Cast & Crew
"Phantom" has a pulpy B-movie intensity and economy to match its cast of quality character actors.
A modest thriller propelled by a strong cast and straightforward storytelling.
Much of what's contained in Phantom is at best speculative and at worst completely made-up. But, regardless of the accuracy, it makes for compelling viewing.
As far as such potboilers go, Phantom is literate, tense and, thankfully, modest.
