    Great film that contains a numerous amount of Beatles songs that are embedded into the storyline.

    I hate musicals with a passion I reserve for few other things. And this is worse than the average one.

    Actually it was a very nice movie, a little slow, and there's one scene that's so totally unnecessary it was really bad.

    This is really 4.5 stars, but minus 1 star because of the hideously overused autotune on the vocals throughout. It really did ruin the film for me a lot of the time and that is just too bad. Maybe someday they will realise how stupid it is and do a new soundtrack without autotuned vocals.

    Perfectly psychedelic and perfectly sung from start to finish. Great job on the casting side. Still one of my favorite soundtracks.

    Across The Universe is a film that could never win and it is certainly a film that is flawed, but I believe it gets a fair amount right.

    First of all, and it's the reason you're watching the film in the first place, is the music. The tracklist is great; not in a "it's songs by The Beatles" way but those responsible didn't just pull their copy of "1" off the shelf and try to make a film out of…

    Based upon pure enjoyment, I'd rate ACROSS THE UNIVERSE higher than I did. After all, it was fun and tuneful and pretty to watch. However, as an authentic former hippie/radical, I cringed throughout an awful lot of it and I just can't give the movie a pass. The look was right (props to the set designers), but the writing was all wrong. "You look wicked bad"? Please. I'm still waiting for somebody to tell my story -- lunatic optimism, rampant paranoia, unparalleled camaraderie, warts, head lice, and all.

    "Two cliches make us laugh. A hundred cliches move us. For we sense dimly that the cliches are talking among themselves, and celebrating a reunion." - Umberto Eco on Casablanca

    The quote applies to this film because when it works, like in the first 40 minutes of Across the Universe when the main cast are all meeting each other and having fun in The 60's, it's irresistible. It's only when the Vietnam and Civil Rights stuff gets shoved incongruously into…

    Hands-down the worst movie I've ever seen. I've never wanted to take a hammer to someone's skull more. It was one of the few movies I couldn't actually finish.

    Coming from someone who was never really a Beatles fan, this movie is amazing. I can only imagine how much a huge Beatles fan would love this one.

    I haven't seen a whole lot of musicals, but obviously there are many different ways of doing it. Some include the music in a way that makes sense, some just break out into song, some are more fun while others are more serious. I think this movie is more of the fun and enjoyable type, and I like it for that. Sure, it can be cheesy, and you can nit pick little things and roll your eyes when you hear…
