      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A cast of solid actors do what they can to elevate the material, but Phantom's script is too clunky and devoid of tension to bear comparison to its thematic predecessors.

      Daniel L They couldn't at least TRY to do Russian accents? Staring Ed Harriinsky and David Duchovnisky. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/26/23 Full Review Dave B This is an under-rated little gem that's not far off from Hunt for Red October. Solid performances from the cast and some real tension (and casualties) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Michael S There are many great films about submarines: Das Boot, Crimson Tide, The Hunt for Red October. This... is not one of them. Nice cast. An unorthodox ending (to say the least). But this low budget drama never rises to the heights of those great films. Merely watchable. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/10/23 Full Review Leo M I expected little but found the film captivating. The low budget is perhaps evident, but we have forgotten the essential principal that a movie does not have to cost a fortune to be good. Ed Harris offers a convincing performance - we cannot be surprised, pf course. The movie is entertaining and had me stuck to the screen from beginning to end. Such movies are not made for everyone. I did enjoy it a lot. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/20/22 Full Review Audience Member Excellent! Good story and great acting by Harris and Duchovny, with basis in fact from an incident occurring during the Cold War Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member It was "okay". Half the time I had no idea what they were talking about. It had suspenseful moments but the boredom was predominant. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Leonard Maltin leonardmaltin.com Phantom features some wonky visual effects, but one either buys into a film of this kind or not. Mar 4, 2013 Full Review Laremy Legel Film.com Ed Harris and company can't lift this one off the seafloor, and "Phantom" fades away into the murky mist. Rated: C- Mar 3, 2013 Full Review Walter V. Addiego San Francisco Chronicle A game effort by a decent cast highlights the old-fashioned submarine thriller "Phantom," but heavy-handed dialogue, flurries of melodrama and a silly ending make the whole enterprise sink like a stone. Rated: 1/4 Mar 1, 2013 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com A misfire of nearly offensive proportions. Aug 7, 2019 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures When limited by budget, a good independent film turns in on itself and spotlights the actors, and that's where the meat is in this movie. Rated: 3/5 Jul 2, 2013 Full Review Forrest Hartman Reno Gazette-Journal Done well, submarine movies are intense affairs that keep viewers glued to the screen as characters play breathtaking games of cat-and-mouse. Done poorly, they turn out like Phantom. Rated: 2/4 Jun 25, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews
