A handsomely mounted adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's smash hit musical, Joel Schumacher's film should satisfy any fan of the stage version. But those that haven't had the theatrical pleasure may find it overlong and repetitive as it creaks into its third hour. A disfigured so-called Phantom (Butler) hides in the bowels of the Parisian Opera House, harbouring feelings for the beautiful ingénue singer Christine (Rossum) who is already being romanced by the theatre's young patron Raoul (Wilson).
