It's actually quite compelling.

I could say it's laughable, embarrassing, woefully inept, and absolutely Ed Woodsian in style and presentation, but why bother?

Audience Reviews for The Phantom Planet

This movie is stupid and nonsensical, the guy lands on some planet and shrinks to the tiny size of the rest of the people there, and they put him through some crazy trials and then need his help against their enemy, and other sci-fi type stuff happens, but you keep wondering what the point is and when the story is going to get anywhere, but it doesn't. This is a horrible movie.

Anyone ever heard of Plan 9 From Outer Space? The most confused film ever created? Ed Wood's masterpiece? Often cited as the worst film of all time? Of course you have.

And, well, if you enjoyed that, then this one surely is for you. Phantom Planet is a prime example of a screenwriter and a director who just made up what they were doing as they went along. Just plain silly. 08/100
