CinemaBlend: Les Miserables Review

CinemaBlend: The first hour of Les Miserables might have the power to revive movie musicals for years. Filmed with Tom Hooper's unflinchingly intimate camera, with the likes of Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman and even Russell Crowe singing their hearts out, Les Miserables begins with a sweep of skill and emotion that sends chills, whether you're a die-hard musical theater fan or a skeptic waiting to be convinced. Anne Hathaway's performance as the doomed Fantine singing "I Dreamed A Dream" is the justly celebrated highlight, but everything in that first hour moves with energy and a sense of revival; you really never have seen a classic musical like this, and it's exhilarating. (Cinema, Les Miserables) 4/5
