I love the music in The Phantom of the Opera. Andrew Lloyd Webber has composed a hauntingly beautiful score, and the movie is well acted by Gerard Butler (The Phantom) and Emmy Rossum (his love, Christine).
The Phantom of the Opera is a sad tale of a genius who composes beautiful music and must hide from the world in the catacombs of 1870s Paris because of a horrible disfigurement. The lovely Christine is a soprano with an exquisite voice, and The Phantom is driven by his love for her. What will he do as a result of this unquenchable love? Will he continue to hide from the world, from her, behind a mask which obscures his horrible secret? Or will he allow the one he loves so dearly to see him and risk having his heart broken by her rejection?
The Phantom of the Opera is rated PG-13 because of some violent images, and runs 141 minutes.
This movie is one that I enjoyed watching very much, in fact, one of my favorites because of the combination of a great story, a great cast, and the phenomenal music of Andrew Lloyd Webber. There are a few special features, such as a theatrical trailer and subtitles, but who needs bonuses when the movie is a bonus in and of itself.
