Hugo 3D

Hugo (Asa Butterfield from The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) is an orphan, with a natural talent for mechanics and engineering, who lives in the walls of a Paris train station. With the station's foul tempered inspector (Sacha Baron Cohen) on his tail, Hugo becomes entangled in a magical adventure when he encounters a broken robot made by his late father (Jude Law), a mischievious girl (Chloë Moretz, Let Me In) and the elderly owner of a toy shop (Ben Kingsley).

Winner of 5 Oscars - Best Cinematography, Art Direction, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing and Visual Effects - at the 2012 Academy Awards. Best Director (Scorsese), Golden Globes 2012. Best Film and Best Director, National Board of Review Awards 2011.

In attempting to make his first film for all ages, Martin Scorsese has fashioned one for the ages. Simultaneously classical and modern, populist but also unapologetically personal, Hugo flagrantly defies the mind-numbing quality of most contempo kidpics.

Martin Scorsese’s 3D debut is a technical marvel that weds heart to art in its soaring second half. For anyone who loves cinema - who really loves cinema - it can't be missed.

It’s serious, beautiful, wise to the absurdity of life and in the embrace of a piercing longing.

It's a deeply felt piece of work, something which only Scorsese could have brought to the screen.

Hugo's use of the third dimension is exceptionally well thought out and essential to the film's ability to make a children's vision of the world come to life.

It’s a complex fusion of film history and personal history, filled with dazzling embellishments and unabashed sentiment about the glories of cinema.

‎"Hugo" Yesterday. just four of us viewed this winner of five Oscars - all in technical fields. It is a 3-D fantasy that is great movie entertainment. While, to this curmudgeonly embryonic geriatric, it is slow moving at times, it is the delightful story of two teenage friends who resurrect the memory and reputation of a famous pioneer French filmmaker.

Whatever you think you know about Hugo... it is far more amazing than you could ever expect. The whole storyline was so beautifully dealt with, easily stepping away from what could have been a cliched 'message'. Asa Butterfield... gosh, he was just AMAZING. Such a young actor, full of talent. His counterpart, Chloe Moretz, was also a joy to watch. Seeing it...

Hugo 3D I wasnt expecting much due to all the hype, and thanks to 'AI', 'Sexy Beast', 'Bruno' and 'Harry Potter' actors it truely tugs at you in all the right places. This emotional roller coaster has great direction and acting. Now I can see why ther was such a hopla about it. Only let down by some of the kids acting,but thats normal for kids, still held...

It may not work as a family film in an age of robots that are cars that are robots - with big guns... But for any cinephile, Scorsese's film is a delightful evocation and homage to the birth of cinema and special effects. Tipping its hat liberally to the pioneers of film, Georges Melies, the Lumiere Brothers, this plays like Christopher Nolan's THE PRESTIGE...

I was delighted to see Scorsese was making a family film, but as with fellow Icon Steven Spielberg's recent Tin-Tin was apprehensive to learn it would be in 3D. The results however were spectacular; Scorsese has brought his mastery to the art of 3D with the magical Hugo. Set in 1930's Paris, Hugo is the spellbinding tale of newly orphaned Hugo Cabaret (Asa...
