I have not seen the play POTO, but last year saw the movie starring Gerard Butler and fell in love with all the characters as well as Mr. Butler. From thatspringboard I have enjoyed so many other films of GB (including Mrs. Brown and 2 days ago saw Beowulf & Grendel) in Beverly Hills. I enjoy GB so much not only to look at him, but the subjects he chooses have led me to become interested at a deeper level. I hate most of the movies that are being made now, but I eagerly look forward to Gerard Butler. I feel he is the best actor and hope that his material will be easier to see as time so on.

I have played the DVD many times since purchase and each time I have enjoyed it more. I agree with anothers comment Michael Crawford's voice is good but Gerard Butler is such a strong character and most compelling as the Phantom. In the end I was hoping he would get Christine even though I knew the ending. I was on his side. I think Butler gave a great performance. I hope we see more of him in these type of roles. My husband is an Opera fan and he enjoyed it as well and rated Gerard Butler better than Michael Crawford. Michael just did not come across as being the Phantom.

this movie is awesome i must have watched it over and over again about a hundred times and i still watch it and listen to the sound track everyday. u should make another film with garard bulter he is the most handsome man in film and sexy why cant he come and play in musicals and plays im sure that the woman would love to see him on stage. the crew that was chosen for the parts of the phantom was great, and the phantom of the opera was the best movie of 2004 in my book and that u for making it.

Gerard Butler was wonderful in Phantom of the Opera. My husband and myself enjoyed the movie immensely. We give it 4 stars! Those who have not watched it should treat themselves to a nice quiet evening of romance & beautiful music. Thumbs up Gerard, I hope to see more of you.

I did not see it last year, did not pay attention to it, coz on my mind was still The Phantom I saw on stage. But when I saw the movie, I found it great, the characters especially Gerard gave an excellent portrayal of the Phantom, his masculine voice is perfect for the character,though he is not known to be a singer but he sings alright. I compare the movie soundtract to that of Michael's Crawford's. I dont discredit Michael's voice but I like Gerard's voice better.It does not matter your opinion to me, it's me to decide. So now I have the movie and the soundtract and I always play it, as for my Michael's Crawford soundtract, sorry Michael, have to set you aside. I should have watched this last year. No wonder, my friends been talking about this Gerard Butler.
