'The Phantom of the Opera' tells the story of a disfigured musical genius who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera House, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. When he falls fatally in love with the lovely young soprano Christine, the Phantom devotes himself to creating a new star for the Opera. The stage musical sensation is magically and hauntingly transformed by director Joel Schumacher into a lavish film production, sweeping audiences to new heights of sight and sound grandeur. Gerard Butler (as the Phantom), Emmy Rossum (as Christine) and Patrick Wilson (as Raoul) play out the fateful love triangle that unfurls in splendor, suspense.

Joel Schumacher's imaginative film version of Gaston Leroux's novel features 15 minutes of new music specially composed for the project by Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

This is a stunning adaptation of the massive musical Phantom Of The Opera. The sets are lavish and so detailed, they really are mesmerising. The acting is brillaint and Gerard Butler and Emmie Rossum give award winning performances as the two leads. Their vocals are outstanding, especially Rossum's as she was only 16 when she filmed this, she is immensly talented for someone of her age.
The supporting actors are also great, and the film as a whole is just brilliant!
The extras on the dvd are fantastic, there is hours of bonus stuff on how the sets were made, the recording of the music, cast interviews and behind the scenes stuff, the extras are definately worth watching.
The dvd is recorded in 5.1 surround sound so if you do not have this make sure you change the sound settings on the dvd before playing it otherwise you will get no sound! This is a bargain price so grab it now!

when i watched this film on dvd i was amazed at the sheer
brilliance of the performances from a young 'emmy rossum' as 'christine' ( what a magical voice from one so young),also a polished showing as the 'phantom' from 'gerard rossum'
the phantom becomes obsessed with 'christine's' vocal

i'm sure most will be familiar with the story,but,if you have
not yet seen this be prepared to be impressed.
this will send a shiver down your spine,it's a truley emmotional ride,great and familiar songs,along with the
impressive orchestral backing throughout.
great if you can watch and listen with surround sound.

 OK...nowhere near as good as the stage production

When I heard that someone was making a film version of the musical of the phantom, I was really looking forward to it. I had seen Phantom at Her Majesty's theatre and that was absolutely breathtaking in the theatre. When I saw this I knew it wouldn't be as magical as the stage version, and I was right.
The Phantom isn't as mysterious or as magical in the film compared to the stage version. In the stage version, he shoots fireballs from a walking stick and in the Masquerade scene he disappears at the bottom of the staircase and 1 second later, reappears at the top of the stairs. Surely all this would be included in the film? Sadly not.
The amazing costume the Phantom wears in the stage production (with the red death costume and skull mask and great big red hat) isn't in the film, Why?
And finally, the phantoms disfigurement in the film isn't half as grisly as the stage production. In the stage production, he has swollen lips and his skull protrudes out of his head!! In the film, it just looks like a bad case of eczema.

If you're a fan of Phantom, buy it but don't expect great things (the singing in it isn't all that great either. however the guy who plays Raoul is quite good)

This will never be anywhere near as good as the stage version

(I don't understand why they didn't just film the stage version)
