Russell Crowe

Does he know how bad he was in Lés Miserables?

Does he care?

I think he tried his best.

Is it really his fault?

He didn't understand the songs and threw away many of the lyrics. Needed more passion.

Yeah, I just told him a few days ago.

I give him credit for giving it a try. His acting was fine. He had trouble with his solos.

His voice can be pretty good, he hit some wonderfully deep, powerful notes. And then he followed those beautiful notes with flat, unfocused, nasal ones.

Why the hell he didn't get more vocal training before starting his comeback movie, I'll never understand.

He obviously cares since he went out of his way to tell Adam Lambert.

He should have farted through the solos. It would have sounded better.

He 'told' Lambert by basically agreeing with him.

'Stars' was way better than Jackman's braying in 'Bring Him Home.'

Give Russell credit he admitted that Adam Lambert was right. He also said the director wanted things a bit raw anyway.

He's got as much vibrato as a car horn. Actually, that's kind of what he sounded like.

Horrible casting. As bad as Antonio Banderas in "Evita", who talked through the whole fucking musical.

After his awful Robin Hood I was surprised he was allowed to star in anything else !

He's got Noah coming up too r11

Lack of rehearsal. Can't believe there weren't retakes

A LOT of retakes

by Anonymousreply 1301/09/2013

I had no problem with him at all. The bitching is coming from people that expect him to sound exactly as the cast album they've been listening to for the last twenty five years.

Bullshit, r14.

But you do expect someone with a major part in A MUSICAL to be able TO SING.

by Anonymousreply 1501/09/2013

His acting was TERRIBLE. At times, I wondered if he even was awake.

Singing was the worst I have heard in a musical. Right up there with Lucille Ball in Mame.

I blame the director.

Crowe was trying so diligently and ploddingly to do what his one-month voice coach tried to teach him, that he had no spare brain cells to focus on his character/acting.

At least that was my impression.

by Anonymousreply 1701/09/2013

just watch the first half hour and go home....why bother with mediocrity?

by Anonymousreply 1801/09/2013

The main problem and perhaps downfall of Les Mis was directing. Crowe was directed very poorly as was Jackman and Hathaway.

by Anonymousreply 1901/09/2013

He was 1,000 times better than Pierce Brosnan in "Mamma Mia."

by Anonymousreply 2001/09/2013

Here he is mugging it up on stage. I really don't think he took himself very seriously in this role.

I blame Anne Hathaway.

by Anonymousreply 2301/09/2013

I thought he was fine. I liked him better than Jackman.
