No way this is an Independent Film!!!! (by a-a-albano)
Not a fan of war movies or cold war submarine movies, BUT went to see this because Ed Harris and Lance Henriksen were in it. To my complete surprise it drew me in and would not let me go. They obviously used an authentic submarine and the claustrophobic, this sub is going to just implode any minute feel, had me on edge. The cast included David Duchovny, William Fichtner, Sean Patrick Flannery, Johnathan Schaech, etc.. Did it have ' "action" - yes, but the meat of the movie was the interaction of the characters, the terror of the time - nuclear annihilation, personal guilt, love, <more>
friendship, bravery, and hatred and fear that breeds radical actions. You will regret not seeing this movie!
"Phantom" is a good solid movie and well worth watching!!! (by RogerCampbell)
When I saw the trailer for "Phantom" and read the details of what it is about I immediately got the feeling that it was going to be a really good movie and that I had to go see it. Ed Harris brings depth to any character he plays, and his portrayal as Demi, the captain of a Soviet submarine with a few skeletons in his closet is no exception. Given one last command at a time when the Cold War tensions between the super-powers are at an all time high, he must battle more than the Americans, he must battle the enemy within his own ranks. David Duchovny is brilliant as Bruni, the <more>
radical KGB agent on board who is bent on taking command of the submarine and firing a nuclear missile aimed at the United States. The twist to this is that the submarine is also armed with a secret weapon called the "Phantom" that will give off a signature signal that will lead the Americans to believe that the missile was launched from a Red Chinese submarine instead of a Soviet one. Bruni and other members of the KBG believe this will trigger an all out nuclear war between China and the United States and allow the Soviet Union to sit back and survive the holocaust unscathed. Tensions run high as Captain Demi and other loyal crew members work to diffuse the missiles warhead and retake control of the sub from the KGB agents. "Phantom" is loosely based on the true events involving the Soviet submarine K-129 in 1968.As I sat back and enjoyed this movie I must admit that at first I found myself thinking of David Duchovny's character as being Fox Mulder. I think there are a few "X-Files" episodes that involved submarines, specifically the 17th episode of the second season titled "End Game" which led me to feel that way. However, as the movie went along and Duchovny's character Bruni developed I got over that feeling.... This is a very good solid movie and I highly recommend seeing it.
Great submarine movie if you have studied sub warfare during the cold war (by coolfatdog)
This movie takes some sensitive subject matter, dresses it up a bit so that it won't make the Russians mad, and lets the characters make the essential points for the understanding of the components of this mission. This isn't a pretty picture with flashing lights - instead, it is filmed inside an old Russian sub. The cramped spaces, the original equipment, and the difficulty of movement by the crew are as real as can be.If you're thinking about watching this, you MAY want to read a summary of the K-129 disappearance in the Pacific in 1968. If you want to skip this and just watch, <more>
fine. The storyline covers a very dangerous time in the late sixties. There is proof, or anecdotal proof, of everything in the movie that may seem frightening to the viewer. This isn't just some script - it is a carefully-worded narrative that lets the view in on some pretty scary stuff. The ending takes an unusual turn - I love it when the director actually thinks up a new type of ending to a sub movie. My compliments.For all of us who can't get enough of sub books and movies, this one was a 10. I'll bet the rentals on this one will rise quickly. I watched it four times in two weeks. Thoroughly enjoyed it each time.
Phantom is a drama that draws you into the reality of military life in the tight quarters of a submarine. A dramatically charged thriller, with submarine close-quarter shoot-outs and fistfights. It was especially interesting reviews were critical of the filmmakers' choice to not use Russian diction or accents, but because the ships' crew were only Russian and there was no need to differentiate the Russians from any other sect, it works well and allows the viewer the advantage of clarity of dialogue. Once the movie is underway, I found the lack of accent was a plus because it gave the <more>
film a more universal feel; it shows this human drama could be of any ethnicity. Yes, the story line is of a few rogue Russians wanting to do harm to the United States, but in the progression of the story one realizes this could be any country's agenda. The cast is quite great and each of the actors' characters are definitely believable. Harris, Duchovny, Fichtner, and Schaech portrayals are spot-on. Each of them draw you into their character's psyche and propel you deep within the motivations of action. Fichtner and Schaech perform as true professionals; really believable and quite riveting in their actions and sometimes non-actions. Schaech always brings his best to the screen, making his character shine; proving himself once again to be a great character actor and, as we know, also able to carry a lead role because of his great diversity and good looks. Kudos to the cast and crew and especially, for me, the casting director. Great choices all the way around! A drama thriller you should not miss!
a top-notched cold-war era submarine warfare film (by rightwingisevil)
this is a great film if compared to those clichéd and formulaic over-the-top sci-fi movies full of phony computer generated cgi effects. this film has signed up a lot of good actors to perform a suspenseful submarine tactical war story. i was amazed to see ed harris did another great performance again. how could he remember so complicated dialog in so many films one after another and still did each one like he only did just one film annually. great actors must have very high i.q. and unusual memory ability like pianists, violinists and those great singers; only these kind of people could <more>
memorize so many and so much. by watching their performances only reminding me how ordinary and how averagely common i am. people like us whose only ability is to criticize and nothing else. this film has also reminded me to search out 'crimson tide' and some other wwii submarine movies and re-watch them with regenerated interest and enthusiasm. thanks to all of the people who produced this nostalgic film.
Inspired by actual events in 1968In 1968, a Russian diesel submarine goes out for one last mission and then it will be given to the Chinese. Captain Demi Ed Harris believes Bruni David Duchovny , a KGB operative, has plans to take over the ship and start a nuclear war. Bruni will use Phantom to accomplish his mission. How to stop him?I may be dating myself, but I couldn't help thinking of Richard Widmark during this movie. This was his kind of movie and Ed Harris does an Oscar Worthy job filling in for our departed 2008 friend. Kudos. The language was all in English, not English with <more>
broken Russian accents. That was a good move as nothing was lost in translation by doing this. The acting by all was excellent. There was good suspense and tension with the music helping. This was thoroughly enjoyable and the last scenes were heartfelt and very, very clever. Keep a box of Kleenex handy as you may need it. Did I mention that the last scenes were very clever?There is a statement at the end that says in 1968 a Russian submarine went missing and all is still classified by both the Russian and American governments. 9/10 Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: Yes, not much though.
First off, I am not a fan of Independent movies and find most boring or to artsy. I heard about Phantom for the first time when I watched a late night TV talk show. My interest was peaked so I went to see it an the local theater that shows this Independent movies. From the opening scene, I was hooked. My only issue was that unless you had seen other movies of this type, with the cast speaking English right from the beginning, you did not know that this was supposed to be Russian. But if you listened you could hear that they were talking about Russian locations, but the people that went with <more>
me had to ask me about 15 minutes into it if this was supposed to be Russian Navy. This movie hooks you and draws you into the life aboard a WW2 Era sub. Having actually been on this old sub as it sat in mothballs, I can tell you that there is no room for camera gear and how they filmed the inside with crew boggles me. Duchovny and Harris were spectacular in this movie and made the movie believable. The story line was very interesting and I was sad to see the movie end, but being based on a true story really peaked my interest and now I need more information. Please go see this movie, support this filmmaker, I am not associated with any of the movie or players, but for a Non Independent film watcher to love an Independent movie is really saying something.
Thrilling and claustrophobic submarine film reminiscent of days of great war movies!! (by lennonforever)
Go see this film - you will love it! It boasts a fantastic story - fascinating characters and an oh so quiet -but action-packed scene chewing! Ed Harris is one of the finest actors like, EVER- the second officer is William Fichtner, whom I didn't know, but you guys probably do. And of course David Duchovnny whom I adore,though he didn't convince me AT FIRST as believable his character - he plays a bad guy, a rogue KGB agent. But as the movie progressed, so did his character.Duchovny will always be "Fox Mulder" to me. Ed Harris elevates ANYTHING he does to a 10 for me, so for <more>
he and Fichtner's portrayal 10/10 all the way! If you love war movies which I have from the time I was a little girl , if you love boat or submarine movies, which I do if you are terrified by the thought of nuclear annihilation which I have always been since my elementary school days of "Duck and Cover" and that giant awful and most destruction "mushroom cloud", which I have always , if you want to feel a knot of a tension ball in your gut, if you want to experience the claustrophobic , experience of a submariner GO SEE THIS FILM! Not a moment of it's short run time is wasted. Oh if you are late to the film by 5 minutes - you will miss our beloved Lance Hendriksen- so don't be late! Boy , is he ever looking old! This movie ain't" glasnost" look it up kids - and poses THEE most terrifying existential "what if" scenario. It draws you in immediately. Well done.
Submarine films are few and far between - which is a shame, because there are few settings which breed tension in the way that a steel coffin submerged 200m below the sea's surface can. 'Phantom' isn't groundbreaking, but if you're after tension, heroism, drama and bravery, few current new releases deliver in the way that this movie does. There are a few real tearjerker moments - and at the end of the day, the movie does what it says on the box. Submarine. Conflict. Awesome. Sure, it's not going to fetch many stars from the art-house crowd - but if you want a simple, <more>
tense actioner; that doesn't ask you to suspend belief too much - you could do much, much worse.
