The Patriot Ledger

It's kind of fascinating to watch a vaunted Oscar quartet embarrass itself under the delusion that it's communicating something IMPORTANT!

It would be an excellent advertisement for you to read the book, if you hadn't just ruined it by watching the movie.

Daily Star

If you are going to baffle an audience for nearly three hours, you'd better make sure you have a damn good pay-off. But like the last two Matrix films, this peters out into embarrassing hippy drivel about reincarnation and cosmic interconnectedness.

Toledo Blade

Cloud Atlas ... is most likely to suffer by its own technological hand, as today's CGI effects become dated relics, and with a finale that doesn't so much reward audiences as it does offer them relief that their trial of patience is over.

October 26, 2012

The Wachowskis' monumentally ambitious sci-fi time-hopper demands a superhuman level of dedication and patience but the payoff isn't worth the labor required to endure its nearly three-hour runtime.

FilmDrunk a three-hour, constantly shifting contradiction. You want to give it credit for all its dazzling imagery, but almost every actual idea it presents it eventually contradicts or leaves incomplete.

I was confused because I didn't know which story linked to which. Maybe I'm the dummy, but it felt like a mess. A sloppy soup that was good at first but became way too much to handle.

Tom Tykwer and Andy and Lana Wachowski wanted to make a movie unlike any other, and they certainly did: Cloud Atlas is a unique and totally unparalleled disaster.

What was ornate on the page becomes doggerel in translation.

Time Out Chicago

Basically a three-hour montage, Cloud Atlas neutralizes involvement in its dovetailing dramas by treating every character as a point in some quasi-spiritual game of connect-the-dots.

Film Comment Magazine

Like a fitted coat worn by someone it wasn't tailored for, parts of Cloud Atlas bulge out, overstretched, begging for more material, while other sections hang laughably loose.

It is hard to think of another film in recent memory in which the accumulation of so much talent has rendered so little.

This must have sounded great at some point, but it's really terrible to watch.

The Standard

A scattershot film that courageously tries to incorporate as much of the novel as possible, only to find it doesn't translate well from the page.

The Washingtonian

A gorgeously shot package that blends the past, present, and future into diverse, lushly imagined realities that at least manage the task of feeling like they're from a single work. If only that work actually succeeded in fulfilling its lofty aspirations.

Unlike anything you've ever seen and probably ever will see again... [but] it's also bloated and incredibly self-indulgent.

There's so much flash and grandeur in Cloud Atlas that it's difficult at first to see how little substance is behind it.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Men play women. Women play men. Blacks play whites. An Asian plays a freckled Victorian. Bad accents flourish. And Hugo Weaving, whether he's a he, she, or ridiculous hoodoo leprechaun, is always the villain.

It plays like a gargantuan trailer for a movie still to be made (one that, given the same ratio, would be 86 hours long).
