Movie reviews for Cloud Atlas

2014-10-21  Niels Risgaard Hansen: 8 out of 10
A good movie with a great plot and a fascinating set of stories!

Based on the short description my streaming service provided, I did not have any idea of what this movie was about. I just saw the cast and thought “this cannot be all bad” - and I was right!
It is a series of stories with no direct contact to each other but still with a recurring theme. The movie skips between the stories quite a lot and for me it was a bit confusing at first, but luckily they are all told chronologically, and after a while you get hooked on each of them. It actually works pretty well.

As mentioned above the cast is a series of high profile actors. Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant just to name a few. All did a really good job in my opinion.

Despite (at times) being a sci-fi movie, it is in no way effects-driven. They are in fact rather toned down and indistinct. This is by no means a bad thing, as it keeps the focus on the stories and the acting instead.

In general a very well written movie that despite being more than two hours long caught my attention from start till end.
