'Les Miserables': The Reviews Are In!
Most expect recognition for 'Les Mis' come Oscar time, like it or not.

December 25, 2012

The world's longest-running musical is about to hit theaters with a massive A-list cast in tow. Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe have all assembled for the cinematic adaptation of "Les MisÚrables." What could go wrong?

With a Christmas Day opening, a bit of Oscar buzz and supporting turns from the likes of Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter, "Les Mis" seems like a safe bet for success. But what are critics saying? The positive vibes aren't unanimous, but 72 percent of the reviews gathered by Rotten Tomatoes at the time of this writing were favorable.

Director Tom Hooper made "The King's Speech," so he certainly knows a thing or two about awards. "Les Mis" is set in 19th-century France and has all sorts of tear-jerking and triumphant moments. Before he was Wolverine, Hugh Jackman was singing and dancing in "Oklahoma!," which earned him an Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical. The Tony Award winner, who later showed off his moves hosting the Oscars, stars in "Les Mis" as ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted and on the run.
