Movie Reviews

  • you might start to wish that resourceful Hugo could make your timepiece move faster, but then the second hour kicks in, and so does the magic Scorsese has been struggling to keep aloft
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • was something like a doctoral examination mixed with a full-body scan: It's his first film in 3-D, it's arguably his first for and/or about children, and it's one that made him rethink . . . well, everything
    3 of 4 by John Anderson [Newsday ]
  • the movie is replete of ironies, contradictions, paradoxes, and richly dense in cinematic allusions
    Review rate : A- by Emanuel Levy [EmanuelLevy.Com ]
  • the manner in which the film blends the tale of an imperiled boy and the history of cinema makes for an ambitious and fanciful ride
    3.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • the luxuriously romantic side of Scorsese's own work, where he wants audiences to become lost in the screen
    4 of 4 by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail ]
  • one of the least cynical films of this or any other year. Show it a little faith, and show a little faith in the children in your life, and maybe they'll both surprise you
    5 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • maybe it shouldn't surprise us that "Hugo," which is supposed to be about a likable orphaned scamp, is in fact a movie about an aged moviemaker, film preservation and repairing busted things
    2 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
  • it will fall to adults to explain how rare and marvelous it is to actually find such a work of art
    5 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News ]
  • it is lovely. And there's something to be said for loveliness, and something to be said for the loveliness that can be realized on a screen. As they say in Hugo, movies have "the power to capture dreams"
    3 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • a work of great imagination indeed
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a smart movie, but it also has heart. Those with a passion for early cinema are likely to adore it, although a knowledge of and appreciation for Melies is not requisite to enjoy Scorsese's loving homage
    3.5 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • "Hugo" flagrantly defies the mind-numbing quality of most contempo kidpics and instead rewards patience, intellectual curiosity and a budding interest in cinema itself
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
