Film Comment Magazine

Ultimately the film's choppy, camera-goes-anywhere approach works well in translating a play that was never all that interested in the movement of bodies anyway-only their martyrdom.

[Director Tom Hooper's] old fashioned take is frequently exhilarating and adamant in its unwavering desire to not be dolled up and be given a hip makeover.

If the entire film were as good as the first 30 minutes, it would easily be one of the year's best pictures.

standing as it does, nearly alone, one could certainly do worse than Hooper's brave and smart addition to the pantheon.

Within the first six numbers (in a musical containing 666 of them)... Fantine... has lost her job, her teeth, her hair, her prostitute-trainee badge and her life, but not before she sings the weepiest, most maddeningly catchy Susan Boyle song in the world

A guaranteed musical tear-jerker about a jerk who becomes a teary hero.

Beyond some pacing problems and a few questionable casting choices, the movie works as a towering, somewhat lumbering monolith of entertainment disbursement.

Director Tom Hooper ('The King's Speech'), for the most part, balances Hugo's gritty, if romantic tale, with the larger-than-life demands of an adaptation of the 1985 stage musical.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

A gorgeous film if not quite a classic, "Les MisÚrables" is a beautiful interpretation of the stage production based on the Victor Hugo novel. Not surprisingly, it's a sight to see, and it's directed by Tom Hooper, who helmed 'The King's Speech.'

Even if you're no fan of the show and think the lyrics doggerel and the music dreary, it's hard not to be bowled over by the barnstorming gusto shown by director Tom Hooper and his cast.

Hugh Jackman is sensational as zero to hero Valjean. Few can sing, dance and act like him. Here, he combines all three to glorious effect. And perhaps his most underrated quality is his greatest, Jackman is just so darn likeable.

Les MisÚrables has enough genuinely emotive power in its tank to guarantee a lot of people enormous pleasure.

Those who get on with tunes will barely notice the hours flying past. Of course, if you hate the show, you'll hate the film.

Rich Cline

Starting at full-emotion and never wavering for a moment, this huge movie adaptation of the long-running stage musical wears us out with its relentlessly epic approach.

It's Jackman, with his background in musical theatre, who stands out - somehow managing to anchor the whole thing and stop it becoming the bloated monster it threatens to be.

A bold filming of a theatrical classic, anyone with a fondness for the original production and a wee greet will lap this up.

The lavish, formidable production will delight fans but I doubt the uninitiated will be won over the barricade.
