At the movies: Hugo


This movie seems to be of two minds.  The first half is a kids' adventure movie in a train station and the second half is a documentary on film history.  The 3-D effects are, when they don't really mess with your eyesight, not worth the extra money.  They don't add to the basic movie.  They snowflakes were horrible.

My wife, when Ben Kingsley was on screen, couldn't think of anything but "The House of Sand and Fog" and so was not really in to his parts of the movie.

If I could see the movie without the 3-D, I'd give it a 3.
