The Greatest Showman

A show that shoots for the stars, but hits the moon.

P.T Barnum has an extraordinary need for greatness, but a not so extraordinary bank balance to match. What starts as a naive passion project soon escalates into one of the greatest shows in the world, as Barnum rallies the most unlikely of troops to put on a truly unique show.

With Hugh Jackman sitting front and center at the helm of this film as B.T. Barnum, and an equally impressive cast of supporting actors, from Zac Efron to Michelle Williams, this film certainly provides the talent to back this infamously impactful story of inequality and ambition.

Director Michael Gracey provides a backdrop that relishes the acting talent, as all components of this heartfelt and authentic film culminate to create a visionary dream that envisages a world without judgment, with music at its very core.

As comedic crime drama beach spoofs go, this one is just as ridiculous as is to be expected.

A lifeguards work is never over, especially when you’re an LA County lifeguard, who’s roles apparently encompass the most unlikely of tasks such as undercover crime investigations; just another day at the beach for these guards.

Though David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson have had their characters upgraded in the form of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron, the basic premise is the same; everyone is astonishingly good looking and the beach crimes are as unrealistic as ever.

Despite an absolutely abysmal string of comedic slow-motion running scenes and face-palm worthy jokes, this film still manages to bring a smile to the faces of its begrudging audience.

The basic plot may be no different to its 1990s crime series counterpart and the special effects may have you cringing in your seats, but there is definitely something lovable about the sheer scale of this films ridiculousness.
