Movie Critique: Cloud Atlas

An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.


This movie is by far one of the best I've viewed in years.  It was enthralling, moving, thought-provoking and just plain interesting. The cast including Tom Hanks, Haley Berry, Hugo Weaving and Huge Grant, is awesome as they portray multiple character in the various stories along the timeline.

Cloud Atlas the movie intertwines six stories: The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing, Letters from Zedelghem, Half-Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery, The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish, An Orison of Sonmi~451, Sloosha's Crossin' an' Ev'rythin' After from the David Mitchell novel of the same name.

I was so amazed at this nearly three-hour show, that I actually want to see it a second time to catch what I missed the first time around.

Obviously I loved this movie.  It really is a must see!

Screened on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012 at Carmike Theater, Saginaw, MI

  1. Now I'm interested. I haven't watched a decent movie in years so this may be it.
