Trivia

Diana's idle-rich acquaintance Jimmy Wells (Jon Tenney) appeared in the earliest installments of the Phantom comic, when the Phantom was still a shadowy figure whose identity and motives had not been revealed. Lee Falk planned to reveal that Jimmy Wells was the Phantom's alter ego, and included several hints to that effect, before settling on the now-familiar back-story of the Phantom as a globe-trotting crime fighter with a centuries-long heritage, and quietly writing Jimmy Wells out of the comic.

Goofs

After the Phantom escapes from the truck hanging from the rope bridge over a gorge, it falls into the gorge and explodes. The explosion occurs just before the truck hits the water. See more »

Really, it's good fun !
18 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

Reminiscent of "The Rocketeer." I wasn't going to see this at first, the comic strip did nothing for me. But the newspaper reviews were quite positive. Billy Zane is enjoyable in the role, and he worked his butt off to get those muscles. That's no fake padding in his suit!! This is a chance to see a pre-"Mask of Zorro" Catherine Zeta-Jones as the bad girl, altho her switch to the good side late in the film is unconvincing. Kristy Swanson is also good fun. I even liked James Remar as Quill - he mostly does TV series now. Beautiful filming locations and a snappy, crisp story line. It's a fun movie - try it & see!
