Amazing film of a little boy who is orphaned and lives in a train station in Paris France. Hugo soon wins the trust of an elderly man who sells items in the station, and as we come to discover, is in fact French film pioneer George Melies. IN fact the film can be perceived as a moving tribute to Melies and his work, even featuring a montage of scenes from many a Melies movie at the film's conciusion. Families will love this story.

This movie had a lot of rave reviews, guess it just wasn't our cup of tea. I found it difficult to stay engaged in the story and it was loooong.

Hugo is what movies are all about, fantasy intertwined with reality (the true story of French cinematographer Georges Melies who pioneered the first "horror films" ), excellent acting by the child stars. Shows Scorsese's life-long love of the medium of film. This is a classic film story made to be suitable for young viewers.

This is a great "family" movie that's not boring for adults to watch with their kids. My husband loves fantasy and adventure films. I love realistic dramas about social issues. Our seven-year-old daughter likes anything about kids. It's usually difficult to find films we all three love, but this one is a hit for all three of us.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, YESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYESYES! YES! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! By and large one of the finest family films I have EVER seen, this film is all the way up there with 'E.T.' and most of the Studio Ghibli movies. It's charcters are fun and likable, the story is rich, the visuals are beautiful, the entire adventure, this journey, this mystery is all told so much skill and dedication. Even the most sour critic can find at least something to enjoy.

The best film of 2011.

They're not secrets if the audience knows about them.

beautiful movie - the color and details that come off the screen, so cool. it is a moving story, too, with a little history added to it as well. it is based on a book and i recommend to all to read it first. not to say that you will not enjoy this movie if you don't, but it will add to it. i recommend it.

An orphan boy, Hugo, who sets the clocks in a Parisian train station (and secretly lives there) searches for a message from his late father through a robot that's missing a mechanical piece. However, the robot has mysterious connections to other people Hugo knows, opening up a new world of secrets about them and threatening to open up Hugo's secrets to them, too.

Hugo Cabret: "Everything has a purpose - even machines... Clocks tell the time... trains take you places... They do what they're meant to do." Isabelle: "Like Monsieur Labisse!" Hugo Cabret: "Maybe that's why broken machines make me so sad... they can't do what they're meant to do... Maybe it's the same with people. If you lose your purpose... it's like you're broken."

  • britprincess1 rated this: 4.5 stars out of 5.

HUGO CABRET: I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.
