At the end of the day you get nothing but boredom!
Truly awful, poorly paced, film adaptation of a musical. Bad direction, cinematography, sets, costumes. The miniatures of Paris looked horrible. The sets looked cheap. No wonder the entire thing was shot in a series of nauseating close-ups. I like Hugh Jackman but If this is the performance of a lifetime he may need a couple more lifetimes to make up for it. He suffered from frame one to the dismal end and so did the audience. Worse was Russell Crowe who managed to look constipated for the entire film. And newsflash: He can't sing! Anne Hathaway can sing but she can't act. Why did they bother hiring Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen? They did nothing but mug in ugly costumes and wigs. Maybe the director thought it was a remake of Sweeney Todd? Three perfumers stood out: Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Samantha Barks as Eponine and Amanda Seyfried as Cosette. Poor Amanda Seyfried. She is the best part of two of the worst musicals of all time - this one and Mama Mia!
