The box has a glaring error which will really put some people off: it states the film is in 1.33.1 ratio (that 4.3 or Fullscreen to others).
Well, I can assure you that it's not. It's in widescreen 16.9. It looks like 1.85.1 to me.

At first glance the picture isn't brilliant - but it DOES look better than the DVD version.

Edit: Having now watched the film I can confirm that it is a massive improvement over its DVD counterpart; but it's not brilliant. There are still some shots that are a bit soft and grainy - but none of it is too distracting. The sound is PCM 2.0 and does an adequate job; but given the films music-derived plot I can't help feeling that a 5.1 DTS audio track would have made a difference. Oh well.
Disappointed that there are no extras. The only menu options are Play and Chapters. Also, there are no subtitles at all.

All in all, this is an OK release of an OK film, but if like me you're a fan of the film you won't really care. It's a worthy upgrade from the DVD and that's what matters.

For anyone who's never seen the film it's a bit more gruesome than other adaptations but pretty much follows a similar storyline. A few liberties have been taken but they're acceptable. Other people have given more in depth review - which is why my review focuses only on blu-ray.

I've only seen this movie (all the way through, anyway) once or twice. I really liked it, but not quite as much as I like (sorry, LOVE) the musical, even the 2004 movie. This is mainly because I'm not that much of a horror/gore fan, and this film does have some very gory scenes (hence the 15 or 18 rating - on here, the picture of the blu-ray says it's a 15, but the product description says it's an 18, which I think is more suitable), but thankfully it's not constant throughout the movie.

Anyway, Robert Englund is easily the best actor in the entire movie. Even though the character is, in some ways, very like Freddy Krueger, but the character is different enough that I never thought "Hey, it's Freddy in Phantom". Actually, in some parts his performance is quite moving. Some of his one-liners could have been quite cheesy, but they work even better than some of Freddy's one-liners in the Nightmare movies ("Bon Appetit" from the fifth movie is a perfect example).

I highly recommend it.

I've been looking for the DVD copy of this film for almost a year!! It was available on YouTube, then got removed and only small clips available, then appeared on Netflix! But deep down, I wanted the DVD as I am a massive Phantom of the Opera fan! I was so happy and so amazed there was one available - I didn't care if the cover was in French, as long as the film was English (which it is) I was happy. Sure, price was a little steep (£20 plus postage) but since I had been looking for a long time, I figured "what the hell?!"
And now I am a happy girl!! :D

I've been in love with Phantom of the Opera ever since I saw the production at the theatre about four years ago, and when I heard of this film I suspected it would just be another remake which does no justice to the actual impossible love story between Christine and the Phantom, yet I was wrong. I saw this at the cinema a few days ago and can honestly say it was breathtaking, with a brilliant Christine who sung superbly and didn't let the songs down, a mysterious Phantom who's deep and rich voice emitted the spooky 'angel of music' sound perfectly and a splended portrayal of the labyrinth which all came together to create a masterpiece. But still I stand by my views that Christine should fall in love with the Phantom and live with him rather than Raoul, who frankly gets on my nerves as he so easily 'woos' Christine. The relationship between the Phantom and Christine is so much deeper and sensual, giving the sense of proper chemistry.

This was a film I originally got as an ex rental VHS back in 1990 and had been searching for it high and low. Why I liked it -- Jill Schoelen was the perfect Christine, and the horror of the original story was nicely captured. It had some nice sets, nice music, and good performances, plus some good gore. Why the film was relocated to London I'm not sure, but no bother. Shame that the studio presumably, had to spoil a good script with stupid "Freddy Kreuger"-esque one liners ("You're suspended" as a theatre-hand meets his death while dangled on some ropes particularly grated.) Anyway, it lost a star for little things here and there but it was overall a very good film and it was nice to be able to enjoy it again in a nice widescreen print. I got mine from Amazon.it because at the time, that was the only way I could get a Region 2 copy.

Being a long time horror fan, I was surprised that I had not seen this version of phantom, but I hadn't and so I chose to purchase it on blu ray.
I really enjoyed the film, as I found it to have the right balance of horror and unlike many other horror film, it actually had a story to it. I must admit that I was a little disappointed with the phantom make up, as it was Robert England playing him and it was the same special effects guy that did his freddy Krueger make up on some of the elm street films and so it just looked like they were using left over freddy make up most of the time.
Apart from that, the film was enjoyable enough and even featured the massively underrated 80's horror scream queen jill shoelen.
The blu ray was a little bit of a let down because it was very soft and looked more like a dvd, but being that I never saw this before, I cannot compare it to any previous release. All in all it was a really good movie with an acceptable blu ray transfer, it's not something I would rush out and purchase but, if the price went down to say £7 then it's worth a look on blu ray, as I feel it's not worth much more than that.
