Audience Reviews for The Phantom
I am a Phantom fan from day one, and when I heard of this film inspired by Lee Falk's comic strip of the same name, and directed by Paolo Barzman - I could not resist but to get it as soon as possible. It stars Ryan Carnes as Kit Walker, the 22nd Phantom... which is different! So much different that I wonder what were the screenwriters, father/son team Daniel Knauf and Charles Knauf, thinking writing this. They ruined the legend! Casting wasn't bad at all and most of the crew including Ryan Carnes as Kit Walker/Chris Moore - the 22nd Phantom, Cameron Goodman as Renny Davidson - Kit's girlfriend and paramedic, Jean Marchand as Abel Vandermaark - Kit's mentor and one of the Walkers' oldest allies although Kit becomes suspicious of his true intentions, Sandrine Holt as Guran - the Phantom's close friend and advisor, Ron Lea as Detective Sgt. Sean Davidson - Renny's father, Cas Anvar as Rhatib Singh - head of the Singh Brotherhood and Ivan Smith as Dr. Deepak Baboor - director of Bpaa Thap, did a good job. On the other hand, Isabella Rossellini as Dr. Bella Lithia was not what she used to be - a shining star! The movie was worst than any other made about this legendary comic, and the main elements of the story of the Phantom were missing, that I am not even sure that I could associate it with Phantom. Three hours of struggle to enjoy this US/Canadian co-production will stay with me forever - as a bitter taste in my mouth. No soul... nothing that used to captivate me while reading the stories. This Phantom looks more like a Power Ranger than the "Ghost who walks"! And I had enough of it.
