Overall the film was worth seeing. Granted you had to pay attention through out the entire film to connect the characters and piece together the message -- not a tremendous challenge.
Granted the dialogue of the future timeline was terrible corny, but the characters made it worthwhile. Watching how characters did or did not develop throughout the time lines was interesting and picking out each point of change and then reflecting on it afterward was the fun part.
The time jumps can get a bit much, but in the end they reconcile comfortably.

We picked this movie because was the one with an OK time for Saturday afternoon. We didn't expect much, and the first 30 minutes of the movie kind of supported our low expectations. But then...the stories unfold, the red tread get clear and .... 3 hours went by so fast! Great movie, the end will let you thinking a lot!

I'm a sci-fi fan so that was why I wanted to see Cloud Atlas. But the film was so much more!
It was an intricately-woven story line involving the same talented actors playing different roles over hundreds of years and across the earth. I plan to see it again to savor the many subtle, creative twists and turns of story-line and director's handling.

The movie was too disjointed. Thought about leaving one hour in but stuck it out. Felt like I wasted 3 hrs of my day. Should have went to see something else.

One of the Worst Movies I have seen. Not worth of being a B movie.
Not for kids or anyone at any age. Do not waste your money.
Sex, gay situations, killings, scenes did not do anything for the movie.
Could not follow the story. Jumps from one century to another and back again.
Plot? What Plot. They forgot to put that in.
Movies should be for entertainment. Should have a beginning, body and an ending.
I won't give the ending away because there isn't any.
Some parts I could not understand what their saying.
Looks like they cramed a bunch of scenes together to produce a film.
Tried really hard to sit through almost 3 hours. After 2.5hrs I could not take it anymore and walked out.
I believe that if someone in not satisfied with the film they should get a full refund. If enough people could get there money back maybe directors would produce better films.
