From legendary Director Martin Scorsese comes a fantastic new 3D family adventure. Hugo is an orphan, clock keeper, and thief living in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. When his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric, bookish girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station (Ben Kingsley) Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy - whilst constantly having to hide from the threat of being sent to the orphanage by the unrelenting Station Inspector (Sacha Baron Cohen). A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father (Jude Law) form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery. Also featuring Christopher Lee, Ray Winstone and Emily Mortimer.

I like it! There was alot of hype at the time and I did not go to the cinema to see it but i bought the movie and I really liked it. I especially like Sasha Baron Cohen and I think he really steals the show in this film. The man actor (the boy) didnt really do much for me but this movie is very nice visual to watch.

After rave reviews from my favourite critics, I was extremely excited to see this Scorsese helmed children's film. I was extremely nonplussed. Personally, I can't stand the vacant expressions and faux disbelief of the young main actor. Points here are scored for Chloe Moretz, who is seemingly always brilliant, and a nice turn by Ben Kingsley, who puts in a believable performance.

I didn't really find this movie very interesting. Whilst the actor performances were generally excellent (and nice to see Sacha Baron Cohen play a relatively normal character for once), it was a very slow paced movie for me. Certain character motivations (or lack thereof) were not convincing, the reasons for perseverance or giving up, just weren't well thought out. I'm unsure children would find it interesting as well. It is an emotional tale that not all children will relate to, nor find inspiring in comparison to other movies. The ending, whilst a happy one, is not one that will readily happen in our real life, though may have happened in the time in which this story was set.
But this is based on a book, so Scorsese can't really be faulted here.

The best 3D movie I've ever seen. I was skeptical when I first found out that Martin Scorsese was going to make a movie for children, but I cannot argue with the final product. This is a brilliant film. Not only is it one of the most gorgeous films I've had the pleasure of viewing (and it MUST be seen in 3D to get the full effect), the score, very influenced by French cinema, is a joy to listen to. I won't spoil the plot, but I will tell you that this is a love letter from Scorsese to the art of cinema. It is a beautiful, emotionally captivating film, and at this price you'd be a fool not to buy it.

Did not really feel the movie explained much. not a movie with real susbstance. However, that is what i feel. I do understand that it was nominated fro a lot of awards, but i did not see why. the visuals are really pretty, but besides that, not much more in the movie worth buying for.
