The 'Never Close Our Eyes' singer has said the film's singing lets the Tom Hooper adaptation down.

Hollywood actor Russell Crowe has responded to Adam Lambert's criticism of the actors' singing in the new film adaptation of Les Misérables, admitting that he doen't disagree with the singer's comments.

'Never Close Our Eyes' singer Adam posted his opinion of the film last week on Twitter where he criticised the decision to cast stars because of their acting talent over their singing ability, and claiming the score of director Tom Hooper's adaptation "suffered massively" because of the singing.

"Les Mis: Visually impressive w great emotional performances," Lambert tweeted. "But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers. 

"I felt like I should ignore the vocals and focus on the emotional subtext, but the singing was so distracting at times it pulled me out," Adam explained. "Sorry for being so harsh but it's so True.

Robin Hood star Russell Crowe, who stars in Les Misérables as the story's villain Javert, has now responded to the comments and admits he doesn't disagree with the critique.

"I don't disagree with Adam, sure it could have been sweetened," Russell tweeted yesterday (2nd January), in response to a fan question. "Hooper wanted it raw and real, that's how it is."

Tom Hooper's adaptation of Les Misérables is out in cinemas now and features an ensemble cast including Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne.
