Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review A stylish cast and some clever scripting solutions help "Chicago" make the transition from stage to screen with considerable appeal intact. But despite these assets, plus the enduring kick of the superlative Kander & Ebb song score, this film version dilutes a good deal of the live show's sizzle and wit...Viewed in terms of its attempt to resurrect the musical as a contemporary film genre, "Chicago" is way ahead of lifeless blunders like "A Chorus Line." But it's arguably less buoyant or inventive than recent unconventional, and artistically controversial, tuners such as "Moulin Rouge" or "Dancer in the Dark"...Marshall's choreography retains some distinctive Fosse influences, particularly in the opening "All That Jazz" number -- nevertheless hampered more than any other song by excessive cutting away from the dancers.

Review The movie represents good, solid entertainment. It's not nearly as rousing as the Broadway revival (then again, it's rare that the cinematic version of a musical comes close to the stage incarnation), but, for those unable or unwilling to see a live production, it represents a sparkling replacement. The film strikes a nice balance between the lavishly overproduced likes of Baz Lurhmann's Moulin Rouge and the less openly flamboyant movies from the '50s. The style, by intention, echoes that of the late, great choreographer Fosse...The nine or ten song-and-dance numbers allow us to enjoy Chicago on a less cerebral, more visceral level than might be the case if this was not a musical, but there's still a fair amount of substance to be considered. It's a pleasure to note that the return of the movie-adapted stage musical is such an unqualified success.

Review "Chicago" continues the reinvention of the musical that started with "Moulin Rouge." Although modern audiences don't like to see stories interrupted by songs, apparently they like songs interrupted by stories. The movie is a dazzling song and dance extravaganza, with just enough words to support the music and allow everyone to catch their breath between songs. You can watch it like you listen to an album, over and over; the same phenomenon explains why "Moulin Rouge" was a bigger hit on DVD than in theaters..."Chicago" is a musical that might have seemed unfilmable, but that was because it was assumed it had to be transformed into more conventional terms. By filming it in its own spirit, by making it frankly a stagy song-and-dance revue, by kidding the stories instead of lingering over them, the movie is big, brassy fun.
