(Director Tom) Hooper...cribs from musicals ranging from Oliver! to Cabaret to Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He misses the energy of those films, and doesn't accomplish the immediacy of Les Miz's stage incarnation.

Tom Hooper's direction is an aesthetic crime.

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.

This "Miz" ain't nothin' but a miss.

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

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

The [film's] conclusion might be that tragedies deserve sympathy, not judgement...and I wish I could come to this conclusion myself but I saw a film directed by Tom Hooper.

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

As Fantine, musical theater's favorite emo chick, Hathaway blows away whatever else is supposed to be going on.

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

Riveting and incredibly entertaining...

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.

A gorgeous film if not quite a classic, "Les Misérables" 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.'
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

A esperança é que, depois de Os Miseráveis, alguém tome o megafone de Tom Hooper e o proíba de entrar em outro set de filmagem.
