie because it is so good. The make-up department should win awards for this one. Actilng is superb. Best film I've seen all year. Worth the money and worth seeing it on a big screen.

This story and motion picture is so timely in when we as a body of humans are in high need of waking up and realizing that we are all connected and that our causes effect everyone and ourselves in a very deep way.
I highly recommend this movie as theater going experience, especially if you want some inspiration to change your life path.

I wanted to be there ... and I felt like I was!
Didn't realize it was 3 hours long til I arrived to this website to add my positive rating
The book didn't get such good reviews, but this movie is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The casting, acting, cinematography, music, ... are superb!
If the idea of reincarnation finds you fearful, and believe me when I say I am 100% Christian, look beyond your fear and just understand how we are all connected. Think why we were put on this earth, why we were born into the families we were, how our spirit is different than our body/personality/values.
Also in this movie is a "Stick it to da' man!" which is always good fodder.
I say GO GO GO! Can't wait for the DVD!!!!

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.
