Directed by
Simon Wincer

Simon Wincer's retro fantasy adventure, based on Lee Falk's classic comic strip, stars Billy Zane as Kit Walker, otherwise known as the Phantom. The crimefighter, who unlike most superheroes relies solely on his human strength and ingenuity, is committed to battling all forms of injustice, cruelty and piracy. His immediate concern is stopping criminal genius Xander Drax from getting his hands on three skulls that, when used together, can confer ultimate power. When Kit's ex-girlfriend Diana Palmer is sent to investigate claims of piracy against Xander, she is captured by female pirates led by Sala. Can the Phantom win the race to unite the skulls? And can he rescue Diana without revealing his secret identity to her? Edited for content.
