Based on the best-selling novel, and from the creators of The Matrix Trilogy and the director of Run Lola Run, Cloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future.



  • Ambitious filmmaking but with many flaws

    By Nicholas becerra
    Needless to say Cloud Atlas wasn't my expectations seeing it because right after the embrassment of the Wachowisk's other film The Matrix Revolutions which packed a lot of hate and desire towards the Matrix troilgy and left me disappointed. Although the Matrix is still a cult classic and the sequel was a bit more updated Revolutions was a hitter miss enstallment in the franchise with Wachowski's new film Cloud Altas is an ambitious film with all sort of intelligent filmmaking and washed out storylines to keep you company. Cloud Altas centers around 6 different stories that connect with each other in a way that the conclusive narrative is stuck in between character development and daring visual effects. Gotta say the visual effects were more realistc and had a lot of style towards the actors to shine, The Wachowski brothers have accomplished the matrix troilgy i know but Cloud Atlas is nothing sort of fraustrating or entertaining for me to be engaged to the story but all i found from Cloud Atlas was untentionally hailrious momments. Cloud Altas has a stellar cast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess, Ben Whisaw (Skyfall) and Hugo Weaving (The Lord of the Rings troilgy). The cast is supporting enough to play each other sex and race throughout the entire era of times and events that are occured in the film and for me it was distracting to see other characters with some level of connection and charactiscts they accomplished. Cloud Atlas left me with questions than answers could it be that The Wachowski brothers made a film worse than the Matrix Revolutions? no but with all the narrative stories and complicated plotholes in each era of time the result is beyond writting and special characters that are likable or interesting for the audience to get bored or confused into what is happening. Now i do like some of the stories but some of the acting and character development felt incomplete and left me wondering who is this made for? can i enjoy a sci-fi movie mixed with the sin city of storytelling or a future world mixed with Blade Runner, The Fifth Element or Akria (Anime) But i thought this sci-fi movie was going to be about timelapse into action after action but visually this movie looks gorgeous, yeah this film looks like a brilliant set piece for each and other story. Cloud Altas is a little disappointing despite it's brilliant cast members that are casted in the film and not that the movie is neither confusing or lacklusting for me to enjoy it. Decide for yourself either you love Cloud Atlas or not you can still watch it not knowing your expecatations are running low on gas.

    Unlike anything I’ve ever seen!
  • What?

    By Thriller Seeker
    If something in the movie happened that related to anything else I totally missed it. Kept looking for the connection and never found any. Read some of the other ratings and they also couldn't understand a lot of what was being said. Should have watched paint dry.

    Wonderful Cinema, Characters, Performances, Casting, and Story. A breath of fresh air in the Swamp of Explosions, Fast Cars, And over the top Cliche that has become the Hollywood Machine. Saludos Tykwer & Wachowskis

  • This movie will stay with me forever!

    By DanWildWood
    There ain´t enough stars in the universe to rate this. Watching Cloud Atlas is an experience beyond this world...
  • Intricate and amazing!

    By Molomosh
    One of my favorites! I know it isn’t for everyone, in fact a few of my friends HATED it. I love the recurring themes, I love that the actors play different archetypes in each timeline, I love the subtle references - it is a beautifully complex and poetic story. I do think it may help some people to watch it more than once since the timeline jumps can be confusing.
  • Epic!

    By Jeff___L If you're ok with a long movie this is worth it. For me it's right up there with Avatar and the Matrix as one of the greatest movies ever made. It's an epic tale of many stories and lifetimes intertwined. There's also a lot of deep symbolism asking questions of what's going on in our modern world and where are we headed. If you're a moron looking for a brainless action movie and you cannot follow an intricate plot don't watch this. If you're looking for an epic deep movie this is a MUST SEE!
  • My Review for Cloud Atlas

    By Gcorzo
    Cloud Atlas is one of the most beautiful films I’ve ever seen in my life.I love this movie so much the story is amazing the performances are good the visuals effects are really great and the make up is also great as well and the critics who don’t like this movie well your wrong why well the reason why critics are wrong because they have not seen the movie 2 times if the critics want to understand the story they have to watch it 2 times or 3 times or 5 times that’s not that hard.And I was upset that cloud atlas was a box office flop and I was also upset that the oscars did not nominated this movie for anything they did not nominated for nothing I’m really upset well that’s my review for Cloud atlas I’m going to cloud atlas a.A+ 10/10
