"The Phantom of the Opera"

I haven't seen the theatre musical, or heard anything about the Phantom of the Opera until I was convinced by some of my friends to see this DVD. I was blown away by the amazing music in this musical. Andrew Lloyd Webber did an awesome job because the music leaves you breathless. And Emmy Rossum who plays Christine Daae, a young chorus girl, sang those songs with a voice that leaves you with goosebumps. The voice of Gerrad Butler is also captivating. It is based in a large Opera house. Throughout the film I was torn between two opinions of the Phantom. On the one hand, he was an insane lunatic, killing without thought. But still, on the other hand you felt almost sorry for him because of what he'd been through and drawn toward him because of his music, and his Love (or obsession) of Christine. I was on the edge of my seat, waiting to see whether Christine would choose the safe protection of her fiancee Raoul, or the dark dangerous Phantom, the one who taught her to sing. The result is a dramatic explosive ending. Definately worth watching

    I see you've posted this as a DVD review, but you've not mentioned the DVD. Are there any extras? If so, what are they and are they any good? If you add to this, or if you change it to be posted as a "Film Only" review, which can be done by accessing "edit review" above the review and changing the drop down menu under the "Which format are you reviewing?" question at the bottom, please let me know and I'll re-rate.
