Not quite what I expected. But if you know me (which you don't), you know I enjoy musicals, and this one did not disappoint. If you aren't big on musicals, this probably won't be for you. Some very powerful songs for which I wish I had seen this in the theater with a good sound system. I do wish it had a more cohesive plot or meaning, but despite this, it's still a fun movie. 4 stars - This is a good movie and I would recommend you watch it if you enjoy musicals.

For about an hour, the film is almost a masterpiece, reminding of the Golden Age of light-as-a-feather musical entertainments - unfortunately the second half tries to clumsily 'get serious'; a noble idea, but the truncated running time means the social issues get short shrift (the emotional THIS IS ME is undermined when the film spends so little time on developing the circus people as individuals). However, it's well produced and superbly performed, with Jackman exceptional in the lead.

I’m a sucker for musicals, so I couldn’t help but be drawn in during those sequences. But I didn’t love any of the songs - they were fine, but I wasn’t wild about them. Hugh Jackman’s wonderful, as usual. It’s a nice-looking, colourful film, but in the end, it is a very cliché rags to riches story, and doesn’t amount to much.

The Greatest Showman is a badly made movie masquerading behind catchy pop songs and impressive choreography. All the performances were good, but the direction of the film is befuddling. Anytime the plot attempts emotional resonance, a lightning-paced musical number pops up to remind the audience that they are in fact watching a musical. The tunes may be stuck in your head, but the songs are utterly forgettable. The film delivers spectacle, but at the expense of everything else.

This is so entertaining, I had great fun watching it. The problem is that it's not a very good movie, due to its poor plot. It's a shame too because the cast, the music and the production all hit their marks. In fact, the songs are very catchy and it almost makes you want to cheer and clap after each one. I dare say that this would play so well on stage, especially with a little more added depth in character development.

While the plot isn't exactly amazing, the songwriting and the performances of Hugh Jackman make this film a stand out musical. It lacks the quality (and most probably budget) of Les Mis but far surpassed my expectations. Catchy songs with an upbeat yet somewhat under-explored plot. Whenever given the opportunity, Zendaya and Efron were brilliant, not enough made of their talents though. The scene with Jackman and Efron in the bar is a choreographic highlight.

As a biopic, it's an utter failure, but for musical buffs the song and dance are fairly well done. I could have cared less about Jackman and the dancing, but once Efron was introduced, I was in. It's been a week or two since I saw it and I can honestly say I don't remember any of the music, and for a musical, that's a mark of poor songwriting.

An awfully flawed story, with almost any problem raised getting solved in nearly the next song. But oh man, is every song amazing. Not a bad song in the whole movie, which is rare for a musical. Every song is catching, great lyrics, and fantastic singing. Hugh Jackman pours his heart into a role that is shallow but showboasting. Worth a watch for musical fans or fans of La La Land's soundtrack

Yes, the character of P. T. Barnum deserved a hell of lot more stories about his actual life. Yes, the plot is thinner than Kate Moss on a coke bender. BUT as a "Moulin Rouge"-wannabe musical TGS works. Some of the most catchy songs I have heard in a musical for a long time. This feels like a musical that was written so Hugh Jackman will give it a rest... at least for a while... Nothing impressive, but a nice movie if your in ti the whole Lady Gaga, Freak Show vibe thing...

The music is phenomenal and the choreography is staggering, but the writing is poor and the content is grossly problematic (despite cheap attempts at "empowerment" as can only be written by those who have never not been in power. Though the empowerment song was great).

This movie hit me in all the right places. The music struck a chord, with a great mix of emotion & catchiness. Awesome performances from Jackman, Williams, Efron, & Zendaya. I was in awe of the cinematography & lighting, which made every scene pop with color & life. Loved it!

Hugh Jackman grins his way through the mildest show on Earth in THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, presenting a bland, uninspired version of a supposedly inspiring figure. What the film lacks in depth and personality, it tries to make up in razzle-dazzle. But the movie also fails the show-stopping talent of its cast, presenting a parade of derivative pop songs with schlocky, anodyne lyrics that would be right at home on a Rachel Platten record.

All kitsch. Pretty bland, boring and dull, and sometimes annoyingly stupid. There's no actual drama. every problem is solved quickly, easily and without much effort. But it relies a lot on visual storytelling, which is rare in a movie like this, I think. The upbeat songs are embarassingly silly (including the choreography), except for the bar one. Had to get used to the stylistic choices, but really liked all the other songs. It's pretty long, but doesn't feel that way. Zendaya was great.

It has a lot of flaws, but I just can't help but love it. I'm not really sure it's a good film at all, but my weak spot for musicals is quite severe. Efron and Zendaya were particularly good together.
