| A must see film
After seeing the stage play several times I was apprehensive that the film would live up to the spectacle of the stage version. Not at all disappointed.

You are gripped by the story line and characters from the offset, and quickly tune into the emotion of the lyrics and music.

Putting a musical into a film was a risk, but it paid off because the story is the music. The sets are vast but simplistic, relating to the stage play.

Hugh Jackman played a blinding role, as did Anne Hathaway and Amanda Siegfried. Russell Crowe played a great 'baddie' but his signing wasn't really the highlight of his role.

Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter were both excellent for the roles they played of the innkeeper and his wife, the lightness in the darkness of the film, very funny.

Without giving away and spoilers, its difficult to describe how truly emotionally charged the film is, but as soon as the haunting music and chilling lyrics start, you do get a rush of pure sadness in places. So moving.

You know a film is good when the cinema audience give a round of applause at the end, and they did.

A must see film, at the cinema, for the pure spectacle and sound track.
