3.5 of 4

“..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]

LATEST REVIEWS

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
