ITEM#: 3533144Those who thought that smoke machines and cobwebbed candelabras were the stuff of Halloween parties and dance clubs need to think again. In Joel Schumacher's film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway musical THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, these moody set devices--and countless others--make every scene an atmospheric vision of souped-up 19th-century Gothic bliss. Christine Daee (a luminescent Emmy Rossum) is a tortured young star who is haunted by the voice of the phantom (Gerard Butler--who also played the lead in DRACULA 2000), a musician who hides in the shadows to hide a facial disfigurement, yet sings to her obsessively. Dwelling in the dark, damp chambers beneath the Paris opera house, the phantom lords over the cast and management with artistic autocracy--he writes the shows, casts them, and threatens all who disobey his plans with dramatically violent outbursts. But when his young student Christine falls for the rich and dapper Raoul (Patrick Wilson), the phantom descends into madness. Webber's memorable songs are performed with aplomb by Rossum, whose background includes singing with the Metropolitan Opera, and Wilson and Butler provide ample accompaniment. One of the treats of the proceedings is Minnie Driver's deeply exaggerated portrayal of the jealous diva, giving this PHANTOM a very appropriate dose of comic relief.

This is one of the best musicals I have ever seen. Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum are amazing, as well as Patrick Wilson.Read More
The Phantom of the Opera has been around for years and I think this is the best production I have ever seen. Gerard Butler is the best Phantom I have ever seen (he creates the Phantom from his gut and brings such feeling to his character) and Patrick Wilson has the most awesome voice. It is the most colorful and brilliantly done remake of the Phantom of the Opera and I don't think it could be directed any better. I have watched it countless times when I need a pick-me-up (so inspiring). If you love Broadway, this is a movie you will want to see.Read More
