5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the critics fool you!, February 17, 2005
This review is from: The Phantom of the Opera (Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD)
This movie is superb! I really loved the stage musical but this is ten times better...no, a hundred times better. I even had people who said they disliked the stage version comment on how great this film is. I don't understand why the critics are so harsh when the viewers are enjoying it. I should know, I've seen it nine times already...and I'm not the only one.

There are some prominent changes from the stage version, but if you've never seen the stage version this movie is just as enjoyable. Gerard Butler did a phenomenal job. I myself was a little leary of him, knowing he's no Michael Crawford, but now I like him a lot better than Michael Crawford. He makes the Phantom more emotional, powerful, and more easier to sympathize with. Gerard definately deserved an Oscar nod for his role, but that's neither here nor there.

I won't give away any of the surprises of the film, but I will tell you something...you won't be disappointed. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll get mad, you'll feel sad, you'll want to jump for joy, then you'll want to throw things...it's a very emotional piece and not just for women (believe it or not, more men have cried in the theater than women).

This is a must buy! You may even want two copies because you will wear out one of them for sure.

I'm glad to read that other people were as emotionally affected by the film. I fell in love with the Phantom. It's like being in love with a 200 year old man. Gerard Butler was awsome as the Phantom, no one else could have played the part better. Wish I could have been Christine, I would have have made a better choice.

Yes, my thoughts also. Gerard is much more manly and handsome.
