Misnamed story
4 March 2020 | by jamalking15See all my reviews

The acting and casting was good but the story was changed too much to call this Les Mis. Disappointing that Jean Valjean's character and motivations were changed too much. Javert was well acted, but again the character was written here too shallow. Enjolras was overplayed and made to appear more valiant than Hugo wrote him.

Should have given the story another name but not Hugo's story. Davies, the rewriter, should me made to apologize publicly and the Director should go back to horror movies only.
