"Cloud Atlas was a very well made movie but unlike most of the "simultaneous stories that all come together at the end" type of movies, this one just didn't. I'm still unclear as to the point of it all.
Another issue I had was a general feeling of goofiness. Sure, the Cavendish story was pure comedy but the rest of the stories just didn't feel serious enough to me.
It carried my attention for the 172 minutes well enough and it was entertaining. I just expected more of a pay off at the end.
