The opening of Les Miserables, Look Down is a work song in Prison where we see the desperation of those serving their sentences and this is where protagonist Jean Valjean is freed. It's one of my favorite songs of the musical and is quite underrated, as the power and energy it brings is essential in kicking off the story. It's got a real power of showing the desperation the prisoners face as Javert looks over them.

Now there are problems with this track, firstly it's not the full thing as the song is much longer both in the stage musical and in the film, we get only one real rendition of "Look Down" before the track pleasurably cuts to Javert and freeing Jean Valjean. Honestly why cut it? The opening really gets you into the 19 years of Jean Valjean's stay in prison in some perfectly written lines of wretched misery. The added spectacle of pulling in the ship that takes place in the movie is also a spectacular show of the man's punishment.

But anyway the other major issue is Russel Crowe. Out of all the singers he's getting the worst and being honest he makes me cringe with his out-of-place singing voice. it doesn't have any emotion in it and lacks any of the malice of the character. Hugh Jackman is really giving the "singing live" idea credit with his exhausted and yet relieved singing but Crowe just sounds, bad, he just doesn't convey the emotions of the scene.

So despite the problem of Russel Crowe and the cut down length of the song in general, the orchestral arrangement is still bombastic and magnificent and Hugh Jackman gives a very good first impression here. 3.5/5

Mere words can not describe the emotions that listening to this music evokes. Takes you right into the story. Magnificent

Really good voice for this sort of film. Hugh J put his all into this song and was a great one to start the film with.
Certainly recommend it to friends
