"Why did you choose this product?"
ITEM#: 3535016Those 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 a great way to experience Phantom of the Opera if you've never seen the broadway show before - which I haven't. I've listened to the music of the show for years, and it was nice to finally put faces and scenes to all the amazing music. It was disappointing that there were so few extras on the dvd, although the one highlight of the special edition was the inclusion of the deleted scene of the phantom singing a song not in the movie. Overall, if you are a fan of musicals, or of Phantom, this is a good deal. I would probably save a few dollars though and just get the standard edition. If you are a big Gerard Butler fan like me, then spring for the deluxe version to get the extra scene and some funny snipets of interviews.Read More
