Les Misérables (2012) | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Deborah Ross The Spectator It's just so soaringly monotonous... And although hard-core fans will love this whatever, and good luck to them, I'd rather set fire to my own hair than ever have to sit through it again. It would be over quicker, at least. Sep 4, 2018 Full Review Les Misérables (2012) | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online While it isn't a consummate movie, Les Misérables will stir a younger generation of fans with its glitz and charm and perhaps pioneer a new style of movie musicals. Rated: C+ Sep 7, 2017 Full Review Les Misérables (2012) | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Larushka Ivan-Zadeh metro.co.uk Hugh Jackman delivers a muscular, earnest performance that holds together this diverse ensemble cast - which includes predictable but welcome comic relief from Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter - for the full 158min. Rated: 4/5 Sep 1, 2017 Full Review Les Misérables (2012) | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Dulcie Pearce The Sun (UK) This is a decidedly gritty and grounded adaptation, with Hooper’s assured direction capturing the horror and humanity of revolutionary France. Rated: 5/5 Feb 16, 2024 Full Review Les Misérables (2012) | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Hanna Flint The Sun (UK) This is a decidedly gritty and grounded adaptation, with Hooper’s assured direction capturing the horror and humanity of revolutionary France. Rated: 5/5 Feb 16, 2024 Full Review Les Misérables (2012) | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Hooper brings an appropriate sense of grandness to the musical [...] but overall, the creative choices call more attention to how it was made and distract from the powerful story.

Patricia The picture was SO clear and the sound perfection! Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/29/24 Full Review Grant H Aside from all the handheld shots and absence of wide shots for such a grand production, quite good. Way too much hate for Rusty. He was a good contrast to the Jacked Man. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review OmegaFred Loved it for the third time! The play was also very good! Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Julian Rex M With incredible cinematography and stirring musical performances, Les Misérables stands as a worthy adaptation of an incredible play, though its story could stand more structure as far as the progression of events are concerned. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/07/24 Full Review Eye C The musical by all means, a magnificent masterpiece of drama and love. Superb.
