What the Critics say

Laetitia Pople 'Hugo' bekoor met onskuldige fantasie.
Pete Hammond Hugo is not only a great family film—it is a great film, period. Magical and imaginative, this eye-popping masterpiece from director Martin Scorsese will transport audiences to a place they won't believe.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Hugo is unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget, family epic in 3-D, and in some ways, a mirror of his own life.
James Berardinelli With Hugo, Martin Scorsese has accomplished what few in Hollywood are willing to try: make a movie for adults that arrives without sex, violence, or profanity and earns a PG-rating. It's a fairy tale for mature viewers, but the airy exterior hides emotional depth.
Peter Travers Hugo will take your breath away. It truly is the stuff that dreams are made of.
C. Fuchs While I'm not sure how I'd feel on a second pass of watching it (due to some fairly slow passages and some length that could have been truncated), the first time around is quite a charming, engaging and entertaining delight about movies of yesteryear and their effect on those who made and saw them.
Tomatometer Hugo is an extravagant, elegant fantasy with an innocence lacking in many modern kids' movies, and one that emanates an unabashed love for the magic of cinema.
