Movie Review: The Greatest Showman

The greatest showman in the greatest show I’ve seen in a long while!

Truly, it was an awesome movie. I legit had goosebumps throughout the whole movie.

Hugh Jackman was the whole show. He stole the light in every scene in such an accidental way that created a whole new definition for the word finesse. He truly was the perfect actor for the role.

The music was AWESOME! I loved every song and, in fact, I have the whole soundtrack and listen to it over and over again.

Zac Efron and Zendaya played their couple part splendidly, and, coming from a great love story fan, they added a beautiful romance to the movie.

There aren’t enough ways for me to describe how much I loved this movie. But I feel like I’m slightly prejudice with my opinions because I’ve always been fascinated and carried away with musicals and my interest in the stage. So, to be fair to those wanting to see the show, here is the critic in me.

  •   One thing about the music: It was a little bit too contemporary for the time era.
  • There weren’t alot of animals and the animals that were present were obviously animated.
  • The entire show consisted more of song and dance routines than of actual circus acts.
  • Lettie-the bearded lady- wore very elegant opera dresses……with VERY open necklines. Which would have been ok except when she really got into her song and dance, the audience got kinda a bad view. Pretty much this was the only heads up that I saw.
  • OH, wait! That’s all!

Excellent movie, people!! Go get it at the library and watch it-again and again!
