I think this movie is basically just a reason to perv on Billy Zane while he runs around in a tight spandex outfit. To expect anything else is foolish. The story line is ok, but at the very bottom of the ok scale. The acting I'll comment on that by asking a question... What acting? And the dialogue? Well the dialogue is on the sad say. So all in all the movie is embarrassing to say the least but t... read more

"Join the club. Many of us have killed him over the years. But he keeps coming back."

1996's The Phantom is another comic book adaptation which has never quite gotten a fair shake. It was produced for a rather extravagant $45 million, yet opened to poor reviews and apocalyptic box office, killing Paramount's plans for a franchise. Although the flick has performed respectably on the ... read more

This is a perfect matinee movie that you can relax after after a hard working day. Just shut the brain and have fun.Catherine Zeta-Jones is beautiful in a rather early movie in her career.
View all The Phantom reviews
Description: Based on Lee Falk's comic strip The Phantom, the film stars Billy Zane as a seemingly immortal crimefighter and his battle against all forms of evil. The film was loosely inspired by three of The Phantom stories, "The Singh Brotherhood", "The Sky Band", and "The Belt"; but adds supernatural elements and several new characters. The Phantom was released on June 7, 1996, and received mixed reviews from film critics. Despite financial disappointment in its theatrical release, the film has since enjoyed success on VHS and DVD. ... (more)

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1431 movies items)

" Based on the 1938 comic strip series, by Lee Falk, Billy Zane plays Kit Walker, also known as The Phantom, in this adaptation of the series. The bad guy, played by Treat Williams, seems like a stock bad guy, in a film that did very little at the box office, and got mixed reviews from critics. The main problem wit this movie, was the same as Tge Shadow, with few people knowing who The Phantom is, even few fewer, show up."

" Note: In 1996, they adapted the classic superhero on the big screen. The film was a financial failure in its theatrical release. Rumors of a sequel happening because of strong home video sales were talked about, nothing came out of it. "

" Catherine Zeta-Jones – The Phantom Right before she took her breakout role in Martin Campbell’s The Mask Of Zorro, Catherine Zeta-Jones would jump on-board another pulpy project, as she was cast in the role of Sala in The Phantom. Another comic book movie that was made before the genre took off, Zeta-Jones was the adversary (and eventual ally) of Billy Zane’s "ghost who walks." Interestingly enough, the obscurity of this role didn’t seem to stop her from being lin"
