I like this film a great deal because of the overall spectacle aspect. It is a classic beauty and beast tale as well, which is indeed a timeless tale. I do note here too that many professional critics don’t like this movie but I’ve noticed over the years that critics in general don’t like what Andrew Lloyd Webber had produced and thus they “criticize” accordingly.

Overall I do not think the story is the best or most unique thing about this movie

I had never been a big musical guy, but after listening to the main theme for this song it really got me interested in this movie. Overall I do not think the story is the best or most unique thing about this movie, but what I am in love with are the songs from this movie, and it is because of this movie that I actively go and look for new musicals to watch. I have now seen les miserables, the Hunchback of notre dame play and many more. I really enjoyed this movie even if it is not the best acted or written I still think it is worth a watch or buy if just for the music.

Very Good Interpretation, Great Music & Acting

This elaborates, in a creative way, on the complicated relationship of the characters. Wonderful cinematography, script, music (Andrew Lloyd Webber of course). Although some critics did not like the casting of Gerard Butler as the Phantom because his voice isn’t the quality of Michael Crawford, it’s believable because I expected Christine and Raul’s voices to be the highlight. He did a good job singing. The entire cast did an outstanding job, the acting was good. I don’t compare it to the stage productions, thus I enjoyed it very much.

Technically Its Superb!

I won’t address the actual film content. If you like Phantom, you’ll like the presentation. Plain and Simple. Enough have written about the details that I shant bore anyone with my viewpoint.

Love it! A must watch

Love it! A must watch. Some reviews have critizised this remake, noting Butler’s less then professional singing voice. Well DONT listen to them. Butlers voice is moving, he portrays the phantoms yearning for his companion Christine’s affection to perfection. While I can understand the concept of the play, light vs dark, good from evil. I would much rather have stayed in the dungeon with the phantoms passionate pleas then with Raouls puppy love. Trust me a must watch!

The Phantom of the Opera (Blue-ray)

The production values of this move are great. The sets are opulent and make this a worthy entry into the Andrew Lloyd Webber sweepstakes. I enjoyed the music when I first heard it years ago. I enjoy the film except for one major thing. Gerard Butler is no Michael Crawford. He isn’t even close. He must have known someone to get the part. I hate to ponder what he might have done to get the part. Butler gets through the songs….kind of barely. I expected someone with a voice. My mistake. That must be why the Blue-ray disc was under $10 at Barnes Noble. Save your money and get the PBS version from Royal Albert Hall. It won’t have the fine sets and atmosphere, but it will have music that you can appreciate.

I loved this movie. It was recommended to me by a friend a couple of months ago and now I can’t get enough of the Phantom of the Opera. I would recommend the movie to anyone who loves musicals and love triangles.

Understood Loud & Clear

Actually went to the live onstage performance here in Cleveland but it was so loud I literally could not understand the lyrics, especially if it included the orchestra and more than one person. I was surprised to see Gerard Butler was in a version when I got home so I watched it and was not disappointed. It was nice to understand what they were saying!
