Too much of that film clung to the theatre experience, which ultimately appears wildly ingenuine on the silver screen.

The whole production feels cut and pasted, and it doesn't translate well to the big screen...

Fans of musical theater will work themselves into a lather over Joel Schumacher's by-the-book film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's monotonous play, but most audiences will either fall asleep or hit the cinema doors running.

Fantastic sets, costumes, great art direction and imaginative camera work make this a visually stunning film. The musical score, not so much.

Without a proper Phantom, the entire enterprise sags monumentally, and, unfortunately, Butler is a disaster here.

Deserves to be locked up in a dank, water-filled dungeon and left to molder.

Tecnicamente impecável; no entanto, a adaptação medíocre de Weber não justifica mais de duas horas de projeção para apenas três canções aceitáveis (e Butler não sabe cantar).

The movie is so overblown, so much is meant to dazzle the eye, that it overwhelms the characters and the music.

'Pésele a quien le pese, es una de las mejores películas del 2004. Injustamente ignorada en Estados Unidos pero que el tiempo seguramente la convertirá en un clásico'

Phantom is as bloated as Monty Python's Mr. Creosote, and is so stagebound that it's just about as agile as that character.

The big-screen rendition of The Phantom of the Opera resembles a ridiculously expensive installment of Masterpiece Theatre.
January 27, 2005
My own reaction to the current version fashioned by Mr. Schumacher is one of pure stupefaction.

An awkward, overstuffed and occasionally painful delusion of grandeur ...
