Love Never Dies Review

 My husband loves Phantom of the Opera, and a few months ago we were offered the opportunity to review the sequel, Love Never Dies. We were excited to watch it, especially when we read this synopsis. The year is 1907 and ten years have passed since the Phantom's disappearance from the Paris Opera House. He has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak-shows of Coney Island. In this new electrically-charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love - Christine Daae. Now one of the world's finest sopranos, Christine is struggling in an ailing marriage to Raoul. So, it is with excitement she accepts an invitation to travel to New York and perform at a renowned opera house. In a final bid to win back her love, the Phantom lures Christine, her husband, and their young son Gustave from Manhattan, to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island, not knowing what is in store for them...

Love Never Dies did not disappoint.  It started a little slow, but by the third act, I was hooked. The way Love Never Dies was filmed seemed a bit off to me at times, but if you are there for the story, not the (not so hidden) microphones, it is fine! If you like musicals, my hubby and I think you will enjoy it! We will be watching it again!

Disclosure: I received a free copy of Love Never Dies to review. No further compensation was received. All opinions are honest and are those of the Shelly's Bits and Pieces family!
