I have read some of the reviews.
They seem to be ok with the film.
nobody dislikes it or has found any majot fault with it.
Every one seems to be praising Ann Hathaway's performance. ( There should be an oscar nomination)


Badass Digest's review seems to cover most of the general sentiment towards the film. Apparently Hooper's hurt the film through his direction. If that's the case, I'd love to hear what MGamesCook has to think of it once he sees it, being so particular about the nature of direction and all.

Post Re: Les Miserables
I finally got to see it tonight.
I liked it.

I have some issues with the way some of the shots are filmed but other than that it was spot on the money.
I liked the way film was edited in that "Do You Hear the People Sing" was used far more during the film than when it is during the musical.
When I was leaving the cinema, I was able to gauge the audience's mood and everyone was uplifted and were is a very happy mood.
This bodes well for the quality of the film. Perhaps another indication of the films fine accomplishments is that even though the film was 157 minutes long it was not an ordeal to sit through it. In fact, the time flew quite quickly.


I was especially impressed with the Russel Crowe role. In the film he is more humanized and because of this his role has way more depth.
Anne Hathaway is very good but I don't think that this is an Oscar wothy role. I don't believe that film will win all that much Oscar wise.
I would heartily recommend this film to everyone.
