Brilliantly adapted by Miranda from Ron Chernow's straightforward biographical book, it is compelling theatre imaginatively directed by Tony winner Thomas Kail.

The dramatic themes here are big and eternal, and the way history played them out gives them a powerful thump.

It is and will be a classic. [Full review in Spanish]

There's a line where Hamitlon says "America, you great unfinished symphony, you sent for me", If ever there was a time for this song to be sung, it's now.

Hamilton is above all an exploration of the combo of tenacity, fallibility, and generosity we recognize as being uniquely American. Or used to be, at any rate.

Rarely does an uber-hyped pop culture phenomenon live up to the hype. Hamilton exceeds its insanely lofty reputation.

The film pulses with energy and life - and yes, this Revolution is genuinely cinematic, even if it is being televised.

The vast majority of this is accurate, which is refreshing...a lot of work was put behind it, and it felt real.

It's a concept, and this guy made it his way...if you go in for history, there's a possibility that you might be disappointed. But it's an amazing thing...

The filmed version of Lin-Manuel Miranda's joyfully groundbreaking, gleefully subversive hip-hop musical... captures the stage show's energy and excitement - and, thanks to artful up-close camerawork, throws in some extra intimacy, too.

This filmed version manages to brilliantly capture what is otherwise the once-in-a-lifetime experience of seeing these moments on stage.

The stakes are felt from the opening scene... The expertly-written musical numbers will stick with you for a long time.

Phenomenal.

This brought the energy. The choreography, the music...obviously there was a lot of hype around this, but this delivered.
July 27, 2020
If anything, the true magic act Miranda pulled off with his uber-popular creation is in how he managed to trick an entire country into thinking that "Hamilton," a self-absorbed, dramatically inept play, is more important than it actually is.
July 20, 2020
While no filmed play can capture the electricity of a live performance, "Hamilton" comes close.
July 17, 2020
A completely transformative experience. Not only because the Broadway show is an insanely good... maybe even perfect stage production, but because the filming of it is so fantastic as well.
July 16, 2020
Believe the hype. Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical about the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton is a huge achievement, and a hugely entertaining piece of work.
July 15, 2020
Somehow, despite all the popular adulation, critical acclaim, box office success, hot air and hype it turns out that Hamilton, as presented here, is...actually quite good.
July 14, 2020
Most of what's great about Hamilton on stage successfully makes the transition to television.
