Entertainment Fuse Review: Les Misérables

Entertainment Fuse writes:
While most movie adaptations of musicals use the big screen to tear down the confines of the stage, Hooper zooms in even closer — literally. With such powerful and reliable material, our scrutiny falls on his direction, which chooses to highlight the actors above all else. The result is that Les Mis offers some of the very best movie musical performances ever, especially from Jackman and Hathaway, as Hooper's technique leaves them nowhere to hide. (Cinema, Les Miserables) 8.0/10
