Storyline Heading
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, LES MISERABLES tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Ex-prisoner Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Musical Drama - This is a very faithful adaptation of the wildly popular stage musical based on the classic Victor Hugo novel, and so this film comes with all the high drama, romance, painful emotion, and--it must be noted--almost non-stop singing. Fans of Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe should be pleased, but the other known stars such as Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Helena Bonham Carter have much smaller roles. Violence, language, and adult subject matter make the film too intense for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good ...an engaging production that is guaranteed to enthrall audiences and become a holiday season commercial success. 20 years may have been a long time to wait for this motion picture but, with this result, who can dispute that it was worth it?

USA Today Full Review
Very Good For a 2½-hour movie, it's surprisingly well-paced and consistently enthralling. The look of the film is gorgeous, but Les Mis is a success primarily because of its superlative musical performances.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average There's no denying that "Les Misérables" ultimately succeeds in gathering up the audience -- even its most resistent members -- and transporting it on a stirring, swelling wave of feeling. But even when they're dabbing away tears during the last of the big numbers, they might wonder whether they're feeling less uplifted than run over.

NY Post Full Review
Good It all comes off as a picturesque 19th-century version of Occupy Wall Street — except with the authorities using real bullets. By this point (unlike in Victor Hugo's novel), the ubiquitous Javert's unending pursuit of Valjean has become almost as monotonous as Crowe's singing.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 158 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! Nearly everyone loved "Les Miserables." Just a few rated it as low as average.
For those of you who feel that you might not enjoy movies where all the dialog is sung, I can tell you from experience, you probably won't enjoy "Les Miserables." It had an interesting story and fantastic cinematography but it's just way too slow when you have to wait through many music scenes/songs.
