With Memorable music and dazzling performances, The Greatest Showman inspires as it is colorful, romantic, and fills the human heart with beautiful themes and messages. The Greatest Showman reminds us what is truly important about a film and is indeed the greatest film of all time.
Musical fans will love this movie from start to finish, movie enthousiasts might be left with more desire
This proves that movies don't need violence, action, or gloom to be good. The greatest showman is bright, cheerful, and unafraid to tackle issue with upbeat music and beautiful lyrics. The actors are also amazing
This is another slightly uneven film, the story is basic and convenient, but I had such a blast watching it that I forget all about the flaws of the film. I loved Hugh Jackman, he was very committed and he is an amazing singer, his relationship with Michelle Williams felt genuine and sweet. Zac Efron was pretty good too, he had a defined purpose and he fulfilled it, he is also pretty good at singing, he has improved since his high school musical days. Zendaya was fine, but she didn't stand out at all, she kind of just faded into the background with all of the numerous other characters. Rebecca Ferguson was great as well, but she isn't in the movie that much, and her character made choices that just didn't make sense, but her solo in this movie is so powerful and amazing, I tear up every time I watch it. I adore every single song in this movie, they are all unique and carry a different message of significance that helps to move along the plot in a more entertaining way, the music alone in this movie is top-notch and worth five stars. What drags this movie down is it's oversimplified plot, and it's solutions to problems is way too convenient and feels very unrealistic, it just does whatever it can to solve the problems that they wrote in this film. I loved learning about the beginnings of the circus and I liked the show that they performed, It may not have been historically accurate, but it doesn't have to be, it was so enjoyable that you can't imagine it any other way. I understand why many people hated this movie, but I can mostly overlook these flaws because I enjoy the music and acting way more than most people. I still love this movie and think that it is perfect for families to sit down and enjoy together.
Honestly, this was the best cinematic musical I have ever seen. Amazing actors and the music is fantastic. It does like to play around with the original story. This movie bring out a great message. I am very surprised this movie got a 56% on the Tomatometer. Totally recommend this movie!
Awsome cast, good songs and the best musical in the last 5 years
Honestly I've watched this movie a bunch of times and it gets better every time i see it, sure it isn't a perfect movie no movie is but it is one of the better ones that i've seen and is a must watch
Decent songs but the story is so boring. Would be much more entertaining if it was more accurate to the real P. T. Barnum!
What a beautiful movie! the acting, singing, and all visuals are so enjoyable. Great reminder of the things that really matter in life. “ The noblest Art is that of making others happy” P.T. Barnum
This is not the Hugh Jackman I know. My mom called me during the movie saying that I have to leave because it’s Purim.
