My reply to the article: http://www.crosswalk.com/culture/movies/les-miserables-2012-movie-review.html
I appreciate your review and agree with most of it. Russell Crowe was definitely too weak in terms of voice but I also found the key or perhaps the octave a bit too high for the guys. I kept wondering who chose it bc the guys were breaking trying to hit their high notes. Colm Wilkinson was the priest, I wish he got a bigger role but of course there are only so many. But gosh, the question of who else could have been Javert kept going through my head. His suicide scene was sooooo weak. They all did a fine job though and I'm glad every time they try to get Les Mis on the big screen! Yes, I'm a fan.
Do you agree? Let me know!
