After watching the West End Show, many times, I was intrigued to see this movie. It is a brilliant movie!. Hugh Jackman's acting is amazing - couldn't fault it, he really showed all the emotion needed for Jean Valjean........... BUT his singing voice is not that good - and after 3rd viewing of movie and listening to album, his voice is 'grating' to say the least, which is a shame as I thought all the other actors did a great job. Although Russell Crowe got some bad press, at least his singing voice is pleasant to listen too. However saying that, it is an amazing film!. Eddie Redmayne was a real surprise his acting and singing was excellent. If you loved this film - read the book.
