Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Hamilton is hard to review as, if this was an actual film and not just a taping of the stage performance, it would easily rate as the best thing I have seen on screen this year. Hell despite all that it’s still the best thing I’ve seen this year… it’s just not quite a film. Obviously Hamilton arrived with a lot of hype and damn it did not disappoint. Hamilton delivers and then some. In fact you could say Disney Plus gave us exactly what we needed in these tricky times. Hamilton is simply breathtaking – an in your face, relentless, powerful and fun rap musical about someone you’ve probably never heard about starring that guys whose in everything. Can’t recommend this enough.
Best Bit: All of it.
