The Cold War has cast an ominous chill over the entire globe, and when a Soviet submarine targets the U.S. Navy's Pacific fleet for nuclear attack, it appears that the final battle has begun. But Captain Dmitri Zubov has a choice - one that could pull the world back from the brink of annihilation. Meanwhile, it begins to seem as if other forces are at work on Captain Zubov's submarine. Now, in the depths of the South Pacific, Captain Zubov will fight to reconcile his past in order to ensure that there will be a future. Not just for him, but for every man, woman, and child on the planet..

While underneath the vessel, the submarine Captain orders the vessel to go to 5 meters below surface. This would have caused the submarine to immediately impact the vessel due to her underwater draft(7-10 meters on average). See more »
My crew has just returned from 76 days at sea. The Americans are massing naval assets in the Pacific. There must be a dozen boats better rested.
Squadron Command is insisting on the most experienced captain and crew available.
I'm being retired, remember? You should know that. Your signature is all over the transfer. Even if I wasn't, my boat will be in dry dock for months.
You won't be sailing your boat. You'll be sailing the B-67.

Ed Harris and William Fichtner caught in a stale submarine movie ...
I suppose "Phantom" might be passable entertainment for those submarine film completests. Other than reliable acting from Ed Harris and William Fichtner, there is little of interest here for a general audience. Especially missing is the tension that a claustrophobic film like this demands. There is virtually no character development other than Ed Harris and William Fichtner. This means that everyone else becomes a "so what". It is very easy to become detached from this type of story when sailors we know nothing about are crawling all over the submarine doing things that are not explained. To me "Phantom" seems like a missed opportunity to make a good movie, and I'll let it go at that. - MERK
