"Hugo" is a magical cinematic experience, and a masterpiece so unlike anything Scorsese has made before. Captivating and original, it is the director's most human film yet.

Scorsese is a master storyteller and one of the best directors working today. He doesn't need a gimmick like 3-D to prove this. His films speak more than enough for themselves and "Hugo" is no exception.

It's an ode to cinema; it's everything that modern cinematic audiences take for granted. This film is Scorsese's gift to an audience that isn't old enough to have ever heard his name.

If you've become a little cynical about going to movies due to inflated ticket prices, Michael Bay films and chatty audiences, Hugo may restore your faith in the wonder of cinema.

One of the year's very best, Hugo is a rousing, moving, poignant tale being told on many more levels than what is seen on screen.

Hugo is far too charming, welcoming and beautiful to look at to be dismissed as one of those films that critics adore but audiences ignore.

Uma obra com dupla personalidade que inspira sentimentos conflitantes: é fácil admirá-la intelectualmente, mas difícil abraçá-la emocionalmente.

Scorsese's unlikely 3D family film takes an agreeably pragmatic stance, that we must embrace the past yet never deny progress.

A movie that needs to be appreciated for its finer aspects and deeper meaning if it is to be appreciated properly, which is noble enough but could feel exclusive to some.
