Storyline

Belgrade, Yugoslavia, 1979. While Yugoslav president Tito is in Cuba settling international matters, a mysterious Phantom occupies the attention and hearts of Belgrade. Every night, he exhibits spectacular driving maneuvers using a stolen white Porsche car through the city streets. Through the radio the Phantom publicly challenges the police to try and catch him. More than 10.000 people are in the streets supporting their hero. The police are forced into a game where he sets the rules. The Phantom becomes a political threat. What started as a game turned into a political scandal and remained a myth that would never be forgot. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When several police car units and inspector Fangio radio-reported their position and movement of The Phantom, few Belgrade locations are called either with their modern, or informal names, considering the second highly uncommon in police service practice at the time. The ''Monument of Vuk Square'' (In Serbian ''Raskrsnica Vukov spomenik'') was called in the movie colloquially and informally ''At Vuk's'' (In Serbian ''Kod Vuka''). The ''Bridge of Branko'', as it was called in the movie (In Serbian ''Brankov most''), was actually named The ''Brotherhood-unity Bridge'' (In Serbian ''Most Bratstva-jedinstva''), which was its official name used by the police during communist rule.

Nice try, although bit predictable
9 October 2009 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I expected much more from this movie...Yet I was disappointed in many ways...Urban legend of "Beogradski phantom" (Belgrade phantom) is used, and since I was teenager in late 70's I am recalling exactly that times. First, IMHO, there are lot of miscast in this movie. Characters are played without enough passion. Leading role (Phantom himself) is played emotionless - without face expression, without stress or anger or joy. What will feel the driver when is chased by dozen of police cars? Will he remain silent, expressionless and dumb? I doubt so! Also, chief of police is played not good enough - like he is some fruit-seller on the market. All chase-scenes were shot in the dark, pretending we see Belgrade in 1979! But still we can see street signs, exchange-office sign from modern times! Also, Phantom wears bad copy, clearly visible, of "ADIDAS" sport-shoes, with 4 stripes ! That was such mistake! Real ADIDAS is with 3 stripes, and in late 70's there were easy to buy original Adidas shoes in every shoe-shop! That was big mistake. Well, I really like beginning of the movie, with scenes taken from real documentaries, but lately, everything went sloppy. I gave 2/10 just because I like scenes taken from documentaries.
