4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Film March 4 2012
By Ryan
Format:DVD
This film is a love letter to the early days of cinema. It is wonderfully acted, very touching, and you'll learn some history along the way. It does not have a lot of action, but the views are breathtaking, the subject matter compelling (though it might not hold interest for most younger children), and a great chance for director Martin Scorsese to make the dream fantasy film he was always wanted to make. I highly recommend it!

I read The Invention of Hugo Cabret when it was first published - and loved it. Usually I don't give the film version a chance when that happens. (For example, I did not watch Angela's Ashes, nor did I watch Water for Elephants. For some reason, I gave Hugo a chance.)

Wow. I'm glad I did. This film is not only very faithful to the book - but sets the book in motion - which is, of course, entirely appropriate.

The choice of actors is perfect. The sets are fantastical and quite entirely beautiful. The photography is stunning. Martin Scorcese has outdone himself here.

This film picks up quite a pace and keeps you on the edge of your seat from then on. But it has a very worthwhile message, too.

Just to give you a sense of my context, I have a few film favourites that have been made (primarily) for children:
Into the West, with: Gabriel Byrne, Ellen Barkin, Ciarán Fitzgerald, Rúaidhrí Conroy, David Kelly
The Secret of Roan Inish, with: Jeni Courtney, Mick Lally, Eileen Colgan, Richard Sheridan, John Lynch, Susan Lynch, Cillian Byrne
The Three Lives of Thomasina, with: Patrick McGoohan, Susan Hampshire, Karen Dotrice, Matthew Garber, and the voice of Elspeth March as Thomasina the cat.

Hugo is now on my list.

By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Hugo(released Nov/11) stars Ben Kingsley as George Melies,Asa Butterfield as Hugo Cabret,Chloë Grace Moretz as Isabelle,Sacha Baron Cohen as Inspector Gustave,Jude Law as Hugo's father,Christopher Lee as Monsieur Labisse,and an astounding supporting cast of other actors.This is a nostalgic look back at film making's earliest days and how a young boy is the catalyst for one its most honoured creator's deserved return to the limelight.Beautifully photographed and set decorated,this piece almost immediately brings you into the film titled young boys life and world,and from there the adventure never stops building to its inevitable climax.
The story takes place,I would guess,in the late 20s.Hugo is a young boy living with his father,who works in a museum.Hugo has become a tinkerer of sorts,like his father,and both work together on repairing and bringing back to life an automaton Hugo's father claimed from the museum's basement.One night his father is fatally caught in a conflagration at the museum and Hugo is forced to go and live with his inebriated uncle.The uncle tends the clock works at the Gare Montparnasse,the central train station in Paris.And when his uncle is away,which is quite often,it is left up to Hugo to pick up the slack.Eventually his uncle is found dead,and he is left an orphan.
When Hugo has down time he works away at the automaton.He regularly scrounges parts from an old man who runs a small toy store in the train station.One day the man catches the boy and Hugo is forced to empty his pockets.Among the items the man confiscates is Hugo's diary which his father kept while working on the automaton.That night Hugo follows the man home and speaks to his young god-daughter,who promises to keep her father from burning the book and to help him get it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugo July 22 2012
By Fan
Format:DVD
The entire film is a delight, well worth viewing again (& again) to appreciate its entrancing component parts. The involvement of Ben Kingsley & Johnny Depp, among many others, guarantees excellence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Movie Jan. 26 2014
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hugo is based on a book called "The Invention of Hugo Cabret". Hugo is an orphan who lives within the walls of a Paris train station, keeping numerous clocks wound up. The reason he does this is because he doesn't want anyone to know that his uncle has left him alone (the uncle was supposed to be taking care of the clocks), and the station policeman is always looking for orphans to take to an orphanage. Hugo is also finishing a project that he and his father were working on before his father was killed in a fire. An automaton. There is a mystery about the automaton, and Hugo is determined to solve it.

Even without the intriguing story, Hugo is worthwhile viewing just for the magnificent visual effects, creative sets and amazing photography, At times, the story seems to be taking place in an antique French painting, the colours are so stunning. The music aptly fits every scene and adds to the mysteriousness of the movie. There is a visually dramatic dream sequence to take your breath away. The storyline manages to take us into the birth of the film industry through the advanced technology and genius of what is produced today. Superb performances by all the actors contribute greatly to the success of this movie. There is one scene that alludes to sexual "relations" and becoming pregnant, but it's brief and not explained. I would recommend this movie for teens and adults. Younger children might be fascinated with the special effects, but I wouldn't expect they would understand much of the storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scorsese's whimsical homage to cinema

2.0 out of 5 stars Glimmers of brilliance, but flat.
This was obviously "a love letter to cinema". But there's no reason for it to go on and on and on. All the actors are terrific, especially "Hugo" himself, Asa Butterfield. Read more
