The Greatest Showman 2017

Boffo old fashioned entertainment. This musical has powerful singing, great dancing, colorful costumes (and characters), great acting and an entertaining story. See it while it is still on the big screen to send Hollywood a message that we love to see movies that entertain at the movie house. 10/10

Wow! I loved this musical! I truly felt the whismy and magic that Barnum was trying to convey in his original shows. Breathtaking effects, catchy songs and "freaks" you want to love!

Hands down, the best thing I've ever watched. Please see this film.

This was an amazing musical. Hugh Jackman performed great, but the thing that gave me goosebumps was the song and performance of the "This Is Me" song.

We expected a lot more from this movie… maybe we were biased as so many people told us it's such a great movie, so we expected a lot.
But altogether the whole story was flat and so predictable. The soundtrack… every song sounds the same, so there's no distinction.
Effects are well made and actually the only impressive thing about this movie.

This is what a musical should be like. Fast paced, beautifully executed and choreographed and the music is astounding but The performances are what makes it all come together. Loved it!

Fun and entertaining movie with an interesting story, good singing and choreography. With Hugh Jackman being great in it and the stunning visuals I ended up leaving the cinema surprised and with a smile on my face. All in all, it is a great movie.

Holy hell the music is absolutely amazing. All the performers can sing beautifully. I am sooooo impressed.

Went in with great expectations and still I was pleasantly surprised. That happens very rarely. A truly enjoyable movie and one of the best I’ve seen recently. Everything about it is perfection. I already know I’ll be rewatching it many times.

This movie is terrible, not only ignored the real history of P. T. Barnum, the music is nauseating, it tries to be a feel good movie with a message but just ends up being a cheap musical production, with no art or story in it.

Saw it's about 8 point everywhere, excited a lot because it's hard to find something to watch nowadays. Omg the intro is awesome, excited even more! Then the girl arrives and i expect the boy to talk.

In that moment, the moment that boy started to sing instead talking i wanted to destroy the holywood with nuke. When this musical fashion will end!

People should talk on movies not sing!

I hate musicals!

I just loved this movie. Everything in it was beautiful.

I don’t know about the real story so I’ll only talk about the film: this is the worst thing I’ve watched for a very long time. It took me 5 tries to finish it. It was even painful. I love musicals, really I DO, but this... every piece of melody sounded exactly the same as the previous one and I had the feeling every act was starting somewhere in the middle of the song. The general impression was thus that I was watching the trailer of the film instead of the actual thing. For 2 hours. The story was very predictible and it gave the characters no time to develop. Finally, what about the women? Even blander; mere decoration. By the way, am I the only one who thinks the acrobat girl looks (and sings) exactly like Vanessa Hudgens?

In conclusion, I never expected I would like a film about a circus and I was right. It doesn’t work for me. In the end, it’s just nicely trying to introduce a man who gathers people to make a freak show and trains animals for such a purpose— even when they are (terribly) designed by a computer program.

Not great, if you actually know anything about pt Barnum. the acting was okay but not amazing and the characters were not that memorable.

Love this film. The music is just amazing and the story is quite nice too.

The songs are very good.The story is interesting.Overall Great Movie

If you're into musicals, then this movie is a perfect fit for you. I only rated this at 5 because I'm not into musicals, I was hoping for more of a biography/drama.

loading replies

Better than expected. Music is pretty good, but the story is more geared to the music than an actual storyline. Great time waster. 8/10

When I first heard of this movie, I refused to watch it because it's a musical. But it's more than that; it's an eye-opener. Furthermore, it teaches you a life lesson. I admit I sang along.

An amazing musical and Hugh Jackman is amazing in the movie,one movie I'll be buying on Blu-ray..10/10

great musical work, but could have given better plot.

I watched this musical yesterday in cinema.. Not my favorite type of movie but deserve 9/10

loading replies

This was one of my most anticipated movies, in a long time. I was so excited, and still am! Absolutely loved it. I didn't want it to end. I had been listening to the soundtrack a few weeks before I saw the movie, and I must say, the movie is just as great as the soundtrack.

The cast was perfect, and it truly felt like they were a family. I find the story to be so inspiring and wonderful, I want everybody to watch it, and learn from it, and enjoy it, and love it, and dance to it, and feel it, and I just really really like this movie.

I am already planning my second visit to the cinema to see this.

I took my wife and 6 children to see this film. We all loved it. The songs became a constant sound around my home. I thought the story line lacked consistency, but the songs made it fantastic.

One of the best movies I have seen in a while. loved the music, song and choreography. stunning movie with lovable cast and plot!

This is the musical that I have been waiting for! Despite all the great critics reviews, LaLaLand was a bust. The singing was mediocre, the dancing was mediocre and the story itself was boring. But this movie is everything that I was expecting and more! The actors were great, the singing was amazing and the story was enoyable. And above all else, the songs were well-written and will have you singing long after you've left the theater. There have been some complaints that the story itself is highly fictionalized, well, it's a musical, of course its fictionalized!

Full-on, over-the-top, musical which despite any reservations I may have had, left me tapping my feet and grinning like an idiot. Hugh Jackman on fine form.

Great movie left me with a smile on face..Nice directing,costumes and plot was ok..I Couldn't take my eyes of the screen for two hours so i suppose is a must see! 7.7/10

loading replies

I can't be the only one who really can't stand Hugh Jackman's acting when he has a REAL role. He's ok as an action hero, but I can always see him acting when he takes on a challenging role. His singing is mediocre and really I find that most the time I just want him to shut up and close his mouth. The story was ok, but he spoilt it for me.

loading replies

the music doesn't stick with the story and it's essential for a musical... the story is not original.. it seems like a disney, mostly with zac efron and zendaya, hugh jackman remains very charming and I'll let these 5 stars for him. it's not a bad movie, but it's far to be a really good one too

You know if it's a good musical if it moves you from start to finish. Last watched a good musical was Moulin Rouge & Les Miserables.

Goddammit, I so wanted to hate this film... but couldn't stop myself from loving it. I dare you to watch!

Hugh Jackman does a great job in his role of this movie. I enjoyed the story, and the pacing of the movie.

For me, musicals tend to take away from a story more than add to it, and I felt the same way with this one.

If you're into musicals, this was one of the better ones I've seen, otherwise I'd say this one is skippable.

6.5/10

Great soundtrack and choreography that give audience a exciting experience.But,the it was just too straight forward that make the story too simple and light.You might enjoy this if you searching for a exciting musical experience with a light hearted family friendly story.But if you looking for a movie that can do best in both musical experience and story,La La Land is the answer.

A good musical but has a bad and predictable plot

Really love this film, but more so the soundtrack! Absolutely outstanding!

Everyone comparing to La La Land and all I could see was Sing! But the songs here were the best in a musical.

I've never seen anything quite remarkable as this one. I've loved every single moment on this film. Beautiful.

This was, to be honest, the best musical I've seen since I was a kid and I was watching High School Musical. Just amazing and too complicate to review more than this. I love it.

This movie is Perfect! I love it. The best Good Friday of my life!

I originally rated this as "Fair (6)" but as I've watched it more since buying it on digital (my kids have it on OVER AND OVER), this movie has REALLY grown on me as I've discovered its layers on repeated viewings.

It's a GREAT family movie with catchy, enjoyable songs, a good message, terrific pacing, beautiful people, emotion, drama, humor, great cinematography and some incredible voices! Loved all the casting choices. Rebecca Ferguson has never been more beautiful and (even though she didn't ACTUALLY sing her song), she acted the h*** out of that on-stage performance.

Sure, it's not historically accurate--but it's not made as a biography. It's a legend, if anything. So once you can enjoy it the way a child would enjoy it, it's almost magical.

As P.T. Barnum himself said to the joyless critic in the movie, "The smiles on the peoples' faces as they leave are real."

Such good film and very inspiring. Minus point because you can already expect what will happen in the story.

The late, great comedian Patrice O'Neil used to say that he wished that he knew how to watch a film before he started watching the film. I think about this now and then when I watch a movie. In my head I am an armchair director and I want to take in the whole film. At times it really robs me of the enjoyment that I otherwise might have had.

I think that this film is a great example of me over-thinking. I probably spent half the film trying to figure out where they were going and if all of the events were true and.... stuff. And then I finally realized that the film wasn't so much about Barnum the man as it was about how so many of us struggle to escape our lot in life. It felt very much like a mix between Les Miserables and Rent. It might not be the best film ever made but by the end I was smiling and I felt like the whole experience was worthwhile.

This was hands down my favourite film ever. I loved every single second of it, the sheer joy of watching it was next to nothing else. Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams the songs, the costumes, the dances, the sets. Absolutely incredible.

I love musicals in general, and this was definitely one of the bests I've ever seen. Absolutely fascinating movie with incredible songs, a powerful story and great acting. It's meant for the big screen. This movie is magic.

I usually go for other types of movies but this was AMAZING! I've seen Les Miserables where Hugh Jackman was, again, mind blowing. Keala Settle, her voice, WOW <3

this movie has one of the best soundtracks i've ever heard

loading replies

found it to be utterly dull, the songs all had the same 80's base track, there was no drama, It feels like there's 50 minutes worth of character development sat on the cutting room harddrive waiting to be added back in for an extended edition.
when something did happen, a big happy tune was sung and we very nicely merged to a new scene , it's almost like "click" the musical, if PT just sang during the bits he didn't like. he'd skip to a good bit.
*I couldn't care enough to hold my need to go for a pee near the end.

Honestly, I felt that the story line is meh but the songs are what took me by surprise. It's really rare to to have more than one great hit in a musical and almost all the songs in this show is amazing! I'm also very impressed with Hugh Jackman's singing. Finally, the shed his operatic voice and did these songs justice by singing more contemporarily. Great job!

THE MORE I THINK ABOUT THIS THE BETTER IT GETS! (ALSO THE MUSIC IS SO GOOD GAH)

As someone who loathes musicals, I kept wanting to hate this film but was only partially successful. Some of the musical numbers were even not terrible.

loading replies

Best musical that I've seen since "Moulin Rouge"!

loading replies

I expected more from this film. In my opinion the dialogue it's too simple and not very original. It is true there are two good songs, like "This is me", but the rest of them are not really memorable (Not like the songs from Lalaland that you could not avoid singing once you have whatched the film). In conclusion, It's an entertaining film to go watch with your familiy or friends but not The Musical of the year I was expecting to watch.

i don't usually watch musicals but this one was amazing i definitely will watch this movie again.

4/10

I´m not gay enough to enjoy so many musical numbers in such a short time

loading replies

A fantastic musical that should have been a theatrical production, before being made into a movie. This movie gives us outstanding performances by Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Keala Settle and Zendaya, however, the stiffness of the camera and the blatant use of CGI in some of the scenes hurts the movie a bit. Regarding the Music and the score, this is ceartain to have some serious nominations (and maybe wins) in the most important awards ceremonies, the musical numbers are amazing, even though, in my opinion, the option to dub Rebecca Ferguson's performance of Never Enough ended up hurting an otherwise perfect song!
8/10

I've never been a musical fan until La La Land. So I thought maybe I should give all new musicals a shot but I think I've been spoiled by just how great La La Land is. This is a decent film. Some of the songs were great and some were just ok. Hugh Jackman was good. Worth a watch if you want to see some singing and dancing.
