Thumbs up - Phantom of the Opera ( the movie) Phantom of the Opera ( the movie)

We just saw this last night with our 17 and 12 year old for New Years Eve.

It was lovely, and if you enjoyed Andrew Lloyd Weber's stage production, you will probably like this as well. It is a musical, so if you don't like that genre, you may not enjoy it.

It stars Gerard Butler as The Phantom, Emmy Rossum as Christine, and Patrick Wilson as Raoul. Minnie Driver has a part as the lead soprano, Carlotta, and provides the comic relief for the film.

It was very well done with beautiful costumes, and the singing was just gorgeous. My DD had already been to see the movie before Christmas, and got the soundtrack for Christmas. It's lovely to listen to, and to watch. I loved a scene that appeared to be filmed in a snow storm in a graveyard, where Christine is visiting her father's grave.

If you liked the stage production, I think it's safe to say that you'll enjoy the movie as well. Some critics didn't like Gerard Butler's voice for the Phantom, but I loved his voice.

Phantom of the Opera ( the movie)

I just saw it today and I loved it, it brought me to tears a couple of times. I have also seen the stage production but I get to caught up in the costumes, singers and scenery to enjoy the show. I was able to follow the story line better in the movie. Also, the actress that played Christine was so good. I loved it and plan on seeing it again.

Hi Cherri,
It had me close to tears as well, and you're right, the story was easier to follow. I'm glad you enjoyed it as well, and to Mikaela, if you loved the stage production in Toronto, I'm sure you'll love it as well.
I had seen it there as well, once with my DH, and I took my kids to see it a second time. Cherri is right, it is easier to follow the story line in the movie. I would love to see the movie a second time too, if I get the chance.

You mean we got it earlier than you?! It's been here for a couple of weeks.

Phantom of the Opera ( the movie)

I'm pretty sure it isn't here yet -- I check when I go into Milan on Wednesday, but usually it takes months (though to be fair that is when the films are dubbed -- they probably wouldn't dub an opera ----- would they??? ugh).

Phantom of the Opera ( the movie)

Saw it yesterday, I think it was the best musical production to be made a film that I had seen, My you need to make concessions as you seem to lose a dimension when they make musicals into movies ( definately not another Evita, the only positive in that was Anotonio Banderes)

Smile - Phantom of the Opera ( the movie) PHANTOM

I m stuck here in Toad Suck Ferry Missouri and it is not here. We have only one theater in 30 miles; so I am guessing it will not get here at all...we still have THE KRANKS for goodness sake! I did see the making of the PHANTOM on E! and Sir Weber said he always wanted an untrained voice for the phantom. Butler was Angelina Jolie's hunk in the second TOMB RAIDER movie which I was forced to endure with my spouse for my birthday(I think). My point being that Butler was yummy in that....
Rossum was 16 when she started filming this but she had been on stage at the Met since she was 12...I LOVED the play and I hope most fervently that I will get to see the film; although, there is always the DVD...sigh...good things come to those who wait and wait and...

Phantom of the Opera ( the movie)


Phantom opened in "select" theaters before Christmas and is to be in theaters nationwide around Jan. 22. I, too, am out in the middle on "nowhere" and not sure when I will get to see it. I have seen the stage production 3 times and am looking forward to seeing the movie and buying the DVD.


It is done in English so they will have to dub it.
