this movie was absolutely amazing. i feel bad for the phantom because all he wanted was someone to hear his music-his one true passion. no one was able to because no one looked beyond his infection. christine was judgmental like all the others. she was afraid of him because of his unfortunate disease even if all he did was adore her. she chose raul because he was normal and excepted by the world. i dont think the phantom was evil at all. he did what he did because christine acted like all the others and broke his heart. he loved her and she didnt see him as a real human being only as a monster. all he wanted was for someone to show they cared and loved him too but she couldnt do that. he had enough of the world shunning him so he lashed out. this is why i HATE raul and dislike christine. they think he is evil but they are the evil ones.
