The Movie is Phenomenal, The Play is incredible, and the soundtrack is unforgetable. My Wife and I Love all three. We plan on going back to Las Vegas and seeing the play again at the Venitian. Its Breathtaking and a must for all to see. 02/18/2009, 11:49 pm

Amazing! I loved the movie. The effects are phenomenal; the music spectacular! Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler shine in their roles, and the whole cast is great.

It's gorgeous nonsense to look at, and in director Joel Schumacher's hands, "Phantom" emerges as one of those queer works of art that actually improve somehow as they get tackier and more removed from the original. Full Review

The real problem with "Phantom" is the problem with Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals in general. It's a slow-moving orgy of lowbrow grandiosity that's as tedious as it is overblown and pretentious. Full Review
Scotsman Gerard Butler does a fine job as the charismatic, ghostly character. Full Review
The New York Times
Lord Lloyd Webber's thorough acquaintance with the canon of 18th- and 19th-century classical music is not in doubt, but his attempt to force a marriage between that tradition and modern musical theater represents a victory of pseudo-populist grandiosity over taste - an act of cultural butchery akin to turning an aviary of graceful swans and brilliant peacocks into an order of Chicken McNuggets.

Made for the most excruciating two-and-a-half hours I've ever spent in a theater. Full Review
