Editors Note
Note Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Brian Selznick's award-winning novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret stars Asa Butterfield, as an orphan boy who lives in a Parisian train station. Sent to live with his drunken uncle after his father's death in a fire, Hugo learned how to wind the massive clocks that run throughout the station. When the uncle disappears one day, Hugo decides to maintain the clocks on his own, hoping nobody will catch on to him squatting in the station.^His natural aptitude for engineering leads him to steal gears, tools, and other items from a toy-shop owner who maintains a storefront in the station. Hugo needs these purloined pieces in order to rebuild a mechanical man that was left in the father's care at the museum -- the restoration was a project father and son did together.^When Georges (Ben Kingsley), the old man who runs the toy stand, catches on to the thievery, he threatens to turn Hugo over to the station's lone police officer (Sacha Baron Cohen, who makes every effort to send any parentless child in the station to the orphanage. But Hugo's run-in with Georges leads to a friendship with the elderly gentleman's goddaughter, Isabelle (Chloe Grace Moretz), who unknowingly possesses the last item Hugo needs to make the mechanical man work again.
Reviews
Chicago Sun-Times 4 stars out of 4 -- "HUGO is unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget, family epic in 3-D, and in some ways, a mirror of his own life." 11/18/2011
Wall Street Journal "Martin Scorsese's love of the movie medium shines through almost every frame of HUGO, which culminates in a creation -- a fascinating re-creation -- that could only have been achieved by a filmmaker with all of the medium's resources at his command." 11/25/2011
Los Angeles Times "[W]ith its beautiful panoramic shots of 1930s Paris, the director's visually thrilling HUGO has real moments of 3-D magic." 11/23/2011
Box Office 5 stars out of 5 -- "Magical and imaginative, this eye-popping masterpiece from director Martin Scorsese will transport audiences to a place they won't believe." 11/21/2011
USA Today "[T]he manner in which the film blends the tale of an imperiled boy and the history of cinema makes for an ambitious and fanciful ride." 11/20/2011
New York Times "[A]n enchantment from Martin Scorsese....It?s serious, beautiful, wise to the absurdity of life and in the embrace of a piercing longing." 11/23/2011
Hollywood Reporter "A passionate brief for film preservation wrapped in a fanciful tale of childhood intrigue and adventure, HUGO dazzlingly conjoins the earliest days of cinema with the very latest big-screen technology." 11/17/2011
Movieline "With HUGO Scorsese forges a connection between past and present, enlisting newish 3-D technology in the service of honoring all the things movies can mean to us....HUGO states, in its adamant, straightforward poetry, that old things do matter." 11/23/2011
Washington Post 3 stars out of 4 -- "With its gorgeous sets and superb camerawork by Robert Richardson, HUGO splashes across the screen with elegant, visually vibrant flair..." 11/23/2011
A.V. Club "It?s a complex fusion of film history and personal history, filled with dazzling embellishments and unabashed sentiment about the glories of cinema." -- Grade: A- 11/22/2011

Rolling Stone 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "HUGO will take your breath away. It truly is the stuff that dreams are made of." 12/08/2011
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat emerges is wonderful: an enchanting, funny, heartfelt love letter to French film pioneer Georges Melies -- and to cinema itself." 02/01/2012
Sight and Sound "HUGO is certainly a vivid concoction, beginning with an epic swoop into and through a bustling, smoke-wreathed Montparnasse station....HUGO's characters invoke cinema's magic and wonder..." 02/01/2012

ReviewSource Salon
Review Instead of sticking with the familiar, Scorsese has followed his impulses into something that feels entirely new but is still distinctively his. He has made a potential holiday classic, an exciting, comic and sentimental melodrama that will satisfy children and adults alike and reward repeat viewings for many years to come.

Review The way Hugo deals with Melies is enchanting in itself, but the film's first half is devoted to the escapades of its young hero. In the way the film uses CGI and other techniques to create the train station and the city, the movie is breathtaking.

David Denby,The New Yorker Hugo is superbly playful.
Kim Newman,Empire This is a great director's greatest love story.
Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune This kind of cinematic delight is a rarity, a warm and masterfully crafted reminder of why we love to go to the movies in the first place.
Richard Corliss, Time Bursting with earned emotion, Hugo is a mechanism that comes to life at the turn of a key in the shape of a heart.
