Les Miserables Review | Metal Arcade

Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables is a triumph.

Metal Arcade:

There was a time when musicals ruled the box office. With films like West Side Story, Singin’ in the Rain, The Sound of Music and countless animated Disney films, many musicals have collected mounds of box office cash and garnered numerous awards throughout the years. In our more cynical age of cinema, though, musicals have nearly faded out of existence in light of the recent trend towards dark and realistic tales. Still, every so often there comes a musical that is released to much critical acclaim and/or commercial success, with recent examples being Mamma Mia, Tangled and The Muppets. (Cinema, Les Miserables) 9.0/10
