I’ve seen the Cloud Atlas trailer twice during the previews of The Master and Argo (my review will come up later). Both time really had me confused what exactly the movie was about.
From summaries I’ve heard, all I understand is that it’s about multiple stories happening at different periods of time with the same characters. Yeah, I don’t get it either.
The movie was done by Workowskis, who made The Matrix. While I did enjoy it, I didn’t think it revolutionized the sci-fi genre like most people said. And then they made Speed Racer, based on the kiddy anime series. It also gets my vote for being one of the worst films of the past five years.
So this might be a welcome return for them back to serious sci-fi for the siblings but I’m not to sure. I heard that the book that it’s based on was supposed to be unfilmable, plus early reviews have been mixed. I’ll probably see it if nothing else is playing around but I don’t really have high hopes though.
