disk was faulty! but great great great movie!
The music, the acting, the razamataz, it's all there!
Amazing. Great stores, casting,choreography, basically everything. Strongly recommend.
Great musical numbers, good story, good acting, dancing and singing. An overall winner, and surprisingly a feel good movie.
Excellent Musical with lots of energy. The Musical offerings by the 3 main characters 'Renee Z, Catherine Z and Richard G' were as good as anything other more established singers/dancers have offered. Good on 'them'. A highly recommended title to anyone who enjoys lively music.
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp.
Fresh and effective film after more that half a century.Ken Taylor
A great Musical. Entertaining & enjoyable.
Too much frenetic activity which leaves one feeling exhausted at the end.
Loved this movie. fast pace, great singing.
This movie has to be very much 'your thing' to enjoy it.
Enjoyable and good to see Renee and Richard singing and dancing
Perfectly cast. Watch when you're in the mood for a musical. The behind the scenes bonus feature is very good.
I love Chicago every time I watch it. It is very entertaining. I love musicals and Renee and Catherine are wonderful as Roxie and Velma. Richard Gere showed a whole new side to him as a singer and dancer
Great movies, it's pity Richard gere doesn't fit for his role in this movie.
For quite a time the musical was dead, and then along comes Chicago.
Full advantage is taken of the film medium to bring this imaginatively to the screen with stunning results. Brilliant casting with the principals all performing their own singing and dancing, and what a talented crew they are.
A film bursting with energy and a terrific hi-fi sound track well worth turning up for the best effect. In my a view an absolute classic.
An enjoyable musical movie. I watched it a few times, but I'm not sure I want to own a copy. The odd violent/graphic scene, mostly pretty harmless fun.
Great adaption of a stage musical. Tight choreography and clever concept. Best lighting.
The best stage musical to screen adaptaion ever. Magic in motion.
Exuberant and fast moving, with an urgent rhythm carrying the plot along. The showtime interludes which intersperse the storyline are caricatures of the plot and characters, and it works brilliantly! The four main characters have a compelling magnetism, and together with the beautiful girls, the choreography and the nearly-costumes, my eyes were glued to the screen. Fantastic!
Very well done.
Renée Zellweger at her very best - makes you ask: who is the other one ?? ( Zeta-Jones )
if you like movies with singing and dancing and JAZZ then you will love this movie!
it is very clever in the way that 2 things happen at once
a must see
I never thought in a million years that I would enjoy this movie. But there I was humming along and attempting to sing along "and all that jazz". Its such a cool movie and I am not surprised that it won so many awards worldwide. Features some stunning outfits and a VERY slimmed down Renee Zellweger. I was also impressed by Richard Gere, he was very believable and looked like he was having a ball. Has a great story about being famous which is as relevant today as when it was set. A movie that will continue to get people tapping their toes and dancing in their hallways!
I was never a big fan of the musical genre on film. I'd rather see it in real life. But this is really good. Well cast (who thought that Richard Gere could sing!) and well put together. Nice snappy pace.
Am not really that much into musicals, but this one was good.
Fantastic movie - I have never seen the broadway play version of this and it looked fantastic in the previews at the cinema, but I missed it at the cinema and it took me over a couple of years to finally see it on Foxtel, and to LOVE this movie, a True classic with style, my type of musical for years to come.
I am not a lover of musicals but this was well worth viewing.
I didn't think it was Academy Award winning!! Okay.
A very good film version of the stage show
Not a patch on the stage show!
This is a musical. Classic chick flick. It was an interesting watch. My wife thought it was probably a 3 star but I'm writing the review so it got 2...
Chicago deserves its accolades as a modern musical, I think better than Moulin Rouge. The singing, dancing and scenes were great and there was a story that you could follow. Several big name stars who all did a great job.
I loved the choreography and effects. Catherine is amazing. And both Catherine and Renee can sing, which was a pleasant surprise!
Enjoyed this musical, I think I would enjoy it whoever played the parts.
If you love Musicals you'll probably enjoy this. I don't and I didn't. I was surprised to see that Richard Gere can hold a tune; if that's his voice.
catherine & zeta are great just get it & enjoy!!!!!
catherine & renee are great just get it & enjoy!!!!!
if you like musicals this is defintiely for you. But the actual Disc was very slightly faulty in two places approx mid way thru, just slowed fuzzed then fine rest of movie.
As this is on trial can't say muh until have seen & used a couple more but so far am impressed with service.
Some really good musical numbers - don't know if it deserved best picture oscar though...
A brilliant piece of cinema. The late Bob Fosse would have approved of this treatment of the musical he first staged in 1975.
