Les Misérables | ★★★★★★★★★
here). So it would be accurate to say that I love the Les Misérables saga. My problem with this movie was how much it was hyped before I saw it. One reviewer called it the best musical movie ever. Even so, I greatly enjoyed seeing this big screen epic. The story still captivates my heart. I wept when Ann Hathaway sang I dream a Dream. My soul arose within me when Hugh Jackman sang several of the songs - I love the way that Jean Valjean is written as a man of faith and integrity. Other singers were outstanding as well. Even Russell Crowe's singing was better than I expected. All that said, I do think that you might be a tad disappointed if you are expecting the operatic voices that accompany the Broadway Musical. Movies are generally more about acting and actors rather than singing and singers. I loved Les Misérables, recommend it to you and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★★.
