OSITF Movie Review: Les Misérables

Who knew that Wolverine could sing?

As a matter of fact, I believe I did:

I enjoyed Les Mis very much.  The last time I saw it was at the Queen's Theatre in the West End in London.  While the movie adaptation can't beat a live performance like that, it was still a lot of fun.

I was nervous about how Russell Crowe would do as Javert, but despite the throaty tone to his voice, he pulled it off very well.  Eddie Redmayne's performance as Marius actually stole the show at some points.

The movie is a hard PG-13, so while I do recommend seeing it, this isn't one to see with the kids.

  1. Russell Crowe just couldn't handle the necessary vocal for the emotion needed... that was a big flop for me. Adam Lambert (American Idol) really put down the entire cast and their singing abilities. I thought the others in the movie were quite strong and did an excellent job.
    I loved the movie, too. :-) Steve said it was good. That's high praise from him ;-)
