Movie Review: Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas MovieBased on a novel of the same title written by British author David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas is a drama and sci-fi movie. It’s an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution. The independent film was directed by Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer and Andy Wachowski and is top billed by Tom Hanks and Halle Berry.

I haven’t read the book but I would like to believe that the movie is faithful to its content. Cloud Atlas consists of six nested stories set from the nineteenth century and then crosses to a distant future, and back. As the movie evolves, then you’ll understand the tagline “Everything is connected.”

I love the storytelling. It’s like a tapestry, perfectly woven together to create a masterful art. I was engrossed throughout the entirety of the movie. A note to all moviegoers, give your undivided attention as you watch the movie. This is not an ordinary film. Cloud Atlas is one of those that require analysis and intuition to be better appreciated. Suffice it to say that this is one for the intelligent. :)

It’s always a pleasure watching Tom Hanks in the movie. it’s been sometime since I last watched one of my favorite actors in the big screen. Cloud Atlas actually stars an ensemble of credible actors, each delivering outstanding performances.

Cloud Atlas Movie CastAside from great acting, I also loved the set design and costumes. It’s one of the things that kept me hooked in the entire stretch of the movie that lasted for almost 3 hours. Check out some of the stills.

I highly recommend Cloud Atlas. This is one of those movies that I will keep watching several times and not grow weary. I love that it is able to pull me aside and make me analyze my life, in the past, present and future. Warner Brothers’ Cloud Atlas will be exclusively screened starting December 5 at SM Cinema movie houses as part of its Cinexclusive Series. Watch it.
