Anchor Bay UK has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray director Todd Robinson's thriller Phantom (2013), starring Ed Harris, David Duchovny, and William Fichtner. The release will be available for purchase online and in shops across the United Kingdom on August 19th.
At the height of the cold war, the world holds its breath when a Soviet submarine armed with nuclear missiles goes missing in the Pacific. On board the vessel, the battle-tested captain (Harris) and a rogue KGB agent (Duchovny) are waging a life-and-death game of cat and mouse. With enemy forces closing in and time running out, the captain fights to keep control with nuclear armageddon hanging in the balance.
Bought the blu-ray after watching the dvd rental. Once one gets over the fact that none of the cast attempt a Russian accent, as one would expect given the setting, it's actually a pretty good sub flick (despite the dismal 25% R/T score). The sets and action sequences belie its miniscule budget, and certainly, the casting of the capable three main leads imbues this b-grade actioner a palpable sense of gravitas and street cred.
