“..visually, Les Miserables is a splendid spectacle, with set and costume design unparalleled in any 2012 period piece..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
3 of 4

“..there's no lip-synching here..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
3 of 4

“..the utter lack of modulation - and the near-complete absence of spoken dialogue, just like onstage - makes for pretty wearying viewing as the movie works its way into its third hour..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..the quality of the sound recording is exceptional, too, as crisp as in the best concert films and live album..”
by Scott Foundas [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..the movie drags itself down..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
3 of 4

“..panoramic shots of the poor, faces encrusted with sores and grime, begging for pennies from the rich, drive home the desperation of 19th-century France..”
by Karen D'Souza [San Jose Mercury News]
3.5 of 4

“..overflows with humor, heartbreak, rousing action and ravishing romance. Damn the imperfections, it's perfectly marvelous..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
4 of 5

“..fortunately, this sprawling epic is well-anchored. There cannot be a better big-screen showman than Jackman..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..aside from that opening scene, you will not be cinematically edified. This is a bad movie..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
