This is worth watching just for the sequences of the Georges Méliès' films alone. Any student of cinema history will just love this footage. The movie gets off to a rather slow start, but the ending certainly makes up for that. The sets are amazing, some of them almost art works, and there is a magical atmosphere as the children get caught up in an adventure, gradually discovering the story of one of the great creative pioneers of cinema.

This one should have had more release coverage. It was very entertaining.

👏 Everything is great about this loving, warm film. Classifying it as Juvenile is a big mistake. You should really see it in 3D, but if you don't have that opportunity, watch it anyway.

Did not expect this movie to be as good as it was ! Exciting , great cinematography , actors did a great job , and such a touching , heartfelt story line . Certainly would recommend this movie . In fact I would even watch it again , and not too many DVD's that I would say that about . The boy was sure a cutie too .Has funny and sad spots and that is what so good about this well done movie . Very interesting the background of this story also , with some parts based on truth .

A delightful tale with a dash of history. The animation comes off the screen and envelopes the viewer.

This love letter to cinema and more specifically to film pioneer George Mieles is itself a very charming piece of cinema. The visuals are stunning as we follow the life of Hugo who while living as an orphan in a train station and tending to it's clocks, is seeking his place in life and his identity. In the journey he helps restore a broken old man (Mieles) to his place in life while touching the lives of numerous other people as well.

HUGO CABRET: I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.

Hugo Cabret: "Everything has a purpose - even machines... Clocks tell the time... trains take you places... They do what they're meant to do." Isabelle: "Like Monsieur Labisse!" Hugo Cabret: "Maybe that's why broken machines make me so sad... they can't do what they're meant to do... Maybe it's the same with people. If you lose your purpose... it's like you're broken."
