Everything might be connected in Cloud Atlas, but initial reviews show that not everyone is connecting to the movie starring the likes of Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent and Susan Sarandon.
The highly anticipated flick, codirected by Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer, made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday, and mixed reactions are already starting to surface.
So what do some folks have to say about it? Read on!
- "Every story, character and scene in Cloud Atlas commits to a style. That diversity keeps the swirling maelstrom of a movie in check," states Matt Patches of Hollywood.com.
- "As much a curiosity as it is a boldly brilliant adaptation that captures the best moments of Mitchell's novel while improving upon the structure and enhancing the main themes," states ComingSoon.net's Edward Douglas.
- "At 163 minutes, Cloud Atlas carries all the marks of a giant folly, and those unfamiliar with the book will be baffled," Henry Barnes of The Guardian points out. "Yet it's hard to wholly condemn the directors' ambition. This is fast-paced and cleverly assembled."
Cloud Atlas hits theaters on Oct. 26.
