Editorial Reviews

At the height of the cold war, the world holds its breath when a Soviet submarine armed with nuclear missiles goes missing in the Pacific. On board the vessel, the battle-tested captain (Harris) and a rogue KGB agent (Duchovny) are waging a life-and-death game of cat and mouse. With enemy forces closing in and time running out, the captain fights to keep control with nuclear armageddon hanging in the balance. Starring four-time Academy Awardr nominee Ed Harris, Golden Glober winner David Duchovny (TV's The X-Files), and William Fichtner (Armageddon).

"There are only 2 reasons for a boat to go rogue. One is to defect and the other is to start a war and I don't think we're defecting." This movie is based on actual evens set during the Cold War between the US and the USSR. After returning home and excited about being on leave the A Russian sub captain (Harris) and crew are stunned when they are chosen to go on another mission right away. The mission is classified and the only one on the sub that knows the details is a KGB agent Duchovny). When certain details emerge the crew starts to rethink the orders they are given. I was looking forward to seeing this for really one reason. I am a huge Ed Harris fan. He did not disappoint in this movie. The movie itself is also really good and the best way to describe it is a mix of Hunt For Red Octber and Crimson Tide. The fact that the movie is true makes it even more interesting to watch. It is a little predictable but that does not take away from the enjoyment of the movie at all. If you are a fan of movies like Red October then this movie is for you. I recommend this. Overall, very tense and exciting. I give it a B+.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Watching June 27, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you're able to look past the fact that all of the Russians are played by Americans (running from Americans) who, with the exception of William Fichtner, never remotely attempt an accent, you'll find you're in for a real treat with Phantom. A cast of recognizable--iconic even--faces come together for this quiet, smart tale of intrigue. Ed Harris is as tremendous as ever but it's David Duchovny who turns in the most unexpected performance. A very enjoyable film packed with extras that are worth watching, especially in regards to the historical truths the movie is based upon. The metaphysical ending might confuse some but the visuals throughout the film lend to the 'haunted' aspect of the film. I'd say this is more 'U-571' than 'Hunt for Red October' but if you're a submarine fan, this is an admirable entry to the genre. The fact that it was filmed entirely on board an actual Soviet sub made it even more interesting. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars PHANTOM Is A Smart Cold War Thriller June 25, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
It used to be that Hollywood knew a thing or two about producing some outstanding, patriotic military thrillers. I'm not talking about the drum-beating variety; rather, I'm talking about stories that focused on characters with a commitment to whatever country they served, and these characters would then be allowed to carry out their mission at whatever the cost. That's the stuff audiences typically embrace - not these veiled anti-war, anti-American, anti-decency dramatic potboilers. If you'd told me twenty years ago that I'd have to watch a film about a Soviet submarine captain who does what's necessary to save all of humanity in order to have that thirst for solid military drama sated, then I would've told you to drop down and give me twenty.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

In the late 60's, a battle-tested Soviet submarine captain nearing the end of his career, Demi (played by the reliable Ed Harris) returns to base only to find out he's been assigned to command a relic: an old diesel sub is on the verge of being retired and sold to the Chinese for their new navy. His senior officer thinks it apropos that Demi - who first captained the sub - see it through on its last mission, and, a consummate professional, he agrees. However, once they're out to see, Demi finds his authority usurped a KGB officer, Bruni (David Duchovny), who's intent on using the ship to test a new naval weapon known only as `Phantom.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOMETIMES YOU MUST PICK A SIDE July 13, 2013
Format:DVD
***PLOT SPOILER REVIEW***

As a former submariner who rode these old vessels I found this film fascinating. One story was that the US sunk this ship. This movie presents a different version.

The story is simple. The KGB goes rogue with a submarine with the intent of launching a first strike at the US, making it look like China did it. The film creates characters and internal conflicts to make the story interesting.

Kudos to the film for getting the submarine terminology and capability correct. This aspect was more realistic than most sub films.

There are some problems with the basic scenario. First off in 1968, China had only one Golf style submarine operational. It did NOT have launch capabilities. They wouldn't develop that until 1970. The second problem is that nuclear bombs have signature. We could figure out the difference between a crude Chinese graphite reactor bomb and a slightly more sophisticated Russian bomb. So the premise of the film while interesting, doesn't seem plausible.

Another film goof was when they encountered the USS Skipjack. The Skipjack was stationed out of Norfolk and operated in that area in 1968. The submarine in the Pacific was the USS Swordfish, i.e. a Skipjack class sub, but not the Skipjack itself.

The actors did what they could with a dry script. Landlubbers may find this film a complete bore and rightly so. We already know they fail. Extras include a talk about the real incident on which the film was based.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
