WHAT’S DOIN, BASTARDS?
I am a sucker for a submarine thriller almost as much as a heist film but we just don’t get them much. That’s about to change though and Ed Harris, returning once again to the ocean depths, is here to make sure he kicks your ass really well while you’re watching it. You toss Lance Henriksen into the mix, no matter how small the role, and you have a cool joint on your hands. The fact that this co-stars David Duchovny doesn’t discourage me in the slightest. Dig this trailer:
The skinny on the flick:
Ed Harris plays the captain of a Cold War Soviet missile submarine who has secretly been suffering from seizures that alter his perception of reality. Forced to leave his wife and daughter, he is rushed into a classified mission, where he is haunted by his past and challenged by a rogue KGB group (led by David Duchovny) bent on seizing control of the ship’s nuclear missile. With the fate of humanity in his hands, Harris discovers he has been chosen for this mission in the belief he would fail. Phantom is a suspense submarine thriller about extraordinary men facing impossible choices.
LOCKED AND LOADED,
