Hugo (2011)





4 out of 10 Not a fan of Sacha Baron Cohen but ...
Aileen from Dublin, 16 May 2013
Very charming story with excellent performances from Ben Kingsley and Jude Law especially. Watched it in 2D blue ray and worked very well. Maybe a bit long but the cast of mainly British actors kept it interesting. A lot of small cameos (James Joyce in the station cafe) which I would have missed if I hadn't read up on the film before watching it. A very clever and entertaining Scorcese film with a lovely story. Sacha Baron Cohen's character was irritating but I warmed to him by the end.

4.5 out of 10 Best movie I've seen in a while
Noreta from Limerick, 15 Jan 2014
I don't agree with the previous reviewer at all. And I'm not "a fan of Marty". The point is that it's supposed to be whimsical and fairytailish. The style of acting suits the style of movie. It was very strange to see Sacha Baron Cohen in this type of role but he was good I thought. The kid was excellent, his character was very appealing. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Storyline and cinematography.

5 out of 10 Brilliant
Seamus from Monaghan, 07 Oct 2012
When I opened the envelope with this in it I vaguely remembered putting it on my list but couldn't remember why. I thought it was a kid's film but it was there and the wine was open so we popped it in. So glad we did. The colours, the pictures the story. This film has it all. We loved it.
