A one of a kind movie!
25 November 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

While "Phantom Boy" lacks a bit when it comes to the quality of the animation (it doesn't come close to the quality of most full-length cartoons today), it is well worth seeing for two main reasons--it's originality and it's a cartoon that will appeal to older kids as well as adults. As for the youngest kids in the audience, this one might be a bit too adult for them...take them to see a Disney flick instead.

Leo is a very sick boy and spends most of the movie in the hospital. You assume he's suffering from cancer and is getting treatment...though they never say exactly what is possibly going to kill him. During the course of the treatment, however, Leo has somehow developed a weird capacity to leave his body...much like astral projection. When a cop is severely injured on the job, Leo discovers that the cop somehow can remember and deal with Leo and his special gift...and with it they work to stop a maniac from proclaiming himself the King of New York City!

The plot simply would be too complicated for little kids and there are baddies who are trying to kill Leo and others....so just keep them home. But the film is very well made and fascinating throughout...and it's now available from Netflix on DVD.
