  1. Quality
  2. Perfect 5.0

    This is, with no doubt, a true masterpiece. This has to be the most complex and interesting children’s movie I’ve ever seen. I don’t even know if I can call it a kid’s movie at all. There are aspects to this movie that are so genius and so creative that I was glued to the screen. Going into the movie, I thought it would either be a cheesy fantasy movie or some dumb adventure movie, but I was shocked to see how good it really was. Martin Scorsese creates such a wonderful atmosphere in 1930’s Paris, and really dazzles the audience with compelling story. I don’t want to delve into what happes that is so amazing, because the surprise is so wonderful (for true film fans especially). All I’ll say is it turns into one of the most intriguing history lessons ever. Also, the use of 3D was shockingly amazing. I saw it twice in 3D, and both times I really felt sucked into the beautiful scenery, and sometimes I forgot I was watching a movie. This is not a movie to miss. Don’t doubt the power of Scorsese!!!!!!!

  3. Perfect 5.0

    EVERYONE gives PHENOMENAL performances. This is the best performance by a child actor since the girl Pan’s Labyrinth. Ben Kingsley is amazing at playing the old retired father figure. Sacha Baron Cohen plays a brilliant villain (who has some hilarious moments). Chloe Moretz plays the perfect adventurous girl. And finally, Asa Butterfield plays a believable orphaned boy in Paris. Truly fantastic work.

  4. Male Stars Perfect 5.0
  5. Female Stars Perfect 5.0
  6. Female Costars Perfect 5.0
  7. Male Costars Perfect 5.0
  8. Perfect 5.0

    Everything in this department is complete perfection. The direction is something so be noted- Scorsese really knows how to compel an audience. This may even be one of his best works. The writing is spectacular. And finally, the music and visuals dazzle. They complement each other so perfectly, making this a beautiful film to enjoy.

  9. Direction Perfect 5.0
  10. Play Perfect 5.0
  11. Music Perfect 5.0
  12. Visuals Perfect 5.0
  13. Content
  14. Tame 1.0
  15. Sex Innocent 1.0
  16. Violence Gentle 1.0
  17. Rudeness Polite 1.0
  18. Glib 1.5

    There are definitely some unrealistic situations.

  19. Circumstantial Natural 1.0
  20. Biological Natural 1.0
  21. Physical Surreal 2.4
