Brilliant!

This movie is brilliantly acted and wonderfully directed. Catherine Zeta-Jones superb portrayal of saucy Velma Kelly is matched against Renee Zellweger's equally manipulative Roxie Hart. Neither of these characters is worth redeeming, but the audience will root for them anyway.

Set in Prohibition Chicago, where jazz clubs are sheik and murder is a form of entertainment, Roxie Hart (Zellweger) is on trial for her life. Enter Billy Flynn (Richard Gere) a flamboyant lawyer more interested in manipulating the press than whether his client is guilty or innocent. Also features Queen Latifah as the warden who takes care of her charges...for a price!

The musical sequences are very well done, esp "Press Room Rag" and of course the signature "All that Jazz". Also, kudos to John Reilly whose "Cellophane" solo is heartbreaking poignant.

10 of 10!

~Rob Marshell's Masterpiece!~

I saw Chicago with my sister yesterday and we were hoping that he movie as going to be fun. We were fulfilled to the fullest. The movie Lavishly well done, energetic and fun to listen to, Chicago is easily on the top 10 best musicals ever. The music in the movie, the rhythm just utterly spellbinding, that's how incredible Chicago is. The movie mostly benefits from it extremely talented cast. Catherine Zeta-Jones shines in Chicago and gives the performance of her lifetime. She well-deserved her Oscar. John C. Rielly, Renee Zellwegger and Queen Latifa deserved their Oscar Nominations.

The cinematography, sound, art directions, and especially the costume design they were all expertly done. I resisting the urge to dance and tap my shoe. What an amazing production it took to create this film. Everyone deserved their Oscar Wins or nominations whomever took part in the production. 1920s Chicago comes alive in breathtaking detail. Everyone whom likes musicals or music should definitely have a listen and watch Chicago.

Rob Marshell truly out did himself in this masterpiece. 10/10

Beyond amazing-and all that jazz....

I had already written a review of this awhile ago(long since buried under many other reviews) but wanted to comment again because I was reading all the bad reviews and just couldn't believe it. Chicago is a masterpiece. Even if one doesn't like musicals or this is a type of film that doesn't appeal to them I don't see how anyone could argue on the direction and acting of this film. The fact is, there are not that many musicals that are worthy of winning an Oscar and this one was and did. It was amazingly put together from start to finish. I can see someone who doesn't like musicals maybe not liking the movie but if one just watches the movie objectively I can't see how the Dynamic dancing, singing, acting wouldn't overwhelm even the biggest skeptic. The movie managed to create a similar atmosphere to watching a Broadway show-it's really unbelievable because this movie so easily could have been awful.

Absolutely every musical number was good-most being great. There are no flaws to this movie and it was done as a movie in such a wonderfully creative way. Chicago deserves to be up in the IMDb top 250 easily.

Chicago the play, comes alive on screen as a movie, and one feels so Alive watching it. It's mood is infectious, and the dance numbers are so good, you don't want them to end.

I think Chicago was deserving of every award it got and is easily a 10 of 10. Richard Gere was robbed-should have been nominated in the best actor category. EVERYONE was just amazing. I've seen this movie 4 times now and each time love it more. I can't even imagine seeing it now on Broadway, Roxie in my mind will forever be associated with Renee Zelwegger. 10 of 10 for the movie and all the actors/actresses!
