This isn't usually my type of film, so I wasn't expecting to be blown away. But I was. I found myself smiling, laughing and dare I say it, even slightly teary during this remarkable film. It honestly couldn't be any better. The story, the music, the casting, the costumes... all perfect.
Hugh Jackman and Samantha Barks were the standouts for me, closely followed by Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen! But overall the whole cast were incredible (yes, even Russel Crowe, who's not vocally great, but it's hard to imagine anyone else playing that role).
The Blu-Ray picture and sound are fantastic, so make the purchase, sit back, turn your speakers up to full volume and enjoy this incredible masterpiece. You wont be disappointed.
