Critic Reviews of "Les Misérables"Time OutJanuary 08, 2013
Tom Hooper gets a bit carried away with swoopy shots, and the close-ups are unrelenting, but crucially he lets the filth and the squalor in.New YorkerJanuary 04, 2013
Fans of the original production, no doubt, will eat the movie up, and good luck to them. I screamed a scream as time went by.MSN MoviesJanuary 02, 2013
... Jackman, who should get a Nobel Prize for the way he carries pretty much the whole undertaking on his shoulders, so protean and virile is his singing and acting throughout.San Francisco ChronicleDecember 28, 2012
At the heart of the "Les Misérables" movie was a good idea that just didn't work out this time. The idea was that the actors should sing their songs live on camera.SlateDecember 27, 2012
We're all familiar with the experience of seeing movies that cram ideas and themes down our throats. Les Misérables may represent the first movie to do so while also cramming us down the throats of its actors.The AtlanticDecember 25, 2012
Committed fans of the musical are likely to have their affections reaffirmed. The less devout, however, may conclude that in this case more is less, and fidelity not always a virtue.Cinema-stacheMarch 22, 2017
If we embrace our proximity instead of being shaken out of the characters' woes, then the film turns into a thing of beauty.AARP Movies for GrownupsJune 10, 2016
(Director Tom) Hooper...cribs from musicals ranging from Oliver! to Cabaret to Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He misses the energy of those films, and doesn't accomplish the immediacy of Les Miz's stage incarnation.CinemixtapeApril 15, 2016
Tom Hooper, what have you done?The Improper BostonianMay 12, 2015
Tom Hooper's direction is an aesthetic crime.Movie MezzanineFebruary 06, 2014
Everybody curse Tom Hooper! Everybody feel the gloom! Everybody give thumbs down to the Master of the Zoom!Film Comment MagazineNovember 05, 2013
Ultimately the film's choppy, camera-goes-anywhere approach works well in translating a play that was never all that interested in the movement of bodies anyway-only their martyrdom.
