LES MISERABLES Movie Review




It is a love story. It is a story of station. It is a story of life defining choices. It is a story of survival. It is a story of redemption, full of faith. Faith is the underlying current and theme of this glorious film. It is entrancing, grandiose, and, oh yeah, in case you didn’t know, it is 99.9% sung. Yes, this is a full musical masterpiece. For that reason, this movie is geared more for mature audiences and I don’t mean in age. The title of this ageless story really says it all and very well describes the majority of the characters in it. In this big screen version we find a cast that successfully interpreted the true spirit of this tale and transmits that spirit to the audience. From the commencement, Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean mesmerizes with a look we have never seen him have before. As the main character in our journey, he gives a performance to top pretty much all his prior performances. He really demonstrates that casting him in this role was no mistake. The next major character is performed by Russell Crowe as Javert. No doubt he is one of the finer actors of our time, but in a musical? I’ll tell you that he did quite well and was able to draw out the kind of emotions one would have toward any correctly portrayed antagonist. READ FULL LES MIRABLES REVIEW >>
