Phantom (2013) Movie Reviews
User reviews on Phantom (2013)
I was really excited to see this film because the cast is so great and it seemed to have an interesting and compelling story. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations and I left the theater disappointed and kind of annoyed. In my opinion, the film was too dry and formal and lacked imagination and passion. I found the film to be quite bland and very confusing and it saddens me to say these things because I think this film had such a huge potential to be great. The film was watchable only because of a stellar cast of character players, overall I suggest renting this film and seeing it at the comfort of your home.
I did not really like this film and I do not think it is worth seeing in the theaters. I thought the film will be great because it has such an amazing cast and the story is very interesting, however the way the story was told pretty much killed the suspense and the movie with it. The cast did a great job and it was a pleasure to watch them but it was also sad because their performances were drowned in the sea of dreadfulness. I found the film to be quite claustrophobic and confining, I also thought the dialogue was way too formal and the film lacked imagination. I also though the film was quite confusing and I found myself lost more than once throughout the film and that was quite irritating. Overall, I think the film is worth watching for the performances but I suggest renting it instead of seeing it on the big screen.
