The Phantom Reviews

July 7, 2010
As the Phantom, Billy Zane, buff to the max, has a likable insouciance, but there's not much he can do to flesh out this relic.

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.

Expect this ghost of bad movies past to walk quickly to the back bins of Blockbuster, where it should be filed under a helpful heading, monotonous and juvenile.

It's nice to see some things done the old way.

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

This is the kind of movie that offers modest entertainment while you're in the theater, but is forgotten by the time you get home.

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

If Treat Williams were the Phantom and Billy Zane the capitalist villain would any significant nuances be lost?

A lightweight action adventure, derivative in its look and approach. It's strictly for kids, but it's possible to appreciate the picture for what it is.

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

The pleasures are familiar, but not the least bit inspired.
