CLOUD ATLAS – YOUR GONNA NEED ONE

If you read the book, prime ticket earner. If not, matinee ticket might be better.

When we review a film, we love to be taken on a journey. That’s definitely what we got with this film.

Halle Berry and Tom Hanks star in this movie as they chronicle the actions of individual lives, detailing the impact that they each have on one another through the journeys of past, present and future.

Directors  Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski, and Lana Wachowski certainly took on a heck of a project, because this was not an easy film to create. If you read the novel, you already know what to expect, but if you didn’t, you just might be confused and possibly disappointed.

Why might you ask? We’ll they are trying to tell the story of many characters across many different settings and time periods. This can easily be done in a book, but when you try to cram it into a 3 hour movie, the task gets much more difficult.

As we have stated, if you read the book, you’re going to love this film. Don’t expect it to be an exact replica, but you will follow the points the directors were trying to present and enjoy it just the same. If you didn’t, well your in for a heck of a ride and you better get your Atlas out so you can follow.
