WHAT I LIKE?
The Greatest Showman is truly one of Hollywood’s finest in the Musical Genre with impressive song performances, choreography and a very inspiring plot that will take you to a one of a kind journey of fulfilling your dreams and risking everything for your loved ones. I really loved the movie. Plot-wise, the movie stood ground with PT Barnum’s humble beginnings and hungry for affirmation. It was a perfect setting of the whole film’s premise. With the right timing of romance formula, the movie effectively set an atmosphere of dedication rooted within a family setting. This aspect has truly gave the whole film its soul and purpose to begin with. With a very inspiring plot material, the movie never failed to live up with its Genre – Musical. For me, all the song choices were great and very relatable. I can almost sing along with all the song numbers. I would like to also commend the choreography which is spot on and very creative. The film’s strength is most attributed with the Musical Formula that the Greatest Showman has impressively invested. Both the group performances, solos and duos were memorable for me. Jenny Lind solo performance got me chills in my spine. The Zac and Hugh tandem numbers were such a joy to watch too. The whole circus thing is well-executed and it was really done with precision and even near perfection. It was like a spectacle on the big screen. Hugh Jackman delivers along with all of its talented cast. More than a good musical masterpiece composition, the Cinematography and production Setting really stood out as well. I really liked the Circus Setting and the even the scenes shot within the city setting. Aside from that, the movie’s inspiring soul also got me. I am moved by the lesson the movie wanted to impart to us. The movie will bring you to a world of your dreams and will challenge you with those dreams. I was smiling until the end. The movie is truly worth-watching.
