Simply amazing!

It's endurable, I suppose, but I didn't really care for it. It just seemed like everyone freaking out over the Phantom killing people again and again and messing up the poor opera until the very end and he's shown compassion and then (gasp) disappears. If you like the musical then the recording is okay, but nothing compares to really seeing it in the theater with live performers and music.

VERY GOOD 2004 film version based on the novel "Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux and the stage musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber. It's interesting to see the various versions of this - especially the silent version from way back in the 1920's.

Wonderful! Love it so so so so much! Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum are delightful actors and beautiful singers!

One of my favorite musicals of all-time has been adapted into something that is less than stellar. There is a bizarre mixed quality about this film. On the one hand, they did have a large orchestra for the music, which gave it an epic quality. The sets and costumes were mouth-watering and gorgeous. The look of the film is amazing, as is the cinematography. However, the film is a musical. It is known for its singing music. And that is where the film falls down. The singing parts really needed to be sung by people who could actually sing. Otherwise, what's the point?

My absolute favorite musical! Gerard Butler adds a level of humanity to the Phantom, Emmy Rossum does a wonderful job as Christine, Minnie Driver kills it as Carlotta, and there's so much more! The director of Batman and Robin redeems himself in my eyes with this wonderful film. Beautiful music, fabulous costumes, and extravagant sets, this is one not to be missed!

Utter crap. Only Joel Schlockmeister would choose actors who can't sing for a musical. A tacky, shallow version of the glorious stage production.

The Auctioneer when instructing to raise the chandelier :

Raul and Christine: (singing) Then say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime."

Carlotta: I'm leaving now, I'm really leaving!

"The Phantom of The Opera is there..inside your mind".

"Can it be? Can it be Christine?"

"We're past the point of no return"

"Sing my angel of music"

"Help me make the music of the night"

Carlotta: (With Italian accent) And you! You're as BAD as him!

Christine: Who was that shape in the shadows? Whose is that face in the mask?

Christine: I remember... there was mist. Swirling mist upon a vast glassy lake... There were candles all around, and on the lake there was a boat... And in the boat, there was a man.

The Phantom: A toad, madam? Perhaps it is you who are the toad...

It is now 1881.[35] As Carlotta, the Opéra's resident soprano prima donna, rehearses for that evening's performance, a backdrop collapses without warning. "The Phantom! He's here!" the anxious cast members whisper. The Opera's new owners, Firmin and André, try to downplay the incident, but Carlotta refuses to continue and storms offstage. Madame Giry, the Opéra's ballet mistress, tells Firmin and André that Christine Daaé, a Swedish chorus girl and orphaned daughter of a prominent violinist, has been "well taught", and could sing Carlotta's role. With cancellation of the performance their only alternative, the owners reluctantly audition Christine, and to their surprise she is equal to the challenge. ("Think of Me")

May 25, 2010

Christine Daae was brought up in the Paris Opera house when her famous musician father suddenly dies, telling her he will send her and angel of music to look after her. She grows up and discovers that she is hearing a voice, telling her and teaching her to sing. She believes he is the angel of music but infact he is a disfigured genius, The phantom. He falls in love with her whilst. Although she is fasinated and drawn towards the phantom, she falls in love with her childhood sweetheart, The vicomte de changy- or Raoul. The phantom gets madly jealous, kidknapps Christine, and threatens to kill Raoul. She, to save Raoul, agrees to marry the phantom and kisses him. He then realizes what he's done and then makes Christine go with Raoul, disappearing forever.
