Rating: 4/5 -- Our grim avengers of the 21st century could use some reminding that it's okay to smile once in awhile… and that 'fun' should be more than just an afterthought when stories of this ilk are told.

...It uses the visual materials of 1930s pulp fiction, adds a touch of film noir, and paints everything in a palette of reds, browns, golden yellows, creams, greens, blacks -- and purples, of course....Smashingly entertaining...

Expect this ghost of bad movies past to walk quickly to the back bins of Blockbuster, where it should be filed under a helpful heading, monotonous and juvenile.
Rolling Stone

While it hardly stands to vanquish the celluloid incarnations of Superman and Batman, this version of an older cartoon crusader's exploits does have a pleasingly astute sense of its place in the great scheme of things pulp.

Product Description:

A lavish action-adventure of swashbuckling romance and mystery based on the popular comic-strip superhero created by Lee Falk. Kit Walker (Billy Zane), a.k.a. the Phantom, must rescue a rich heiress and (Kristy Swanson) prevent a vicious brotherhood of pirates and a ruthless business mogul from bringing an ancient prophecy of power to pass.

Plot Synopsis:

Set in the 1930s, this film adaptation of Lee Falk's comic strip brings to life the purple-suited, jungle-dwelling Phantom. What the Phantom lacks in superpowers and gadgetry, he makes up for in courage and heroism.
Here, The Phantom is pitted against villainous Xander Drax, a expensive-suited criminal mastermind, who is desperately trying to acquire three skulls, each of which is located in a different part of the world. When united, the skulls give their owner magical powers. The Phantom, along with plucky displaced New Yorker Diana Palmer, set out to stop Drax -- leading to hair-raising, death-defying adventures for the brave pair.
But can they thwart the clever Drax before it's too late'
