I loved it!
I am not the musical guy. I do not like the music, it feels so soft - so mainstream - so "happy everywhere" or "sadness overload".
And I think that musicals should be watched live in a theatre and not in a movie, because the story, songs etc. are written to be watched live. Just like movies should not be performed in theatre.
But I have to admit: Les Misérables was great! The actresses and actors were amazing, the music wonderful. But you have to watch the movie with good headphones - or if u lucky with a good sound system. :o)
The acting of Anne Hathaway was amazing. Big love! Just watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzNVmZfNoa8
The interpretation and renewed songs are perfect. Just Russel Crowe potential of singing was not the best, but it did not bother me at all. One of my favourite scenes / sing parts by the way is this clip. Sorry for the subs there:
So even if you are not into musicals, give recommend to give it a try and you might get surprised and you gonna like it.
9 out of 10 points for this "movie". But if you didn't like the two youtube links I put here - you better won't watch the movie.
Seriously dull. Really did not enjoy this!!!
The movies was really good, especially because the music is awesome (I was afraid they wouldn't use the original scores!).
Not all of the actors are good singers too. Especially Amanda Seyfried is horrible (she doesn't even look that good :( ). I didn't expect Russell Crowe to be in this movie and he also wasn't too good a singer but at least he tried ;)
I have to admit, even though Anne Hathaway did her job well enough, I don't understand how she got an Academy Award for that – looks like no serious competitors ;)
This is the only movie that I've ever seen that when it was over I wanted to stand up in the theater to clap and cheer. It is absolutely awesome.
O filme é ótimo! É uma grande adaptação do musical, com cenas cativantes. Retrata bem a vida dos mais pobres na França séc. XIX, suas revoluções, enfim. Está presente também o humor sensacional do casal Thénardier. Destaque para a cena espetacular de Anne Hathaway cantando "I Dreamed a Dream". Bom filme.
A couple of the songs got me, and the performances of Ms. Hathaway and Ms. Seyfried were impressive, but this story does not work in 2016, or 2012 for that matter. Also, I feel sorry for Mr. Crowe. Someone should have told him not to "sing".
