This story has more twists and turns than a second-rate soap opera.
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
While it doesn't offer any answers, it both thrills and makes you think.
A clunky actioner with a handful of cool moments.
Loved this film, I have never really been interested in musical films or rated many of them but my wife does enjoy them and reluctantly I watched but was so surprised at how amazing this film was. I watched it and then my kids heard the songs and watched it again a day later. I think they have watched it at least a dozen times since. Not sure what the critics were thinking when they slated it, I have to admit I only read people's opinions now.
This is my first written review of a movie on IMDB though I'm using it few years ago. This movie is so catchy and keeps you with it all the time. The beat and musics are great and better than that the dance and the show! Just amazing! Loved the show and I would rate it 8-9! That's what it deserves. Sadly, I rated it 7. At the beginning it was going really perfect in the regards that it wasn't using, i.e. promoting the use of animals, in circus. I imagined what a great show that not a great movie let alone but also showing us that shows and circus can be great and even greater with humans only! Horses and dogs are ok cause they can adapt without being tortured. So until the last show loved it till I saw the elephants and lions in the last "greatest" show. This promotes the using of wild animals in a circus and this is really bad! We can't imagine the suffer of those poor animals! So hence I would liked to share my idea and why rated it below its deserved rating!
If there were a higher than 10 rating I would gladly give it to this film. An anthem for trying to make your dreams come true and also with a theme that no matter what we look like on the outside we are all deserve love. Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams and Zendaya transport us to a world of music, theatricality and dreams that leap off the screen. If you need to remember why movies are a break from the dreary day to day join this cast to see The Greatest Showman! You will not be sorry.
A good movie., finally. This movie is truly magnificent. This is how you make a musical. It is about being different, accepting yourself, love, family and circus. Also Zac Efron and Zendaya are amazing... Just watch
