Les Miz is one of the best movie versions of a musical EVER

By Craig Stuart Wilson
Written December 26, 2012
I've seen the Broadway or London version of this musical at least five times. What Tom Hooper accomplished with the large screen is to give you the close-ups and panoramic views of Paris that you can't get in a live production. Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway are surely going to get Academy Award nominations. Sasha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter are fiendishly delightful. Russell Crowe holds his own, although he couldn't perform this role in a stage version as his voice isn't strong enough. Still, it's a wonderful story told wonderfully!

True to Broadway production

A superb production of the stage musical. Makes it more personal and meaningful. The live singing performances are awesome and bring tears to your eyes. For a major Les Miserables fan it is THE BEST! Oscar worthy for Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and for Best Picture! Will definetly see it again!

Bring the Kleenex

An amazing performance by all - the raw emotion that was displayed in this film brought such a credibility to the delivery of the story, it's characters and the inner values of the story. Most striking is the message of Val Jean's steadfastness to remember the grace he received and to pay that grace forward, replacing the bitterness and hate. It isn't easy to watch - times during that period were desperate and they don't sugar coat that - but sometimes we need a dose of reality to make us understand how much we take for granted. We left the theater humbled.

Anne Hathaway has a stunning performance

Hathaway has really come along as an actress and she's gorgeous. The rest is so-so... I've been to a fair number of live musicals, but I had a difficult time sitting through this movie. Some performances were cringe-worthy and lackluster.

Definitely a must-see

Hugh Jackman's acting is stunning as always. But the surprise in this movie, is Anne Hathaway. She blew me away; I honestly did not think she had it in her. She is always cast in these chick-flick-like silly rolls. She deserved that Oscar. Great Job! It was a really good version of this Masterpiece. It kept my attention the whole time and did not lag. Definitely worth watching at least once. 7.5 out of 10! Excellent!
