‘The Greatest Showman’ tells the story of a visionary man who, from nothing, created a spectacular show. The movie is a musical, inspired by the true story of P. T. Barnum and was directed by Michael Gracey.
There are several reasons why I really loved this film but the main is the soundtrack. The music is just so catchy, it’s very uplifting and touching. I really loved how modern it is even though the story is set in the 19th century.
I really loved the story in general, it’s very touching and well-developed but I think they missed a lot of important details like for example I didn’t feel like I saw enough of Circus performances and I wish I saw more of the circus characters. Also, ‘Jenny Lind’ is supposed to be an Opera singer but honestly, what she sings is not opera :p
Concerning the visuals, I really loved how the movie was filmed; the cinematography and art direction is beautiful. I also love how SOME scenes were edited [to show time passing by for example].
In fact, I was only mesmerized by the music and the visuals, not the characters. I didn’t feel for the characters, I don’t think they were well-developed and the actors don’t covey their emotions. Their acting is believable but it is not breath-taking or emotional.
Despite that, I still think this movie gives a joyous and uplifting experience and I do recommend you to watch it!
That’s it for this movie review. I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog.
