"Phantoms" has a great concept. The force mankind is dealing with is mysterious and deadly. However, the movie has many problems. One of the problems with the movie is that the characters aren't interesting because we know very little about them. We find out a little about Ben Affleck's, however, making him the only character I found any bit interesting. The scary parts are way too predictable and so is the story itself. We see the big threatening thing that killed all the town at the end of the movie, and we find it ruins the only thing that kept the movie going. This movie should have made more time to know more about the characters and the thing they were fighting than trying lame ways to scare people. In conclusion, good idea;bad movie.
