I do agree with Travis that most of these reviews seem very simple minded and out of touch.

Please people,ignore these critics and see this movie on the big screen. It is cinematic genius that will be a classic is the same way the Matrix is. It has a depth and beauty told in an entertaining and breathtakingly beautiful fashion. I was getting food before going in and a Father and his early teen son both said I was in for a cinematic treat. They were both right. It is easily my movie of the year and Oscar choice, and I haven't been moved by the story and message in this way likely since Slumdog Millionaire.

One thing,don't try to follow it,enjoy and let it lead you and unfold as it needs to and all will be clear.

Liam Lacey isn't "retarded" nor is his review "simple minded and out of touch", although some of the comments about his review meet that standard. His review is very thoughtful. Some of you just don't agree with him; get over it.

Personally, I was hoping for much better from "Cloud Atlas" than the TV movie quality production it turned out to be.

Awww C'mon! Does a negative review on a worderfull movie makes anyone a better critic?!This movie is as poignant as it is ambitious... and how is that a negative trade?

I would agree with ambitious, like a lot of the Wachowski's work. Muddled crap is another word that comes to mind when watching Cloud Atlas.

Since when did The Globe and Mail start being inept? How can a critic use the word felicitous at the same time complaining about the dark nebula of self-importance - does the reviewer not see the irony of his own critique? Jesus wept! This movie is fantastic is so many ways, but not if you like your movies spoon fed, nor if you don't like other people so much. This movie is symbolic, so you kinda have to have that going in...
