Own this on iTunes but so worth writing about here - pace, tension, cinematography, twists... all in there in this film. I’ve watched it a good handful of times and always grips me from beginning to end. One of the classics - not one of those shallow, eye candy, trailer spoiler, biggest waste of 106mins I’ll never get back moments. Do yourself a favour - get amongst it!

This is one of the greatest musical movies i've ever seen, with an outstanding powerful message of how the perseverance can make us greater, amd never stop inspite all the barrier we could have in the middle. It is absolutely inspirational and man if you like music like jazz you will enjoy it even more, outstanding movie.
