Hugo is one of the most well advertised movies of 2011 and already nominated for Golden Globes and Oscars. Except that, the trailer looks more than amazing and it totally makes you want to watch the movie.
I have to say i was a bit disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the graphics, the cinematography, the music is simply perfect. The whole movie is an wow from visual aspect even though i didn't watch the 3D version, which is been said it's one of the best out there. An amazing cast of known and unknown actors, are featured in the movie and all of them, with Ben Kingsley on top, did an amazing job. And the music fits so well every scene, that it totally brings it to life.
BUT, there were some things i need to mention. 1) The trailer is really misleading. It's too magical, and adventurous while the movie is quite slow and has a heavy feeling. Not exactly a happy movie. 2) The movie is supposed to be for kids, but i highly doubt they will enjoy it that much. Probably they will fall asleep. 3)It was a little confusing. The plot line felt a little dead to me, and it was after the first half that got me really interested. It was missing something. It had a beautiful message, but didn't catch my attention that much.It felt like doesn't have a purpose most of the time. It's not a movie, to watch a second time for sure. Too big, too slow, not much to keep you awake. Not really an adventure. Or better it's more of an adventure of mind, that what we have in mind as real adventure.
I mostly recommend the movie for everything else than the plotline. And better watch in Blu-Ray. It will be beautiful.
