Les Misérables

12A
As rated by visitors:

The Oscar-winning director of The King’s Speech brings together a constellation of Hollywood stars for this magnificent adaptation of the timeless musical, with Hugh Jackman (The Prestige), Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises), Russell Crowe (Gladiator) and Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!) Set in the nineteenth century, the film sees ex-convict Jean Valjean (Jackman) sets out to make his fortune, doggedly pursued by police Inspector Javert (Crowe) – and there begins a spectacular story of unrequited love, broken dreams and redemption. Filmed in England and Paris, it featuresa dazzling score sung by the cast including classic songs ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ and ‘On My Own’. Hotly tipped to pick up some serious prizes at the Academy Awards, Les Misérables is a breath-taking cinematic spectacle and a triumph for British filmmaking.

My verdict of Les Mis: I really enjoyed it! Wolverine and Hathaway were brilliant but Russell Crowe should not have been involved - full-stop. The sarf Landan accent didn't do much to conjure up the atmosphere of the French revolution and I was expecting to Borat and Elena Bonham Carter to burst into a verse of 'Doing the Lambeth walk' at various points in the movie. But, I laughed and cried and sang in my head..It was moving and entertaining.

The Group were generally favourable to Les Miserables, with one person distinctly underwhelmed by the experience and with one or two others unimpressed by the music and to a certain degree the singing performances. Most felt the performances of Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway in particular were strong and their singing generally up to standard. Some felt that Russell Crowe's singing fell a little short, although he carried the day with his panache. A number in the group loved the whole experience and came out of the cinema somewhat tearfully!

Hi. Looking forward to seeing Les Mis soon especially as had a Christmas gift of membership renewal. However, I'm a bit concerned about the printed trailer which says the story is set in the 19th century during the French Revolution. Possibly some historical checking required!?
