I don’t usually get hyped by a movie in the way that I have of The Greatest Showman, but blow me down it was a brilliant film.
Expertly writted and beautifully filmed, it really was a rare pleasure to watch. I don’t think I have had such a sense of wonder when watching a film since the days of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet. I remember seeing that film and it became a slight obsession the idea of bringing Shakespeare into the 21st century was truly a brilliant idea.
Back to The Greatest Showman, P.T. Barnum was obviously a great businessman someone to clearly admire and to create a movie based on his life in this way seems very fitting, the film was grand, had endless entertainment value and was just a visually stunning film.
I really can’t fault the sound track it’s a brilliant spectacle of talent, clever writting and fits the film so well. Hugh Jackman can sing as well which I think few pople realised but yeah he is a bad ass!
Anyway I loved the film! Check it out!
