Cloud Atlas


Cloud Atlas

Critics Consensus

Its sprawling, ambitious blend of thought-provoking narrative and eye-catching visuals will prove too unwieldy for some, but the sheer size and scope of Cloud Atlas are all but impossible to ignore.

Movie Info

Cloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future. Each member of the ensemble appears in multiple roles as the stories move through time. -- (C) Warner Bros.

    Endless uncomprehendible twaddle.

    I wasn't a big fan of this film. The Wachowskis definitely worked hard but I sadly wasn't very fond of this film. Lot of things don't make sense and a very unusual film. Though it does have some cool sequences, nice visuals and some good performances but overall I felt this movie was a mess.

    6 people are connected in stories set from the 19th century to post apocalyptic future. While Cloud Atlas was not boring at all, its pretentious themes annoyed me greatly. Each story felt incomplete by the narration. However I did enjoy the ensemble of each actor appeared in different roles in the different tales. Tom Hanks was simply amazing. Ambitious yet the visual effects failed to catch my attention. Cloud Atlas deserves one viewing and can be completely discarded after.

    On reconnait bien l'univers des Wachowski. Beaucoup d'histoires à suivre en même temps. Je vais devoir revoir ce film pour bien l'apprà (C)cier. Cependant c'est un gros 3h ....
