It is indeed a terrific film. Probably one of the best that I have seen in long, long time. To say I was blown away would be a complete understatement. Yes, it was that good!
I don't care what folks say, but The Wolverine can sing! If he doesn't win an Oscar for Best Performance then something is just not right with the world. Hugh Jackman was amazing! His performance was something to be in awe of. What an actor!
And Anne Hathaway was incredible! What a tremendous job she did as Fantine. Mesmerizing is too light a word. She cast a spell that made it impossible to take your eyes off her.
Eddie Redmayne was stupendous as Marius! Samantha Barks as Eponine was phenomenal! Their heart breaking performances will tug at your eye balls and force you to tears.
And what about little Gavroche played by Daniel Huttlestone? Fabulous! This little guy will charm the heck out of you.
I really don't know enough adjectives to express how much I loved this film.
Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter were splendid as Thenardier and Madam Thenardier. Simply hilarious!
Treat yourself to this spectacle! It will be worth your every penny.
