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.

the most soulful, most personal fiction film in [Scorsese's] career
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
La imaginación y la perfecta ejecución cinematográfica de Martin Scorsese y su equipo de maestros colaboradores son la llave y la puerta de entrada a este cálido homenaje al arte cinematográfico.
This movie is magic and it honors all those magicians like Martin Scorcese who make dreams we can all share.
Scorsese's unlikely 3D family film takes an agreeably pragmatic stance, that we must embrace the past yet never deny progress.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
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.
Never mind that the tone wavers and the pace is mostly plodding, the film champions all the right things and the beautifully crafted images (in 3D glory) leave a lasting impression
There are many lovely things in this film it is easy to forgive its small shortcomings
