Seven Gunn reviews “The Greatest Showman” on ChicagoNow


The Greatest Showman is a great disappointment of sorts. Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zach Efron, and Zendaya are all wonderful actors and actresses, but the screenplay by Jenny Bicks and Bill Condon didn’t do these fine folks the justice they deserve! The film doesn’t take advantage of its position of a late release smack dab in the middle of awards season. It falls short of the promise of being an indelible, momentous spectacle. A whole lotta hoo-ha and not enough substance (me with sad face emoji).
