Format: DVD
I admit that I wasn't expecting a lot from this film. It does have a typically 80s production look, but aside from the begining this didn't hinder my enjoyment of the film at all.

Both the Phantom's mask and his lair are rather more gothic-looking than in some other productions, and while the film does veer from the original story for some parts, the overall spirit of the novel is still there. In the 'great reveal' scene the lines are actually taken directly from the Leroux text, which I feel helps link the two versions while still allowing them seperate identites.

Acting is good - particularly Maximilian Schell, who makes a wonderfully tortured Phantom. Jane Seymour is lovely as always, and Michael York is, well, brilliant (I'm a bit of a York fan).

If I was to give a negative at all, I think perhaps that there was a strange lack of atmosphere in several places. Although I enjoyed it I wasn't particularly gripped - whether this is due to how many adaptations of Phantom I've seen/read, or to the film itself I can't say.

Still, I would reccomend this to anyone except the Leroux purists out there.

I quite liked this version of the classic story. It had some quite creepy bits and is worth a look.
