Les Miserables 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 12 reviews.

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.

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.

The book, which is a literary classic, is wonderful to read, likewise the musical is a beautiful production, and this movie has done everything to be just as good and awe-inspiring. Victor Hugo's story, set in France during a tumultuous time and turbulent life of a former convict, is depicted quite well in this film. It is enjoyable and Liam Neeson makes a great Jean Valjean, showing that for once a novel can be made into a movie and still bring everything to the table that the book has done for so many.

As someone else noted, it's futile to try to tell all that much of a 1000+ page novel in 120 minutes. Besides the Thenardiers coming and going through various time periods of the story, I wondered how much more stirring they could have made this by at least including Cosette's trip to the well. That's one of the most indelible scenes I've ever come across in literature. And obviously the filmmakers left out the remarkably vivid, savage, vicious fighting between the citizens and soldiers in order to get a PG-13 rating and attract a larger audience. But this effort is highly commendable. Neeson and Rush were spot-on in their roles as Jean Valjean and Inspector Javert and everyone else did well, even Claire Danes and the young guy who played Marius.

A timeless, profoundly beautiful classic! Les Miserables is on of my favorites. With a story that capotures your interest and characters portrayed by talents like Liam Neeson and Uma Thurman, this move is highly recommended. It's a beautiful movie. Period.

Les Miserables is a much reccomended film that you have got to see. Javert, played by Geoffrey Rush, is incredibly talented and he plays his part extremely well. I wouldn't show this to small children, for there is little sexual content and it is not a kid's movie. But, please, don't let this pass you by. If you can, also see the musical, which is absolutely superb.
