The music was great, but everything else felt pushed back in favor of the visuals.

Not really big in musicals but because of its popularity, I had to watch this with a friend. Has one of the immortal soundtracks, set pieces and costumes were good. Only qualms I had was the pace of the story, its believability and performances. If only the productions didn't feel rushed in creating the film, it could have been way better. It wasn't dreary, not one of the classics but if your in a mood for a musical, this might fit your quench.

Alright Musical

The Phantom of the Opera was alright, at best.

The story was great, but there was something lacking within it. Somehow, there was something about being a phantom of an opera theater that seemed weird. I always thought there would be a way to kick him out of the theater, even if he lived there or not.

The characters were fine, but some of them seemed fake, almost. There was some scenes in the movie outside of the songs that made the characters seem overacted. During songs, everything was fine, except certain parts, you could tell that the person wasn't actually singing. I wish they had gotten people in the film that could actually sing. The entire movie, acting wise, probably would've been better as well.

The Phantom of the Opera is a good first musical, but there are better music...

LOVE ME...THAT'S ALL I ASK OF YOU

OK..OK... i hear ya. You stageplay brainiacs. It's not the same as the original. They never are. And I've never seen the stage rendition myself. But you also need to consider how many different times the novel and film had undergone revisions and adaptations. The French author GASTON LEROUX when he wrote the novel " Le Fantôme de l'Opéra " didn't have a clue how it would evolve into the longest running Broadway musical ever.

But if you were to set it apart from the stage act, and consider it as a plain movie production, you'd see the beauty of it! EMMY ROSSUM (CHRISTINE) was just radiating a sweet aura, innocent and beautiful. The Scottish actor GERARD BUTLER (THE PHANTOM) has undeniably took over the sketchy character of Christine's ghostly mentor without a dent. Just fantab...

The Phantom of the Opera is one of the most amazingly powerful musicals I've ever seen. The music is moving and beautiful. This particular remake of the classic story is the best yet on film but has some very key problems. One of those being the Phantom. The voice of the actor who played this role was flat, emotionless and didn't fit the part. He didn't give a believable performance and it made watching some of my favorite scences difficult. On the flip side Emmy Rosum delivered an outstanding performance in the role of Christine as well as Minnie Driver as Carlotta. The sets, special effect and transitions were also very beautiful and added to the entire experience. The opening overture looked very beautiful as the old broken down opera house transformes seamlessly to the same house in i...
