Product Description

Amazon.ca

This plain-vanilla version of the old Lee Falk comic strip stars Billy Zane as a 1930s incarnation of the Phantom, an African-based, masked hero whose forefathers have all donned the costume at one time or another. Sworn to crush evil, the Phantom leaves his jungle lair to venture to New York, where he takes on a charming but criminal mastermind (Treat Williams). There's no oomph to this film at all. The very capable director Simon Wincer (Phar Lap) seems to be working with a leaden production and an inferior talent pool behind the camera. The talent in front of the camera do their best, but it isn't enough. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars The Phantom Crusader Oct. 9 2006
By R. Kirk
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nifty live-action comicbook May 13 2004
By Danno
Format:DVD
This is the type of DVD that works best if you watch it on a rainy Saturday morning. I missed "Phantom" when it was released theatrically many years ago and discovered it on DVD. This is an old-fashioned comicstrip/movie serial sort of film that's perhaps too straightforward for most tastes. There's no irony or winking references here, which sets it apart from most other superhero movies. I liked it, but didn't love it, and I can fully understand if it's not to everyone's taste. I suggest you rent it, watch it on a gloomy weekend and see if it doesn't make you feel like a kid again if only for a few minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long-time PHANTOM fans couldn't be happier April 13 2003
Format:DVD
To really appreciate the 1996 PHANTOM, it helps to know who he is: whereas other costumed heroes depend heavily on at least one super power and are forever in your face about it, the PHANTOM is the only one who relies on good genes, a white Palomino, a pet wolf, a loyal tribe of pygmy poison people (the Bandar), and a personal fortune to get him past bad times and bad people. He also has this stone fox of a girlfriend (Diana Palmer), a skull throne [THE Skull Throne], and the coolest home on the face of the earth, the Skull Cave.
Many "super"-type heroes have elements of the PHANTOM's lifestyle: Batman, for instance, ripped off the Skull Cave with his Batcave and his wealth; but unlike the PHANTOM Batman isn't saving the world 24 hours a day. Batman clocks in at sundown, works all night, then sleeps it off the next day. Presumably, too, crime in Gotham City isn't always afoot; Batman, as billionaire socialite alter ego Bruce Wayne, mixes it up with the nation's wealthiest 1% whenever possible. And who built the Batplane, the Bat-o-cycle, the Batmobile, the Batboat, etc? If Batman's got his own pygmies building this stuff for him, let's see 'em! And what kind of "hero" ADOPTS a teenage boy (Robin) and votes Republican?
The PHANTOM, on the other hand, would drop everything to come to the aid of some pygmy whose ox ate too many dung beetles. When the Bandar have a bake sale, the PHANTOM bakes a pie. Diana been away for a month and hasn't had a chance to write? The PHANTOM broods for about two seconds and puts on a hat, sunglasses, and a checkered trenchcoat, leaves town for the States, and breaks heads until he finds her and knows she's OK. Is that love or what?

4.0 out of 5 stars 1996 Phantom on DVD May 29 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is great for what it is supposed to be: a comic-bookish sort of film. It has the flavor of the old 1960s comic books (I don't mean Phantom comic books specifically but just 1960s comic books in general). It's colorful, it's entertaining, it has an interesting plot, the Phantom's island hideout is wonderfully depicted, etc. There are a few plot weaknesses; Catherine Zeta-Jones's character lacks convincing motivation for her final actions in the film. But as a comic-book movie, this is fine light entertainment that will make a 50+ person feel transported back to a time of innocent child entertainment.

The style of the film is neither deadly serious (a la pretentious modern comic books like Watchmen) nor tongue-in-cheek "camp" (like the 60s Batman TV show); it is a pleasant middle of the road that offers a basically straight plot but never forgets that comic books are also supposed to be fun.

A great movie? No. A good old-time adventure film? Yes. Watch it on a rainy Saturday or Sunday afternoon, looking for sheer escape, and you won't be disappointed.

Not terribly memorable superhero action flick done much better in other formats. Billy Zane presented an unsympathetic hero and the villian seemed more of a boob than a threat. Read more

Billy Zane plays the Phantom perfectly. He's not a dark, grim superhero like Batman or a neurotic superhero like Spider-Man. Read more
