This movie is an absolute joy. Fans of ... Jackman should definitely check (this) out, showcasing the talented actor in an exciting return to his musical roots.

As genuinely if superficially enjoyable as The Greatest Showman is, there is something unseemly in embracing so tidy a view.

There's more than enough flash and bang [in The Greatest Showman] to spare, but not nearly enough of a concentrated effort to fully develop one single angle, from plot to participants.

The Greatest Showman aims to be a old-school musical in every best sense of the word. Hugh Jackman shines and catchy lyrics make for a great extragavaganza

It's a cheesy, spineless film that celebrates the shameless exploitation that Barnum built an empire on, containing none of the same thrills or shocks that he was known for.

While maybe not the greatest show, it is one of the best musicals of the last decade.

It's almost tempting to describe The Greatest Showman as a masterpiece of surrealism, in it's off-base aesthetics and absurdist drama. Unfortunately, it is more likely just bad.

The irony is that while LA LA LAND probably enabled THE GREATEST SHOWMAN to be made, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN is by far the better musical.

Everything about this film clicks from start to finish. The music, the choreography, the costumes and the performances are top-notch.

I will personally be watching Zac Efron and Zendaya doing aerial acrobatics on "Rewrite the Stars" quite a few more times between now and whenever either the rental period runs out or The Greatest Showman is sent to jail for crimes against chill-ness.

Everything is geared towards packaging Barnum as a sort of cuddly pioneer of inclusivity, rather than the hard-nosed businessman of his times that he was.

A showy, confused, big hunk of nothing.

...it's a good show to enjoy a carefree moment. [Full Review in Spanish]

The musical numbers alone make 'The Greatest Showman' worth seeing.

I love beautiful, well-crafted, profound musicals with cleverly rhymed lyrics. Fortunately, I also enjoy shallow throwaway puff pieces with catchy tunes, lyrics that are purely functional, and dead-end subplots.

An old-fashioned show. [Full Review in Spanish]

The nervous energy musical works too hard to sustain a magic it never achieves onscreen.

[With] a handful of dynamic original songs written by Academy Award-winning lyricists Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land)...[the film] delivers on its promise of spectacular showmanship.
