This review is from: Oliver Twist (2007) (DVD)
I am a big fan of classic literature, and I love well-done adaptations. I really enjoyed this version of Oliver Twist. The mannerisms of the characters and the music are all very modern, and though I enjoy the more closely representational adaptations, I enjoy the ones that take more liberties as well.
I personally thought the acting was well-done. I enjoyed the different takes on Dickens' characters. The camera work added another modern and fun note. It's a very up-beat, fast-paced, and exciting adaptation.
In short, there are an abundance of bad reviews for this movie, so I thought I'd try and give it a lift. Check it out. If you like classic literature adaptations, and you're not of the overly-purist sect, I think you'll enjoy it.
