    The Hollywood Reporter

    Not quite soaring into the heavens, but not exactly crash-landing either, Cloud Atlas is an impressively mounted, emotionally stilted adaptation of British author David Mitchell's bestselling novel.

    This would-be epic is beautifully photographed, elegantly crafted and adventurously cast. Unfortunately, though, it plays like a gargantuan trailer for a movie still to be made.

    The cinematography is gorgeous and the makeup amazing, but the story lines are too disconnected.

    Cloud Atlas is certainly out to be a ''visionary'' mindbender, but the film's secret is that it's a nimbly entertaining and light-on-its-feet Hollywood contraption, with the actors cast in multiple roles as if playing a game of dress-up.

good graphics story has too many splits by albertdmartinez
the movie starts out on a confusing travel of different stores and times then it tries to make the different puzzle prices fit together. Too many confusing things to follow, especially with Tom Hanks' fist part of the story when you kinda don't understand the language.
