Cloud Atlas (2012)



For the very first time, I think Cloud Atlas movie did a very good job in mixing up all the scene from different timeline & somehow it makes the whole movie makes sense. For me, I am very confusing with some part of the movie while I watching it, & I need plenty of time to digest the whole story by spiting the story up to one by one.

The coolest part of this movie is at (refer from the image below) 2321: After The Fall & 1973 San Francisco, because I just like it! And somehow I can't explain the reason why! Maybe 2144 Neo Seoul is too cruel & 1849 South Pacific story line is too boring? But, the story of 1849 South Pacific is kinda interesting at the end, and practically the whole movie end in a very interesting way.

Graph introduction about compilation of actor & actress across the whole timeline in this movie. I didn't realize Tom Hanks was a Hotel Manager and Halle Berry was Jocasta Ayrs in 1936 Scotland, it's totally mind blown when I check on IMDb.

Scene above mentioning about mass producing clone of labour, at the end how they are going to settle these clone (who wear white in color robes). It is like abomination and kind off sick, it is also reflecting the corruption and misuse of technology in the future.

This movie is very unique, especially there is different kinds of element such as comedy in 2012 England, Romance, Sci-Fi in the furture 2144 & 2321. Somehow all the scene from different timeline is linked together, at the same time it is very confusing. It is not suitable for people who don't really interest in superb long length movie with mix and match scene from different timeline, and this movie include the elements of 18sx which means people who under 18 is not suitable to watch this movie. Thanks to Malaysia censorship, sex + kissing scene and some unrelated (nothing to do with sex & kiss) got censored. If you want to watch the full length movie, I suggest you to search it and watch watch it via online.

My rating: 7/10

Thanks for reading, by Kian Fai.
