It is true that the entire technical department is essential for 'The Great Showman' to become what it is, but everything would have been in vain without Jackman's fundamental presence. [Full Review in Spanish]

From the cast to the costumes to the music, The Greatest Showman has so much to offer and with a PG rating, it's the perfect movie to take the whole family to this holiday season

Hugh Jackman is asked to merely coast in a splashy but shallow picture that might as well have been called American Idle.

In the end, just like Barnum himself, it's all a fraud.

What annoys me The Greatest Showman is that it is very much the idea of musicals that persons who don't watch musicals have. It is light and bubbly, inoffensive, and without much depth.

An uplifting story with catchy music that could have developed more characters outside of its lead.
April 25, 2019
The movie did not work for me, almost at all.

If we, the audience, recognize that The Greatest Showman's filmmakers want to entertain not explain, then they've succeeded.
March 21, 2019
Has several elements that suggest the final piece will be stellar. However, it ultimately ends up failing to turn its promising individual components into an impressive whole.

Dazzling musical set-pieces and irresistible songs allow Jackman to deliver the showstopping performance he's been dying to for years. Enjoy the pure escapist fantasy - just don't think too hard about the man behind the humbug.

One cannot deny The Greatest Showman its merits, proving to be a perfect show for the season... a three-star film with a five-star performance from its ringmaster.
February 8, 2019
The Greatest Showman has some brightly-colored production numbers, some catchy-as-heck songs and a strong lead performance from [Hugh] Jackman. But while those pros are significant, they simply don't outweigh the many cons.

For all the musical fanboys and girls out there, start your New Year's out right.
January 19, 2019
A touching, inspiring and joyful razzle-dazzle entertainment for the entire family, just in time for the holidays.

The Greatest Showman is a triumph.
December 21, 2018
The film is flashy in all the right ways, its dreamy and dazzling costumes punctuated with spirited and elaborate staging and set pieces.

Like Barnum himself, it's an elegant fraud, nice enough to look at as long as you don't look too close.

Very little here works. The movie is safe and bland, with atrocious direction and horrible choreography.
November 17, 2018
Almost everyone involved here was working in the full scope of their abilities. Perhaps one day they can even collaborate on something with more than just a shoestring screenplay.

I might have enjoyed a different version of The Greatest Showman. One where the filmmaking was more adept, the songs more substantial, and the characters given the complexity they deserve. This? This is pap.
