The Phantom is a superhero based on a South Pacific Island circa 1930. His mission is to fight pirateering, greed, and crime. I found this film (metaphorically) represented todays modern world - quite acurately. A modern world which is marred with white-collar corporate crime; featuring politicians, manager-representatives, and everday street-charlatans, out to swindle his fellow (hu)man. The Phantom also commutes to NYC to follow a crime.
The film has many great action-sequences filmed in the South Pacific, where the Phantom resides. The scenery is breath-taking, and The Phantom truly is a super-action comic book hero. I enjoyed this film. The Phantom has a great moralistic side. He is indeed human afterall. He is a friend of nature, and all it's animal friends. He is also out to fight for justice, and protect honest hard-working folks. In other words, this film still resonates with a minority today. Folk's who honour collective values, and not primarily - the self. This film would appeal towards this branch of people, and probably most comic book fans in general.
