"As insane as it may sound, I think the Phantom is more likable when he's an insane murderer. He's not a nice person, but you do get a sense of how he got to be so messed up and he does do the right thing in the end. You can't condone his behavior, but you can still feel sorry for him. The Phantom of Love Never Dies has all of the negative qualities of his original incarnation and none of the sympathetic ones. Since his situation has changed for the better, he's wealthy, successful, and has several people supporting him, he comes off as less of a tragic monster lashing out at a world that screwed him over, and more like a selfish bully hiding behind weak excuses."
