Dave Adamson’s review:
The cover of this Blu-Ray (with Hugo hanging from the clock tower) made me think that this was going to be a fantasy film, a la The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
Instead, we get a rather touching story of love and loss, hope and dreams, as Hugo (Asa Butterfield) and Isabelle (Chloe Moretz) go in search of the secret of Hugo's father and the connection to Isabelle's godfather.
Visually impressive (in both 2D and 3D), well directed and a love letter to a different time in the world of film.
