A sleek and breezy action film in the vein of "Indiana Jones"...

Our grim avengers of the 21st century could use some reminding that it's okay to smile once in awhile… and that 'fun' should be more than just an afterthought when stories of this ilk are told.

While it hardly stands to vanquish the celluloid incarnations of Superman and Batman, this version of an older cartoon crusader's exploits does have a pleasingly astute sense of its place in the great scheme of things pulp.

Billy Zane proves he should be Superman, and Catherine Zeta-Jones breaks out before Zorro. Very campy, but well worth it.

I just love the character of the Phantom. With his purple costume, his Skull cave and his animal sidekicks, he's totally ridiculous yet the cool thing is that he seems to be in on the joke.

The Phantom" doesn't measure up to the "Indiana Jones" films, but it is a good effort.

A throwback to the days when superheroes were basically cheerful, gun-toting guys in tights.

Despite the pleasant feel and fun performance from Zane there's something missing from this superhero adventure.

The Phantom is one of the best-looking movies in any genre Ihave ever seen.
