Xander Drax is searching for three skulls that can be combined to wield the power of the sun. I think?


Superhero Moment

Riding in on his horse, with his dog, to chase off the bad guys.


Billy Zane made a good Phantom, sad that the movie wasn’t a better vehicle for him.


Pretty accurate to the comics with a few added flourishes.

Theme Song


This movie didn’t have to be bad. I really enjoyed the premise and some of the stunts were quite well done. But then we went from the jungle, to New York, to an underwater pirate cave? And laser rings? It’s like it wanted to be made in the 20s, so they just kept seventy year old fight coordination and sound stages.
