Les Misérables (2012)
Cinematic-performance wise - great. NOT the singing.
Well, opening sequence was awesome, that is until I heard Russell Crowe sing. Never again let him do high pitch again and why director made actors sing who can't sing is beyond my understanding, especially in a musical, duh.
Performance was over the top great from ALL the actors, Sacha Baron appearance - great success!
- Russel performs greatly, though cant sign well higher tones.
- Jackman, can sing and perform, good job man. - Hathaway sings well and over-performs as always, unattractive as she is, she gets the job done.
Overall, I really like musicals, most of songs are under average standard, only few of them are great tunes with unique melodies, and I think I heard ABBA here too.
My recommendation - if you like musicals with almost no dialog, watch this, great cinematic experience. Music orchestra IS awesome.
Crowd song signing is actually the best. Costumes and clothing - almost PERFECT.
And for the real experience, please watch 1998 movie, Les Miserables with Liam Neeson.
Quite a good ride, nevermind the misguided reviewers
OK, I believe the movie deserves a solid 6.6 or 7 score.
The little screaming reviewers here saying movie is "too slow", "overrated", "silent" or "too violent" can go review cliché usual action or buy a bag of popcorn for summer sessions.
I think the movie does create a certain culture, certain feel and uniqueness. Ryan Gosling's performance was top notch as usual, (therefore high ratings too) movie just takes you for a good inner characters ride.
It is exactly that kind of a movie where the less dialog and words - the better.
Deserves a very good watch, it just might put you into a short term depression a bit.
Taken 2 (2012)
Painful to watch if you expected what was in the original
What a load of nonsense this one is. Descent action movie, though a terrible, hollow, empty sequel.
All the camera work and action-like scenes are there, but they turned it into a standard exhausting Hollywood action movie formula. How could Besson write this repetition? Now, biggest load of b.s - its a cliché of a movie mimicking the original, but its all in reverse now!
Make your own daughter throw actual grenade by instructing her over the phone? What a nice overprotective father who cares so much. Script is total waste.
Be ready for a lot of repetition from the original, mirror like scenes.
Director/writer figured what made original a success, we going to stick to it with a cheap twist.
Very not bad
Actually, people giving this movie a bad review might be angry religious people,( the idea of maker being extraterrestrial in nature) or people who expected all the answers in the movie.
Good cast, good acting, great effects, and - of course - very original story, something you have not seen or heard before. Whoever complains about lack of complete story or ending, go watch the movies you are used too - a happy end Hollywood movie that makes sense for kids and is predictable.
Good work was put into this movie, and it WILL BE a must see sci-fi classic sooner or later.
Is that tobacco in the respirator? - classic line right there.
