Movie Review: HUGO

Hugo is about a boy that becomes an orphan and ends up living in a train station taking care of the clocks.  A job that he loves and makes sure every clock is correct every single day.  But there is something else about this boy named Hugo, he is in search of the reason why his father died and everything lies in this small journal that his father wrote.  His father left behind the sketchings to fix this metal man called an "automatan".  Hugo steals parts from this toy store within the train station, to where the store owner catches him and takes this special journal.  And thus the mystery begins to solve how the toy store owner links to this "automatan".  Hugo and the toy store's god-daughter work together in fixing the automatan figure, discovering who the real toy store owner is, and realizing that everyone has a purpose and if they aren't doing it, they are broken.

This movie is very clean, I would recommend it to the ages of 8 and up, due to the length of the movie.

Christian View Points from the movie: 
1. You have a God-Given Purpose
"For I know the plans I have for you, declared the Lord.  Plans to prosper you and not to harm, to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

"A spiritual gift is given to each of us, so we can help each other." I Corinthians 13:7

2. We are all part of the Body (or Machine as stated in the movie)
"The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body.  So it is with the Body of Christ." I Corinthians 13:12
