Declaration of Love to the Cinema

Easily one of the most visually impressive movies of the last 10 years, and with one of the biggest hearts, Hugo sees Martin Scorsese turning away from his usual stomping ground of guns and gangsters and go family friends, to mostly excellent results. The story has all the charm and whimsy of your average Spielberg picture, with an affable child lead who has big dreams in a small world, and lives out his own mini-adventure, inevitably absorbing and affecting all those who come into contact with him. The movie, much like Napoleon Dynamite, is effortlessly sweet, which never becomes too sentimental or depressing, and the ending ties everything up nicely. Throughout the film, Scorsese demonstrates his obvious adoration for movies of old, and the movie is essentially a love letter to cinema. It's principle drawbacks are its pacing and runtime. At 2 hours long it unfortunately overstays its welcome, and moves so leisurely at times that many will lose patience with it. For the most part I really liked it, and Mr Scorsese clearly has a lot of things to say. It's just a shame that he takes far too long to say them.

Not knowing what the movie is about, I was surprised to slowly discover a sentimental tribute by one of the present master of cinematic arts to one of the pioneers of the medium.

The Americanism and Englishness of the players in a Parisian setting can be a bit jarring (or very jarring, depending on your mileage over such things), but that flaw does not detract from the overall beauty of the film.

Yes. Beautiful. That's what this (masterpiece?) is.

Visually gorgeous but a too steady pace and plodding plot leaves you with movie that begs to be "framed and hung on a wall" rather than watched as entertainment.

Let's be honest, it is disappointing to see a movie that wants to praise the magic of Cinema but whose 3D doesn't always work so well, and it feels like two different stories clumsily combined, with unnecessary subplots and a mediocre leading performance by Asa Butterfield.

An intimate post-war text that shows the period of Great Depression with sophistication carefully placed in a vessel of fantasy. Scorcese' brilliant work shows Paris of 1930s and how the war had left the city crippled with hunger, poverty, and orphans. Three very strong characters helping each other to 'fix' in them what was broken, makes the film a personal experience. Its a guided tour for those who might have lost their purpose to function in a machine called 'world'. its magical!

Martin Scorsese, seriously what can go wrong. Of all the blood and gore films he made. And a children's one. Genius!!

After directing countless gritty, violent films, legendary director Martin Scorsese chooses to tackle something completely outside his usual territory. He pulls it off with near-perfection in "Hugo."

Hugo is pure and simply a masterpiece. it is for everyone, families, film critics, and movie fans, if you are a fan of movies then you will like this movie. For those critics who think this is a bad movie, you're not a movie critic.

If ever there were a film that makes me want to make films, it's Martin Scorsese's masterpiece HUGO. The combination of top-of-the-line visual effects with the soulful tribute to where film has been brought a tear to my eye.

Scorsese is one of the few "old breed" American filmmakers left in the world, and I would argue that he's the very best in the world. His films typically pull from a certain vein: purely American. His films are about American culture, history, ideals, misgivings, blunders, etc. This is a universal picture that seeks to do one thing: make the kind of cinematic magic act that the great Mà (C)liès would have made himself, had he been given the technology we have now.
