This was so bad that I actually enjoyed it. Julian Sands horribly overacting, ridiculous VFX, a dialogue that makes you laugh in places where you’re not supposed to laugh –but at least you’re laughing and not getting bored. Actually at times you get a glimpse of what this movie could have been: a burlesque reinterpretation of the Leroux’s original, a grotesque operatic comedy. Which it is not. But I’m still laughing.
Mmm, chewy... Can't think of anything good to say. Sorry, Argento. Even the hammy acting and the ratmobile are too ridiculous to be anything else than tedious. The worst part is that Argento's atmospheric visual style is nowhere to be seen.
