What the film most damagingly lacks though is a sense of mystery and danger.

If you've been seduced by Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage version of The Phantom of the Opera, you'll fall in love with the gorgeous, splendidly cast film.

Phantom, still running on Broadway after sixteen years, is a rapturous spectacle. And the movie, directed full throttle by Joel Schumacher, goes the show one better.
