    Strong performances, but where's Eponine?!

    If Liam Neeson and Goeffrey Rush are in a movie, you know it's going to be good. And it was, but, as my headline states, what happened to Eponine? And there was also a lack of Thenardiers, which in my opinion takes quite a bit away from the story. Of course, I understand that there would be no possible way to get everything from the novel into the movie, but come on...Eponine? But other than that, I thought the movie was very well done, with good performances from Uma Thurman and Claire Danes as well. The basic theme of forgiveness and redemption is still there, so you really can't complain too much. Fans of the book, musical, and previous film adaptations would really enjoy this version of Les Miz.

    Good movie, slightly disappointing.

    Les Miserables is a monumental novel, and only a monumental film could do it justice. Unfortunately, only two-thirds of the story are told. The Thenardiers, who are extremely important to the storyline, are all but left out of the movie, and Marius acts more like Enjolras, the real leader of the ABC Society. As an analysis of the struggle between Javert and Valjean, though, the movie moderately excels. It is difficult indeed to pack 1200+ pages in two brief hours.
