Hugo becomes an orphan but somehow becomes independent and self-reliant. His curiosity and persistence to understand the things that his father (Jude Law) left behind leads him to an experience like no other that a child his age could ever imagine. And the key component that leads him to a world that he has been enthralled and fascinated with, his father's small sketch notebook; the notebook was one of the last objects along with the mechanical figure that his father had been working on that will help to spark Hugo's energy to unlock the mystery behind the drawings and the mechanical figure. But before he and Isabelle area able to unlock the mystery, he encounters a disgruntled toy shopkeeper by the name of Georges (Ben Kingsley)and retrieves the notebook who inquires about the drawings; but as the film progresses more mysterious elements arise and the question of who exactly is Georges? But along the way, Hugo does not make his journey alone, and he befriends Georges's goddaughter Isabelle (Chloe Grace Moretz). The drawings reveal much in terms of the love for film and its origins, which renowned and critically acclaimed Director Martin Scoresese helped to revive and unlock the mystery as well as the history of film-making within the main character of Hugo as well as other most recent films The Artist. Both films recaptured the craft and innovation of what movies had first set out to accomplish - entertain but also make the filmgoer wonder after the last credits of the film have gone up. But also most notably, the individuals that first made this world of wonderment happen and what Hugo's storyline centers upon, legendary filmmaker George Mèliés and the cinema.
With the sudden resurgence of the history of film, the release of Hugo and The Artist are a welcoming aspect, especially during this rise of technology within the film industry and overall within the cinema. It is amazing to see that films still make one think and offer discussion afterwards.
The story is about a young orphan, Hugo, played by Asa Butterfield, who lives in a train station in Paris in the 1930's and takes care of maintaining the clocks after his drunken uncle, Claude, played by Ray Winstone disappears. Hugo was close to his dad, played by Jude Law, before he is killed in a museum fire. He has to steal food from the local vendors in order to survive and he spends a lot of his time trying to repair an automaton, kind of a robot, that his dad brought home from the museum before he died. Papa Georges, played very convincingly by Ben Kingsley, puts Hugo to work for him to pay off his debt for stealing parts for the automaton. A girl his age named Isabelle, played by Chloë Grace Moretz, ends up helping Hugo. The acting is superb and the story, if a little predictable at times, is still a good one.
My main reason for purchasing this movie was to try out the 3D using passive 3D lenses, with a new TV. It was a good choice for a first movie because it gave a glimpse of what is possible and how good 3D movie making can be.
