From director Joel Schumacher ("Phone Booth," "A Time to Kill") comes this big-screen adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's smash-hit stage musical! The Phantom, a disfigured musical genius, haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. He takes an interest in a young singer and, through tutelage and terror, helps her rise to stardom, only to see her fall in love with a handsome young man. The Phantom vows revenge and kidnaps her to be his eternal bride, but ultimately is transformed by the compassion of the young woman, and the love she feels for her young man, making the ultimate sacrifice in order that she may live and be happy. Starring Gerard Butler ("300," "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life"), Emmy Rossum ("The Day After Tomorrow," "Mystic River"), Oscar-nominee Miranda Richardson ("The Hours," "Sleepy Hollow"), Emmy and Golden Globe-nominee Patrick Wilson ("Hard Candy," TV's "Angels in America"), Simon Callow ("Shakespeare in Love") and Ciarán Hinds ("Road to Perdition," "The Sum of All Fears"). Nominated for three Academy Awards!]]>
I love having this one in my dvd library. It's ageless, romantic, mysterious & so well done. It's hard to believe that they were able to make this stage production into a film. Read morePublished 2 days ago by CPwrs

To the original poster.... what were you expecting? It is a mysterious story, all of the items you read have been in previous films in way or another. I have a feeling you saw this not knowing what the story was about.

|Is the bonus disk worth the price??||
Definitely. It has the history of the STAGE Phantom and it's great to see Crawford and Brightman in the roles. Makes the DVD cast pale by comparison, though. If your wife watched the stage version, then the two-disc version is a must.
