Hugo is a sweet drama starring Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer and Ray Winstone.
Martin Scorsese directs this movie and the craft used is the work of a true master. The film looks beautiful and its clear Scorsese loved recreating the works of Georges Melies.
The cast are very good (particulary Ben Kingsley) and the story has a charm about it. The main problem with this movie though is that its story is too grown up for kids to enjoy while adults may be too cynical to really enjoy the experience.
Hugo is a beautiful work of art and Scorsese's love of the source material is clear but personally I found it difficult to connect to this movie. As a fan of Scorsese's I found myself longing for his more adult work.
