Released today, arrived at lunch time....This musical is amazing, I must admit, only ordered it to add to my Zac Efron collection....I was totally blown away, I can't describe how excellent, the acting, music, scenery is.....even if you're not keen on musicals. this film is a must!!!!!!
I can't remember the last time I loved a film and it's soundtrack so much. I went to see it 10 times at the cinema thanks to my unlimited card. I rarely see a film more than one and never that many times! Since receiving the DVD I have watched it a few more times. There is the option to watch the sing a long version and to watch just the songs and other extras! This is a must see film even if you are not a huge fan of musicals! If you can see it in the cinema do so but having a copy to watch at home is great also! 👍🎩🎪

Very disappointed with this product it is fake and not genuine it has no holograms and has a printed picture poorly attached to the DVD case. I cannot give it as a gift as intended and cannot believe that Amazon allows fakes to be sold .
In questo film, come uno scrigno d'oro pieno di diamanti, è racchiusa la magia del cinema. Girato stupendamente, con un ritmo moderno (anche se meno folle, mi ricorda Moulin Rouge), con interpretazioni perfette (Hugh Jackman e Rebecca Ferguson su tutti), scenografie e coreografie incantevoli e una musica tra le più belle e indimenticabili mai scritte per il cinema. In meno di 24 ore ho già riascoltato la colonna sonora almeno una decina di volte. 2 ore di immagini e musica che ti portano su un altro pianeta, il pianeta dei sogni. Una autentica gioia, per gli occhi, per le orecchie, per il cuore. Sarò esagerato, ma improvvisamente, nel periodo più cupo e triste della mia vita, mi ha fatto tornare la voglia di cantare e ballare, la voglia di vivere. Un solo grande rammarico: non averlo visto al cinema.
5.0 out of 5 starsBest Musical for years. Sheer joy !

Bought the DVD having seen the film. Pretended it was for the grand kids but we all ended up watching it together several times and everyone singing along - grandkids, 30 years old adults and us Grandparents. It appeals to all ages and is a joy of a film from start to finish. Wonderful wonderful film. Hugh Jackman is fantastic in the lead role giving it absolutely everything and the rest of the cast are incredible. The songs are astonishing, superb tunes and great sing alongs.

Recieved a DVD version of this and something was not quite right about it. It didnt appear to be retail quality (off the shelf in a store quality). The DVD was sealed but the insert looked poor quality (as though done on a home computer). The graphics seems slightly out of colour balance and brightness/darkness. I didnt break the plastic seal so that it could be returned straight away so I cant comment on the actual dvd and its playback. I certainly wouldnt want to have given this as a gift to my niece for her birthday. Having read other peoples reviews it appears that this is not an isolated occurance. For £10 its better to go to a shop like asda/sainsbury etc which is selling it at the same price and you can see the difference in quality.
I would give this movie more stars if I was able to. It has to be the best musical I've ever seen. There isn't a moments boredom, which I usually find in musicals. From the opening of the movie to the very end, it had me totally lost in it. The music is fantastic and the choreography can't be beaten! I can't wait to watch it again, and again. In fact, we did rewind and watch 'From Now On' a few times for the brilliant choreography.

The quality of the dvd is very low and I am not convinced it is a genuine copy. Tried to return the item and this was declined stating it had been opened. Not impressed. Don't use this supplier if you want a decent picture!

This DVD is going to be returned unopened ! It is obviously a cheap copy, The cover looks as if it was home printed (I am sure my printer would do a better job) , no hologram either and the plastic box is rubbish with the DVD rattling loose inside. Do NOT buy ! PS I had to give it at least one star to rate it but in my opinion it doesnt deserve even one star.

Probably the most banal lyrics ever written for a so-called ‘musical’. Whoever threw them together should go back and study the masters; Oscar Hammerstein, Lorenz Hart, Cole Porter and Stephen Sondheim. There were no real ‘melodies’, the music sounds as though it has been written by a computer programme, and they all sound the same. At times I felt I was watching an episode of ‘Glee’, but then I thought… No, ‘Glee’ was much better than this! And Glee had no prententions of being anything other than what it was. By the end I decided I had to listen to some REAL musicals like hello Dolly, the Sound of Music, Carousel and into the woods, just to get this plastic mulch out of my brain. I’m now trying to think who I can pass the DVD on to as a birthday present. The trouble is… Most of my friends have musical taste, so it will be difficult !
The best film ever! The songs are phenomenal and extremely catchy. Great singing and acting from all the cast, it's great they've gone for actors who can actually sing. Me and my daughter could watch this over and over, it's a truly uplifting film and I would recommend it to anyone!
3.0 out of 5 starsEnjoyable film, but sick of auto tune
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 28, 2018
All my vocal pupils are raging about this and have been since Christmas time. The auto tune that pervades all recordings drives me mad and as a singer and teacher I find very upsetting. The singers on here don’t need to be auto tuned it’s just to homogenise all vocals to sound the same like plastic surgery for the voice. Ok rant over
