I have seen the movie three times and plan to see it more times. Having seen a number of stage performances in London, I really didn't expect to enjoy the movie as much as I did. It was simply stunning. Some people have commented on some of the actors' musicianship. Hugh Jackman isn't a great singer, but he was much more than adequate. More than that, he brought a passion to the role that I have not seen equalled in the other performances I have seen. Tom Hooper had it exactly right when he insisted that the actors sing rather than lip sync.
