Atom User Reviews for In The Heights
Makes you proud to be Latinx
everyone will enjoy this filmed musical...
Excellent cast, storyline & movie!!!
Loved every minute of this movie. Third time seeing it and I can’t wait to see it again.
It was a well directed movie with a great cast. I went into it unfamiliar with the music or the premise. I find Lin-Manuel Miranda's music to be somewhat one-note and one dimensional. In the Heights sounds like Hamilton sounds like Moana. And I feel like this musical isn't going to age well, much like Rent. It is one of those musicals that is more interested in being "woke" than the actual story. But, in spite of it, it was a good movie.
A great, lively score with a visual freshness that made it an incredible movie going experience.
If I have to give an honest review it is one word, Flawless! If you are a fan of Hamilton, stay until the end of the credits for Mr. Softee cameo.
it was so cool, fun, down to earth.
An inspiring story that gives you all the feels and has you bopping’ in your seat.
Decent film adaptation of a stage musical. I hadn't had the opportunity to see it live and was looking forward to this movie. I loved the dancing + love stories, but ultimately was just okay overall. Similar music to Hamilton, which gets old after 2 1/2 hours.
I saw the stage production 10 years ago, and the movie version did not disappoint.
This is a lesson in Latin dance. Inspiring.
It was the best movie I’ve seen in a long time!! I loved it and recommend it to anyone!!
Amazing cast, sweet storyline, memorable characters, beautiful and astounding soundtrack and the message is heartwarming! It doesn’t matter if you’re a Hamilton fan or not. See this movie! It’s truly a one of a kind experience!!
Makes LaLa land look like a high school production
It has a great punch in the beginning and dies down
Enjoyable but could have done without the racial/political undertones
SO MUCH JOY!! Loved all the dancing and singing and DIVERSITY!!! Also, the Hamilton cameos!!! Love it so so much! Highly recommend! 💜
Cool movie. Good cast. The music is similar to Hamilton. 👍
It was phenomenal
too long for a all musical movie, I left
This is a stirring valentine to a neighborhood and its people that, as the film tells it, stared gentrification in the eye and stood their ground, staying true to their cultural identity.
In The Heights’ boisterous tone — its uplifting mix of defiance and perseverance — deftly communicates the sense of scraping by but dreaming of more, facing discrimination but refusing to be silenced.
This movie succeeds at the hardest task a movie musical needs to pull off: the musical numbers, with few exceptions, soar in the way an in-story song has to soar to convince us that, given this situation and these characters, “randomly bursting into song” is a perfectly sensible thing to do.
