I really liked this film and thought billy zane was meant for the role.. My faint memories of the film that is.

YEA !!!!

Kristy Swanson, Treat Williams, and Catherine Zeta Jones. The movie was pure cheese, but it was awesome.

It was a bit odd when the film turned into a pirate movie...........

I remember enjoying the Phantom when it came out so long ago. I may need to rent it again to see what it was all about :)

Billy Zane... good lord.

...and Treat Williams...

This must've been the deal breaker for Kristy Swanson too... after that the only other thing I ever saw her in was "Dude Where's My Car."

I remember seeing this movie. I remember enjoying it more than "The Shadow." But I also remember it still sucking enough to never want to watch it again.

Maybe, just maybe, I'll give it another go...

I remember I got an awesome Phantom ring from Subway as a promo for the movie. I definitely liked it when I saw it, I wonder how it will hold up....

Shadow and Phantom weren't high art films, but were campy fun. I'd love to have 1/6th version of both characters from the flicks.

Great thread :rock :rock

I love this movie! I saw this on it's release in 1996 and my DVD copy has been played many many times.

While the movie won't win any awards, for someone who grew up reading The Phantom comics it was a very good fun rendition. There were alot a subtle tributes to the comics in this movie and Billy Zanes role as Kit Walker and Kristy Swanson as Diana Palmer were both excellent.

Trivia - :)

Billy Zane pumped iron for over a year to fill The Phantom's costume. A Batman-like costume with fake muscles was reportedly made, but by the time filming started, Zane was so beefed up that he did not need it.

One of The Phantom's trademarks in the comic strip, his striped "underpants", was tried on the movie costume, but reportedly looked too silly to use in the final film.

I like this movie so much that I ordered a custom 1/6 Billy Zane as The Phantom from Spenser(prophouse 2000) quite a while ago. He still remains one of my favourite figures.

Pics for those who have not seen this figure before.

Oh man, that is enjoyable. Australia's best selling comic, and some original stories and artwork were done by Australian artisans. Gotta love the Phantom. :rock
