Hugo ★★★½

At first, this film hardly kept my interest. But as the film went on, it became quite entertaining. The main plot of the film doesn't come into place until halfway through the movie. It's also disappointing when a film's main message is so cliche - Everyone has a purpose. Everything happens for a reason.

At most times, having a child actor in a film is a kiss of death, especially when it is the protagonist. This is not the case with this film. I was also very surprised by all the familiar faces in this film, including Chloë Grace Moretz (Hit Girl in Kick-Ass, Kaylie Hooper in 30 Rock) and even Christopher Lee, (Saruman from LOTR) who plays a librarian.

My main complaint with this movie is that the only Antagonist in this film doesn't get their comeuppance.
