Phantom.. Good Solid Soviet Era Film.
I just wish they would have spent more time getting the actors to actually seem more Russian. However, I understand why they didn't go with that route because of possible things lost in translation. However, I feel the lack of any accent, at least for me, was something that made it more confusing than necessary, because going in, you're not sure who's Russian and who's American. Then you find out that they're all Russian, which took you a while seeing as how they don't speak in Russian nor have any trace of accents aside from their American one. Beside that small malady, this movie with its solid cast was a gem if you don't mind sitting through the logistics. Amazing end to the film, too. Leaves some things shrouded in mystery, as they should be.
