This week movie review is on Cloud Atlas. Well, I know it is a little too late for it as in other part of the nation it was shown on October 26th. But it came slightly later in Malaysia. Cloud Atlas, how should I say or put it into words. Was it a good movie? Or was it bad?. The poster looks promising but how promising and awesome. It had the theme of steam punk concept. That was what I thought at first.
At first glance it was hard to understand and what was going on inside the movie.
The concept and its idea behind it was all about consequences and action. Even after a person is reborn, situations will never be the same and consequences depends on what sort of action one had taken. Is that complicated enough for you? To make it more understandable, it was a very Buddhism concept and it involves in Karma situation.
For a moment there, I thought Tom Hanks was the only one involved in the movie. But as the plots gets deeper, I find myself totally at lost at certain part of the movie. I had to crack my head while watching it to understand the entire whole idea and who was who.
Overall this movie was …… confusing. It was so confusing up to the point that I seriously had not much to write about it compared to the rest of the movies before this. Last but not least, do not get confused by the poster. Otherwise, you would have wish for a 3 hour refund back both cash, time and your life. Then again, it all depends on individual personal point of view. Some say it was touching and good, some say it was interesting, some say it was normal, some say it was bad, as for me I say…what was it I was watching again?
