"Phantom" movie quotes help solve the mystery of a Soviet covert submarine mission that just might be trying to start World War III. The war thriller was written and directed by Todd Robinson, who previously saw success with the 1996 film "White Squall." "Phantom" opened in theaters on March 1, 2013.
In "Phantom," submarine captain Demi (Ed Harris) returns home to his wife and daughter after a lengthy assignment only to learn that he and his team have been dispatched on another mission immediately. This is especially hard on Demi as the stress isn't good for his secret health issues causing his seizures, which alter his perception of reality, to get worse. Nevertheless he accepts the order and reports to his submarine where he's introduced to so-called technicians who will be joining his boat to supposedly test prototype equipment.
On the ship, Demi and ally Alex (William Fichtner) soon discover that these men are not technicians, rather a rogue KGB group hell bent on taking control of the ship's nuclear weapon. Led by Bruni (David Duchovny), the group takes control of the ship and tries to start a war. Though Demi and Alex don't know the full extent of Bruni's true mission, they do know enough to try to stop Bruni from starting something catastrophic."Phantom" adds a mystery war thriller to an already busy movie season with other titles such as "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," "Side Effects," "Identity Thief," "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters," "Stand Up Guys," "Warm Bodies," "Bullet to the Head," "Movie 43," "Django Unchained," "Killing Them Softly," "Hitchcock," "Skyfall," "Lincoln," "Flight," "Playing for Keeps," and "Silver Linings Playbook."
