Everybody curse Tom Hooper! Everybody feel the gloom! Everybody give thumbs down to the Master of the Zoom!

Badass Digest

Any heart, any familiarity in LES MISERABLES is due solely to the actors, and remains in spite of Hooper's best efforts.

By the time Amanda Sieyfried and Eddie Redmayne were warbling a love song at each other within seconds of meeting, I was ready to give in to my bladder.

A musical with overwhelming theatricality trusted to a cast at best sporadically capable of performing their parts on the multiple levels necessary to actually do their jobs right.

The Popcorn Junkie

Breaks a record for climbing to the apex of movie musicals. Unfortunately, it's done within the first hour of proceedings and the slide back to the bottom is a laborious walk through the famous stage musical's song book.

One would be hard-pressed to describe this, despite the wealth of beauty on display, as anything but an ugly film, shot and cut ineptly.

Overstuffed, dreary and dripping with sickening sentimentality, what starts promisingly soon becomes a two-and-a-half hour struggle to stay awake.

This is a Sing-A-Long Review. Press play on the backing track to "I dreamed a dream" before reading.

It could have worked if Hooper had taken a bold strimmer to the structure. Instead, this Les Mis feels as dogmatic as Javert, and as cheesy as old brie.

Director Tom Hooper piles one terrible decision upon another, with the result being a movie so overbearingly maudlin and distorted that it's one of 2012's most excruciating film experiences.

Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway provide some winning musical moments, but overall Tom Hooper's film version is lumbering and drab.

OK! Magazine

While there's some value in making a slavish adaptation of a near-universally beloved stage musical, sticking to all the trappings of the play is a sure path to making the film feel like a translation rather than a similarly inspired production.

I feel like one of those reality show judges, sadly grimacing as I deliver the news. Audience boos me. How could I not like this? After all, everybody's TRYING SO HARD!!!!

After Hathaway's early high point, it starts to feel numbing ...

Les Misérables is as sodden as a tear-filled hankie. Director Hooper gets bogged down by the bulk of his movie.

a maudlin act of white-noise desperation, underscored by director Tom Hooper's inability to discern the difference between quiet and loud - not just musically, but as a storyteller and dramatist.
