adventure is big, and ideal for the big screen! You'll see the
Phantom in the jungle, in the city, and in the jungle again.
Mostly outside filming. The stuntwork is incredible!
Everybody in this movie gives fantastic performances. Billy Zane
is a tough, but humorous hero...very convincing. Kristy Swanson
is great as the snippy little adventuress and the Phantom's love
interest. Catherine Zeta-Jones as the bad girl, later good girl
Sala is at the top of her form. Treat Williams is the
but in a funny way, villain Xander Drax. He's also a
no-holds-barred type of bad guy. His evil is only limited by his
imagination. James Remar is the dependably creepy thug, ruthless
and not too bright. And Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa is the pirate you
see later in the film who is an enemy of everyone. Very harsh
villain. Cary can play bad guys like this to perfection.
Special effects are superb, but not overused like in some superhero
films; they're tastefully done and serve the story.
about this movie is perfect! If you are truly interested in
superhero movies, you've got to see "The Phantom"!
THIS is my favorite shot of the whole, incredible film. It captures the Phantom's strength and mystery. And from the kid clutching onto his back, we know he's the good guy. If the people who were promoting this movie were wise, they would've incorporated this Phantom moment into the posters and other merchandising. How cool THIS would've looked on the video box!
Just truly great Phantom shots! The people in charge of things promoting this film show NONE of these on the back of the box or in any of the advertising, and to me they would attract the most interest from people curious in the film.
This is probably my favorite funny Phantom moment. The comissioner comes into his office with no one else there at one moment. The next moment, he sees the Phantom sitting at his desk eating a roll. It freaks out the comissioner, but Phantom does a double take at HIM and acts like "What?". The best thing about Billy Zane as the Phantom is that he has a personality. I won't name names, because this is not a put-down site, but there are a lot of popular live-action superhero actors who have very rigid and unpersonable personas. Mr. Zane is just flat-out awesome as a hero. I wish he'd play more in films.
