Critics reviews

Even if the TV spin-off is slicker than its comic-strip partner — De Palma’s hackwork is always more stylish than most other people’s — the clunkiness in The Phantom has more charm. Mission: Impossible belongs to Cruise (who doubles as coproducer) more than De Palma, and The Phantom belongs mainly to a bunch of banks, so why should we pretend that either brainless entertainment has or needs any sort of artistic coherence?
