This is a fantastic movie let down by one of the worst endings ever. It didn't make any sense at all. This is the only version I've ever seen and based on this I would never watch another. Disappointing. I'm told this ending is true to the original but there should be more of the story after. Even so, the final event in this film would not have made any sense. If you really want to watch it, try another version. I hope it's more satisfying for you than this one was for us.
The 1998 version of Les Mis is excellent; so much so, one wonders why Copywood, er, Hollywood did it again (this "soon")!!??! Oh, I got it, the music ... couldn't be the MONEY!!!!
Love it. Hilarious that the lower class were played by those with rough English accents...
Good story, criminals these days have it so easy these days, during the French revolution people go to jail just for stealing a loaf of bread and pay harshly for it.
The latest edition is a more contemporary version of Victor Hugo's EPIC. The rolls played of Jean-Val-Jean and the persistent inspector are fabulous. Possible this edition is one that non-europeans can better understand from a whole political and social perspective.
Saved from mediocrity by Geoffrey Rush and Liam Neeson, (and somewhat the costumes and sets). Still, worth a watch.
Well done drama, but not as good as the classic story. Ivor Morton.
Gripping action. Not a patch on the real story but as good film, perhaps 3.5 stars.
