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

The Mercury
January 13, 2012
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

Scorsese, now in the winter of his career, has tapped into his own childlike passion for film with this late-period masterpiece.

It's not an adventure, but a loving tribute to all the broken things, and those who would fix them.

You can practically feel time stop in sync with the audience's halted breath. It's nothing short of wizardry.

Who knew? The director who put the rage in Raging Bull the fear in Cape Fear and the mean in Mean Streets could make a family-friendly, dazzling 3D film.

In Hugo Scorsese not only tells an important story about early cinema, but delivers a film that is a passionate and convincing reminder of the essential role art and imagination should play in our lives.

Ebert Presents At The Movies

The energy that's behind all of [Scorsese's] films is definitely present here.
Perry Seibert
TV Guide

[Hugo is] movie that will probably appeal more to hardcore film nerds than to nine-year-olds, unless of course that youngster will grow into a movie geek. If that's the case, Hugo will be a touchstone in their cinematic development.

Being a hardcore cinephile (like Scorsese) might add a layer of enjoyment, but it certainly isn't a prerequisite for walking in the door. A sense of wonder, however, is.

Kingsley, who is surely this generations Robert Duvall (the man NEVER gives a bad performance) makes the character of Papa George come to life.

As $150million public service announcements about the importance of the film preservation movement go, this is one of the best.
