Best ever!

One of my favorite musicals of all-time has been adapted into something that is less than stellar. There is a bizarre mixed quality about this film. On the one hand, they did have a large orchestra for the music, which gave it an epic quality. The sets and costumes were mouth-watering and gorgeous. The look of the film is amazing, as is the cinematography. However, the film is a musical. It is known for its singing music. And that is where the film falls down. The singing parts really needed to be sung by people who could actually sing. Otherwise, what's the point?

My absolute favorite musical! Gerard Butler adds a level of humanity to the Phantom, Emmy Rossum does a wonderful job as Christine, Minnie Driver kills it as Carlotta, and there's so much more! The director of Batman and Robin redeems himself in my eyes with this wonderful film. Beautiful music, fabulous costumes, and extravagant sets, this is one not to be missed!

Utter crap. Only Joel Schlockmeister would choose actors who can't sing for a musical. A tacky, shallow version of the glorious stage production.

This has to be the most wonderful and well made version of the Phantom that I have ever seen, Absolutely loved every second of this film. Didn't know Butler could sing, he is so talented and good looking as well. Emma has a voice like an angel. Must see. Excellent film.

Christine: I remember... there was mist. Swirling mist upon a vast glassy lake... There were candles all around, and on the lake there was a boat... And in the boat, there was a man.

It is now 1881.[35] As Carlotta, the Opéra's resident soprano prima donna, rehearses for that evening's performance, a backdrop collapses without warning. "The Phantom! He's here!" the anxious cast members whisper. The Opera's new owners, Firmin and André, try to downplay the incident, but Carlotta refuses to continue and storms offstage. Madame Giry, the Opéra's ballet mistress, tells Firmin and André that Christine Daaé, a Swedish chorus girl and orphaned daughter of a prominent violinist, has been "well taught", and could sing Carlotta's role. With cancellation of the performance their only alternative, the owners reluctantly audition Christine, and to their surprise she is equal to the challenge. ("Think of Me")
