This is a long 2 part story. It appears to be made for Canadian TV. No sex, nudity, or bad language. Like American movies, the bad guys are black, except in this one they speak French Canadian. The main bad guys hang out in Switzerland and boast a mish-mash of indistinguishable international accents, including one female (Belladonna Lithia) whose haircut makes me think she was once part of the Swedish Bikini team of the 1980's.

Ryan Carnes plays Chris Mooore, who lives with people he thinks are his parents. Like Luke Skywalker his past is kept secret and then one day he comes home, finds his legal guardians killed by the bad guys and vows revenge. Like Spiderman, he also likes the redhead next door. And there is a corporate meeting which reminded me of the one in Kill Bill.

Chris Moore has lost his memory and doesn't know he is the Phantom, although he does like to jump around the roofs of buildings. Once he is arrested, his DNA goes out on the Interpol network and he is discovered by the Good Guys and the Bad Guys, the Singh. Eventually Chris assumes the role of the Phantom and uses his new high tech bullet proof suit. It turns out his dad died from cancer (must have been those purple dyed asbestos fibers in the old suit). The bad guys have a weapon called "Flicker" or Flickr for you Yahoos or Flicka for you cowboys. This device uses digital TV to turn people into Manchurian Candidates, who will keep the war machine going and the arms dealers rich.

The movie doesn't have long drawn out action scenes. It is long on dialogue and building characters. If this is the first in a series. i.e. an introduction of characters, they did a good job. However, if this is it, you might wait until you have 3 hours to kill on a movie that is more carrot on a stick than action.

I am a second generation Phantom fan. I even enjoyed the earlier version of The Phantom [DVD] [1997], this one is a really good modernisation of a classic (actually the first) superhero. I have to say though I really hate the new costume, but the cast and storyline really make up for that.

The Kit Walker was the only survivor of a Pirate attack, he is washed up on shore of Bengal, and taken in and trained by the local Bandar tribe. He becomes the original Phantom then his children follow him in this quest creating the illusion of an immortal, a "Ghost who Walks".

This story follows the 22nd Phantom. Christopher Moor is an athletic daredevil. 24 Years old and has a scholarship in one of the more prestigious law universities in the country. That changes when he is told his is really Kit Walker and the last living heir to the Phantom legacy.

The reason I like this modernisation is because they use smart and effective use of modern technology. I said earlier that I hated the new costume. This is not completely true. I like the fact that is body armour but I think they should have kept the original mask. I would have also liked the have had more action but I understand why they on a limited budget could not go over the top. One thing that did do well is that fact that despite Kits natural abilities and martial arts training he has to me retrained (in survival and thinking fast in combat situations) into the Phantom. The only down side is I think this was made as a pilot to a series and was not picked up, which is very disappointing for a fan like me. That is the only reason I took away one star. I wish there was a sequel, but I will take what I can get. Well worth a watch.

This is an okay movie I did enjoy it but the Billy Zane (1996 version) was more to the comic. The costume from the original was a far superior one to the upbeat version Ryan Carnes played the part 10/10. Would be better if they made a sequel though.

Admittedly, the concept of this up-dated "take" on The Phantom, the old-time syndicated comic mystic rider (a more appropriate designation than "superhero" for what that comic used to represent), is better than its realisation. Of course, such a junior Phantom would not be the inscrutable travelling sage and adventurer which that figure was in the "funny pages" (to which he lent some air of "gravitas") in the press of the 1940s and 1950s, as I recall from reading "The Phantom" in the newspapers back then as a child and teen. This 2009 film, rather wisely perhaps, lays out new ground in Phantom lore, in imagining some newly conceived, youthful adventures in a more modern setting for that comics hero. One should be able to tell that this is so from the subtitle which the DVD's packaging presents. The full title thereon (here placing a word entirely in capital letters, for emphasis) is "The Phantom: REIMAGINED and Reloaded". And reconceived, indeed, is the Phantom whom Ryan Carnes depicts!

As for the 1943 moving pictures serial, which can cumulate nicely into a lengthy movie, the portrayal of the Phantom therein, much closer to his image in the comics, differs almost entirely from the 2009 film. I especially miss Devil, the Phantom's trusty, clever, and valiant canine companion (a wonderfully well trained hound, beautiful German shepherd that he was), playing a significant and endearing role way back then in the 1943 production. Kit Walker, the Phantom in the 2009 movie, whose adventures and exploits are more prevailingly urban, has no animal helpers like Devil (a grey mountain wolf in the comics) or the Phantom's steed, Hero.
