Cast & Credits
Action-packed, spy thrillerPhantom is a fun watch. It is riddled with plotholes. As soon as we walked out of the theatre, we started poking and could identify a lot of ridiculous conceits. In fact, the whole concept of keeping 5 people in a giant hotel in order to figure out which of them might be a spy is in itself rather silly, so you know what you’re getting into if you read the synopsis and go see it… still, while you’re watching, the movie keeps you entertained. The production and cinematography were good. The actresses in particular shone. The action scenes packed a punch, and allowed for many bad ass moments.
Is it a great movie? No. Is it still fun and worth the watch? Yes, if you like over-the-top action featuring cool heroines!
Most of its plot revolves around a closed settingThe movie seems to have a large scale resistance movement theme but actually most of its plot revolves around the interrogation of five suspects in a remote torture area at a seaside cliff, only until the ending the story expands into something bigger, but still the closing sequence is quite unsatisfying because at the end someone else becomes the alternate villain which is kinda weird for this kind of movie. Despite that, the cinematography and soundtrack is excellent enough to give it a somewhat artistic finish.
