The whole concept of singing most of the lines helped draw me into the film in ways it couldn’t have otherwise. Too bad every scene featuring the “comic relief” innkeepers completely broke my concentration every time.
I won’t dedicate two sections of this review to the awful innkeepers (or that snot-nosed brat with the inexplicable British accent), so instead I’ll say that Russell Crowe has a surprisingly decent singing voice.
Oh, and Samantha Barks was the best thing this movie had going for it.
Do you like off-centered shots of people’s heads? Have I got a film for you!
Obviously none. Come on.
Despite the singing keeping me interested, I think this one would become a chore to watch after a few viewings.
