Last Friday a girl friend and I watched The Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Zendaya.
I really enjoyed it! I love walking out of a cinema and feeling happy and entertained. This movie did just that. The music was great- catchy and exciting! I think when I compare the soundtrack to something like “Moulin Rouge”- where I recognized every single song in it, to the fact that every song in this movie was an original- and I enjoyed it just as much, that is something quite special.
The costumes were lovely. The choreography was good and the scene with Zendaya and Zac Efron dancing with the trapeze was interesting.
I think it was well casted, and every person did a good job. I love Hugh Jackman in so many roles, he is always so very watchable, as he is here.
Would I say this movie is a great movie? Destined to one day be a classic? No. However it is highly entertaining, funny, and makes you feel good as you are walking out.
I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys musicals, singing, dancing, to anyone who loves Hugh Jackman, it’s the kind of movie you could take your teenager to, but also your parents to. A good family movie that has a little bit of grit to it too.
