Rotten: The movie's whole virtuous conception of Jean Valjean sticks in my craw. He's haunted and hunted, but he reeks of a reasoned, noble superiority that's a pretty sterile quality in the hero of an epic.
- Charles Taylor, Salon.com, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Fresh: A beautiful testament to the strength of the human spirit. This version of Les Miserables is a triumph for everyone involved.
- Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Without a doubt the most emotionally powerful and handsomely mounted production of the story yet.
- Emanuel Levy, Variety, Thursday, March 26, 2009
Stories of unjust persecution are always intriguing. What a justice system where stealing a loaf of bread is a lifetime prison sentence! I had to read Les Miserables in French in high school, and never quite understood it, so the details are interesting. I thought the acting was well done. Liam Neeson does great work, and Geoffrey Rush is fun to hate.

The book is great, read it before you see the movie. Then you'll see that this film could have been so much better than it was.
