Despite its shortcomings, it's worth seeing and worth trying to get your head around days after you have. Revolutionary or gimmicky? Good news: Not quite either.

Even at its most risible, this oddball picture has a groovy, inclusive spirit that feels downright revolutionary in our sterile, blockbuster age.

A little too unfocused at times, there's something deeply involving about this time-spanning romantic thesis.

An epic, genre-hopping, unique adventure that effectively shoe-horns six films into one...Cloud Atlas achieves that rarest of all things for a film this big: it is engaging and consistently entertaining as well as providing brain food.

A compelling, uncynical, often thrilling package, the likes of which we've never seen before, and will perhaps never see replicated. I will watch Cloud Atlas more than once.

Tykwer and the Wachowskis are aiming for greatness here. They don't make it, and that leaves the unorthodox film open to savagery, far more than it deserves.
