I guess a story with alot of religious values in it would bore you

but what you say does have a point, but While Valijean does have the most development in the story. Marius love interest changes his focus and amkes him second guess this actions in the revolution. There are more developments for that Character as well but I would spoil it.

Javere (how ever you spell it) does have some development while his the law is my God dominates his view of the world Valijean's compansion and letting him go changes him.

I could go on and on about Characters changing they weren't just static.

But holy shit, that was AWFUL! And I mean AWFUL. I'm not talking about the acting, or the film itself, which was well made. The music was even pretty good. I'm talking about the story.


kindof agree. after a while, all the sad characters singing about regret became really draining. still got goosebumps often though, the songs were really strong.

hell, i even thought crowe was good, though i can see where people would think he sucked. he's the only person where they had to use cutaways since he coudlnt extend his notes very long.

i enjoyed the movie, but started checking out in the last third. i really liked how it was filmed, lost of close ups, but my set designer gf hated it for that reason.

I enjoyed it. It was my favorite movie of the year by far. It is apparent that the religious themes in a musical are much more apparent than in a non-musical. Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe were great. Eddie Redmayne was good. Anne Hathaway and Sam Barks were fabulous. Amanda Seyfried was good also. Sam Barks is gorgeous just saying.

Yeah, all the sadness is tiring, but you really do have to expect that going in. The title says it all.

I saw it last night, and it was a very good film adaptation of the musical. Jackman and Hathaway were very good. Crowe's singing was a bit disappointing, but I thought he did a good job overall.

"I Dreamed a Dream" and "Empty Chairs at Empty Tables" were near perfect.
