Audience Reviews for Les Miserables
Pretty good movie. May have to read the novel...
My favorite telling of "Les Miserables" with Anthony Hopkins as Javert and Richard Jordan as Jean Valjean. It depicts many notable events from the book. I liked the grungy prison scenes at the beginning and the murky sewer chase at the end. The music is quite effective. It's a long story, but so was the book. It has a made-for-TV miniseries feeling to it. I wish a decent version of this would come to region 1 DVD.
Anthony Hopkins at his wicked best (again). He is changed but can't handle it. Through the course of life...forgiveness, love, selflessness, and humility, Jean shows Hopkin's character the truth of humanity...forgiveness and unconditional love.
