User Reviews

 
A story full of passion, revolutionary spirit, redemption and...music
30 December 2018 | by aspero-12928See all my reviews

The cast is incredible. You think you're watching a merely remake of the 1998 movie but as the film begins you realize that it has something different and innovative. From the first shots the song of the slaves is dominating and the scene is filmed in a majestic way (so as the whole movie). Sometimes some dialogues are sung by the characters when it is not necessary (and the viewer loses concentration). Apart from this, it seems to be at the theater. The songs remain impressed and the drama/revolution is appeased by the comedy of the two scammers. Tom Hooper has realized both a good remake and musical.
