Cloud Atlas (A mind-boggling film)

At long last, The Wachowskis are back! Their upcoming film, Cloud Atlas, is set to be shown in the big screen late this year. I expect that this will be a good comeback movie for them. Their remake of the “Speed Racer” didn’t really bring them the kind of success that they enjoyed with their previous works “The Matrix Trilogy” and “V for Vendetta”.
The film is adopted from the novel, of the same name, written by David Mitchell. A brief synopsis describes it as “An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present, and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution”.
I think the ideas presented in this film can be simply put as this: “A person’s life is interconnected with another person. No matter what reincarnation or what life time they are born into, they will always cross paths with that same person whom they have previously met in a past life time. Their actions in the past and present will have a significant contribution on the life that they will be reaping in the future.”
This movie is actually one of those mind-fuck films. It makes you think, it makes you question reality and it makes you say “Yeah, what if”. Which I think, is one of the reasons that make it really good. I find films like these very enjoyable. You cannot simply fathom on how this movie will end. And judging by the length of the trailer, this is one of those “3 hour long” types of movies.
The casting is nice, all star as how they refer to it, which features Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving and Jim Broadbent. How awesome can it get? As far as I remember, I have never seen a Tom Hanks film that is a flop. Any film which stars him is really good, plus he is really an astounding actor. I am counting on seeing another classic Tom Hanks performance. It is also interesting to see him with Halle Berry. If my memory serves me right I have not seen any film which casts both of them. For sure, you also have to watch out for Jim and Hugo’s performance on this one.
I am eager on how they are going to present the jumps in life times. I just love that they really elaborated on these and I hope that they presented in a very nice manner. It spans from the past “tribal” time to the present “modern day” time and to the “futuristic and robotic” time.
I simply cannot wait for this to be shown. This is definitely one of those films which is really enjoyable to watch on the big screen.
