Patrick Wilson [Raoul]  Post [1] »


Discussion on the actor Patrick Wilson who starred as Raoul in the movie is here. I liked Patrick's portrayal of Raoul, I thought he did a good job as him with his singing and all. He gave Raoul a young, innocent feeling of a young man in love with a woman that he almost lost. What do you guys think of him? Good, bad, no comments at all?

;)

I do like Patrick's portryal of Raoul, he put so much emotion into it which, for me made Raoul likeable. I mean I am a die hard Erik/Christine fan but I don't dislike Raoul for it in the movie because you almost felt sorry for him when he was tied up on the portculis :P Plus, he is a very good singer :D

I think Patrick's voice was a bit too weak in places for my liking to be honest, and sometimes Raoul did come across as a bit of a fop. But some of his acting was very sweet.

^Stole the words right out of my mouth. ;)

His voice seems very weak, compared to Gerard's or Emmy's. But the point of no return had a few measures in it that he performed well. My biggest problem being that 'pretty-boy' factor seemed a little over done.

For someone who is very accustomed to the broadway version, I have to agree that his voice was a little weak especially in comparison to Emmys. They also did overdo the pretty boy routine way to much it kinda annoyed me by the end.

I at first didn't like his long and well groomed hair, he looked too much of a girl. Maybe also because I like guys with shorter hair than that.

My favourite Patrick scene though is the dungeon scene where he tries to rescue Christine. He looks so sexy with his hair all wet and the upset look on his face.

I strongly (strongly!) dislike the character of Raoul...but Patrick did a beautiful job portraying him. I admire and respect him as an actor, and I'll make a point to go see his other films.

I must disagree with my fellow phans Cecile and Carlotta (but good-naturedly, of course!:D) Though it pains me to say this, I think he had one of the strongest voices in the cast (I say it pains me because Raoul just shouldn't have a sexy voice! He's not supposed to be sexy!). He and Christine (Emmy Rossum) are superb singers, as is Gerry...but Gerry is not classically trained, and at some points you can sort of tell. But he still did a fantastic job...Gerry was, in my opinion, the strongest portrayal, acting wise.

Now...back to Patrick Wilson... (sorry, I can get sort of carried away while talking about Gerry...)

Patrick Wilson did very well as the "old childhood friend," and he was convincing as a "hero" figure. Though I hold a major grudge against Raoul himself, I think Patrick is a wonderful actor.

I thought Patrick Wilson did a great job as Raoul. He had a very nice, comforting voice, and was a pretty good actor. (Raoul generally doesn't get to do much real "acting," so that's saying something.) I'm used to Raoul being a baritone, so the first time I heard his voice, I was thrown off a bit (since Pat's a tenor), but I thought his singing was excellent. I still don't think he should have won the swordfight, though. Then again, it gives Gerik even more reason to want to kill him. :D

I think Patricks voice is strong. I also think he brought across the "prince charming" element awesomely. To tell the truth right now I am as in love with him as I am with Gerry. :D
