Mixed feelings on this sequel to the Phantom of the Opera. It's 10 years after the Phantom fled Paris and he's gone from being basically the lord of a Baroque palace of an opera-house to...running a carnie-show on Coney Island?! This is the story in which everybody's dirty laundry comes out, and it feels a lot like fan-fiction. Some continuity problems with the original, since they *completely* rewrote the nature of the relationship between the Phantom & Christine. There are maybe three stand-out good songs here, compared to the almost-everything of the original. That said, despite the weirdness, there was some good acting and it *did* get some feels out of me by the end, and I felt compelled to watch it again. Don't think I'd go see it on stage (original Phantom all the way!), but it's worth a watch on DVD.
