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!

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.

Gallantly holding the ramparts (while the vocal chords are stretched to [in some cases beyond] limit), our valiant forces of liberty, equality, and fraternity stand firm and in the end must prevail. This film is a forceful triumph of emotional will and passion. Well worth the time to experience it on the big screen.

I have seen the Broadway Show 4 times. I have seen the road show in Philly 3 times. Every version is different and every one in its own right is beautiful and moving and wonderful entertainment. The film version is also unique and wonderful. It is new and vital and stunning in it's production values. Ann Hathaway steals the show. Loved it!
