Critic Reviews for Phantom of the Theatre

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

A spooky and stylish thriller that sustains interest even after it veers from the flamboyantly fantastical to the relatively realistic.

Eventually, even the story sinks under the weight of its forced grandiosity and literal-mindedness.

Like one of its unfortunate acrobats, the movie spins out of control.

"Phantom" glories in its own artifice. The movie is carried by sweeping widescreen images, dynamic camera movements, impressive special effects and a color scheme that contrasts icy blues against fiery reds.

May 5, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

While unlikely to challenge the spooky classics of the past, it's a very respectable genre offering from China, even more so given the situation with the anti-horror censors

Raymond Yip Wai Man's Phantom of the Theatre has all the easy-to-digest charm of a Disneyland attraction. Also most of the built-in limitations.
