Editorial Reviews

Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King's Speech's Academy Award®-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. In December 2012, the world's longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper's sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo's epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs including I Dreamed a Dream, Bring Him Home, One Day More and On My Own Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only highlights--leaves out some great songs December 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I never imagined that I would write anything less than a glowing review of this album, but I'm afraid I must do just that. I understand that this is a "highlights" album, but how on earth is "Do You Hear the People Sing" not a highlight?

As for the music that is present, it's good, but it's hard for me to hear the songs being "acted" rather than sung. I'm sure this will make for a fantastic film, but it doesn't make for an amazing listening experience. I never expected for Jackman to equal Colm Wilkinson or Crowe to equal Philip Quast, yet I still feel disappointed. (As a sidenote, Eddie Redmayne has exceeded my expectations, Samantha Barks is as wonderful as I hoped, and I was thrilled to hear Wilkinson as the Bishop.)

A highlights album will inevitably leave out someone's favorite song, and I'd recommend you check the track list before deciding to purchase this album to make sure your favorite song is included--I sure wish I'd done that! Surely they'll release a complete cast recording at some point that will make everyone happy. Until then, I'll keep listening to my favorite Les Mis recording, Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Concert.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for "highlights" December 23, 2012
By Adam
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply, if you are a fan of LES MIS (the original show or the movie for that matter), this recording is woefully truncated. Even as a "highlights" recording, it's a scant 60 minutes that leaves out another 100 minutes of the film. Worth a few listens, but I hope that a complete recording will be released.

Still have tears in my eyes after replaying the Epilogue for the second time (yes, I was a dork and did the Mis March step...). It is RAW, especially Jackman throughout and Hathaway is so heavenly in the final scene (no, it blesses your soul, like God is saying, "You are worthy").

Jackman's voice is very, very, very unique. It will be hard for the Wilkinson and other Jean Valjean fans to accept his quality, I think. BUT, again I will use the word, RAW! It has an emotion that is real time REAL. It is an adjustment from the recordings we've been listening to for years. But give it its due. And then wait the three days to see the VISUALS!!!!!

Crowe, Baron Cohen, Banks, Seyfried,Bonham Carter are not the Broadway cast. Still they take this musical to the street level, as in, if I were to start singing about my life to Sonoko, the nice lady two houses down. In spite of my usual dislike of Bonham Carter, she spins a new turn, as does Cohen, which is refreshing after 25+ yrs. and let's be honest, a hard thing to do.

Sorry, but I don't think Suddenly adds anything. Personally, I think it was included as a song tailored to Jackman's vocal quality and perhaps to really dispurse any question that he took in Cosette for an honorable reason and he benifits from that generous gesture. Not a great song. Will give Jackman credit for making it sound like the way my son looks when he holds his three month old first child, first daugher. It has a quality of amazement, which is appropriate.

Hummmmmmmmmmmmm, Crowe's Stars is sooo very, very different from other interpretations I've heard, live or recorded. It is more lyrical, small, than any other version. I listened to it struggling to see if it fit the song.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME IN ITS OWN WAY December 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've seen the Broadway and I've seen the movie. One isn't better than the other, just different. I was thrilled to see and listen to other interpretations of this great work. As an opera singer, it would be easy for me to linger on vocal imperfections of the movie. It is as stated above, "RAW" or very real. When Jackman sings his first song in the church, I was moved to tears. It is more than singing. I can listen to both the stage and movie versions without comparing, but spend my energy just enjoying and soaking it up. So, if you want a critique, Jackman's voice has a very strong bright edge to it that is very acceptable on the musical stage. Most of the time that edge works for him, however during Bring Him Home,I don't think it does. He tends to bring way too much chest into his high notes for this song which makes it sound like he's working too hard. To his credit, he never flips into falsetto for the high notes like everyone else does. His final three high notes are supported and placed very forward again using the bright edge to his advantage. Crowe was an introverted, driven, psychological methodical character, however the emotion is still there. He was very understated and there was a reason. Freddie Redmayne is excellent as Marius and his acting/singing especially during Empty Chairs is emotional and beautiful. Ann Hathaway brought her role home and nailed it at the end. Not a dry eye anywhere. Important safety tip - do not drive while listening to the last track. I cried all the way home in rush-hour traffic. I guess I should have turned it off then, but it was awesome. They tweaked the end a little, tightened it and every word could be understood. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Where did the music go? January 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD
As the cover says, this is a highlights album. Many songs are missing. Many of the included are edited. Wait for the full recording or, better yet, buy one of the London cast recordings.
