The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman is possibly the best film I have seen for a very long time – it left me with an uplifting feeling that lasted for days.  I know it is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but I loved it.  I’m still listening to the soundtrack weeks later and I’m not sick of it.

Telling the tale of how P T Barnum came to form his circus and the obstacles he had to overcome, we watch how the performers cope with the prejudices that being different comes with, and how Barnum realises what’s important in his life.

An all star cast including Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams and Zac Efron really bring the film to life and I defy you not to leave the cinema smiling, or singing……!

The Greatest Showman is a fantastic film that everyone should go and see at least once!


This year I am going to be rating each film but, instead of using a traditional “out of 5” mark, I will be using an “out of Jason Stathams”.   With the best being 5 Jason Stathams and the worst only 1 Jason Statham.
