This film is an oddity. It’s a PG-rated film directed by Martin Scorsese aimed squarely at kids. The film feels rather like a mystery. It’s based on a Caldecott-award-winning book called The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Scorsese the visual appeal of that book and was pretty true to it in his film. There is a lot more picture than dialogue. And the visuals are pretty excellent. The station looks wonderful, as does all the clockwork in Hugo’s home. Ben Kingsley is pretty wonderful, and the focus that the film ends up taking on old silent films is fun. In the end, it was just a little too slow, too convenient, and too much aimed at children. I found it worth my time, though.
