The Phantom May Be the Most Eager-to-Please Superhero Movie to Ever Wear Spandex All images Paramount Pictures In the 1990s between The Rocketeer The Shadow and The Phantom standalone retrostyled comics films had a moment Story Of A Game Vol 2 Showtime The Official History Of Basketball Only one however featured Billy Zane galloping through the streets of New York City on horseback while wearing a skintight purple unitard It’s hard to argue with anything so cheerfully corny The Phantom came out in 1996 making it a late entry in the decade’s retrosuperhero movie trend It suffered from being too similar to the movies that’d come just before and from coming out in a year where the big action movies were Independence Day Twister The Rock and Mission Impossible In comparison to the cuttingedge special effects on display in those films The Phantom looks downright oldfashioned Its plot is oldfashioned too keeping faith with its source materiala comic strip that’s been appearing in newspapers since 1936 Kristy Swanson as Diana The comic had some bigname fans who circled the adaptation including the legendary Sergio Leone Gremlins director Joe Dante and Batman & Robin’s Joe Schumacher The gig eventually went to Australian director Simon Wincer who’d hit big in 1993 with whalemeetsboy adventure Free Willy He also made the 1990 Tom Selleck Aussie Western Quigley Down Under which is perhaps a more relevant credit In The Phantom the year is 1939three years after Indiana Jones outran a boulder in Raiders of the Lost Ark The Phantom owes a lot to the Indiana Jones series in certain ways right from the opening act which begins as a trio of bad guys and a native kid they’ve pressed into service as a guide cross a rickety swinging bridge to steal a priceless supernaturallycharged silver skull The subsequent action sceneslots of derringdo on airplane wings horseback acrobatics handtohand combat shipboard rescues and clever escapesalso tip their hat to Dr Jones Just hanging out doing some shirtless research But despite the timeline The Phantom is completely given over to fantasy No Nazis here Just a guy who inherited his secret identity from his father and like hangs out in a treasurefilled cave waiting to fight any villains who might stumble into Bengalla the nebulouslylocated but vaguely Southeast Asian island that he’s sworn to protect He’s buddies with the indigenous people who regard him as a folk hero he’s also pals with the head of the British “jungle patrol” that occupies the island It’s a weird conflict of interest that the movie never addresses Instead of worrying about cultural inappropriateness or uh plot logic The Phantom instead keeps its focus on lighthearted adventure As Kit “The Phantom” Walker Billy Zanein his cheesy beefcake prime here just a year before he turned scoundrel for Titanicis not exactly the most fascinating hero around The fact that he’s a superhero without any real superpowers unless a pet wolf counts makes him marginally more appealing though the stakes are never hemightdie high Kit in his civilian attire Unlike Batman or Superman the Phantom’s not really wellknown outside the funny pages No doubt comic creator Lee Falk spent a lot of time crafting the character who existed for 60 years’ worth of adventures before the film The Phantom movie spends the length of its prologue explaining its protagonist’s multigenerational backstory but there’s not much depth beyond that A movie made today would contain at the very least a flashback to Kit ascending to Phantomhood when his father is killed Story Of A Game Vol 2 Showtime The Official History Of Basketball Maybe we’d learn who his mother was and how she played a part in his life Instead we get just his father in ghost form Patrick McGoohan popping up in random places to tuttut him and give him guidance There’s something to be said for a superhero movie that isn’t an origin storybut a little more context would’ve gone a long way toward anchoring the story Shallow though it may be though The Phantom is breezily entertainingand you can tell that most everyone involved knew they weren’t reinventing the wheel It also has certain flashes of flair that are pretty obviously why it’s become something of a cult favorite The three main supporting characters in particular do a lot to bulk up the film’s paperthin story about secret pirate brotherhoods and magical skulls As mustachioed antagonist Xander Draxthe character spells it out at one point making sure we notice it begins and ends with an X for reasons only he knowsTreat Williams is clearly having the best time Who wouldn’t if they got to play an eyeballstabbing artifactlooting wannabeworld dominating dapperyetevil businessman Kristy Swanson so often cast as an airhead gets to play Diana the nononsense love interest who a figures out that Kit is the Phantom which nobody else ever manages to do and b takes a raincheck on romance by leaving him behind at the end even though “nobody refuses the Phantom ” She also punches a bunch of dudes and gets to wear pants throughout the entire movie Even better though is a preMask of Zorro Catherine ZetaJones who slithers in to play the only character who actually has an arc the glamorous Sala who commands an awesomely cool squad of lady air pirates She realizes halfway through the movie that being a mean girl sucksand that she should really be helping the good guys instead The Phantom is not without flaws It’s got that deliberately retro thing going on in its 1930s by way of the 1990s setting But it’s also got that 20yearold movie problem while it actually treats its female characters rather well certain other aspectsparticularly in how it frames the indigenous culture that the Phantom dwells alongsidehaven’t aged so well The people of Bengalla supposedly chose Kit’s ancestor to be their avenger and are therefore the reason he’s got a superhero mantle at all but aside from Kit’s Alfred Pennyworth equivalent and the little kid he saves at the beginning the islanders are basically treated as set dressing It’s not good and it’s also a side effect of The Phantom’s frantic urge to compact anything resembling exposition in favor of swinging from ropes swordfighting flinging pirates into sharkinfested waters etc The Phantom isn’t here to illuminate anything about the human condition or even the condition of its characters It just wants to please and have fun Logic be damned This is a movie that sends its jungledwelling leotardwearing hero to New York City makes careful mention of the fact that he attended college there which suggests he must have some degree of smarts and then has him pay an incredulous cab driver with a pocket full of jewels because that’s the only thing of value he bothered to bring with him It’s ridiculous and it pulls you out of the movie to ask yourself “Wait what” It’d be very easy to ding The Phantom for the many WTF moments like this one butlike Billy Zane’s campy performanceit’s too goofy and earnest to hate it Look if you want darkness gloom existential pain and cynicism there are a zillion other superhero movies you could watch instead Or you could have a blast with the movie that decided to bring you this Deflecting an evil laser as you do
