THE PHANTOM (Theatrical Release USA 1996)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.7|5.0 Starsìì

The Phantom—not what you would expect from a super hero movie—gives itself a poor rating from the get-go. Poor acting and amateurish script kill all possibilities for this film to fly high.

Storyline

The Phantom (Billy Zane) becomes involved in the recovery of the Touganda Skulls.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. Don’t waste time on The Phantom. The comic strip far exceeds this movie in on-going entertainment value. If one is looking for an excellent super hero movie, try Batman Begins.
