The Phantom

Synopsis: Four hundred years ago, a young boy witnessed his father's death during an attack on their ship by the bloodthirsty Sengh Brotherhood. He was washed ashore on Bengalla Island where he swore to devote his life to bring down piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice. He became The Phantom, a masked avenger whose role was passed down for father to son, leading people to believe in an immortal figure called "The Ghost Who Walks". The 21st successor to the role of Bengalla's resident superhero must travel to New York City to prevent a power-hungry businessman from obtaining three magic skulls that would give him the secret to ultimate power.

It all began a very long time ago,

when a merchant ship was set upon

by pirates of the Sengh Brotherhood.

A small boy watched helplessly as

his father was killed by the pirate leader,

the Evil Kabai Sengh.

Hejumped overboard

and was washed ashore

on a mysteriousjungle island

called Bengalla.

It seemed like a case of

"out of the frying pan and into the ire",

but the Touganda tribesmen

meant the boy no harm.

They scooped him up

and carried him to their village.

And that night, in an ancient

ceremony of ire and drums,

the tribal shaman presented the boy

wlth a ring of great significance.

The boy understood that he was

destined to avenge his father's death

by fighting piracy, greed and cruelty

in all their forms.

When he grew to be a man,

he became the Phantom.

- Damn worthless map!

- You drive, I'll navigate.

- The map is all wrong.

- The map is good, Quill.

Remember its source.

It can't be wrong.

Then why does it show a bridge back

there? We never crossed any bridge.

- What's he saying, Morgan?

- 'urn around. "

- We'd better turn around.

- Not a chance!

Maybe this little quitter

needs a lesson in positive thinking.

Quill, now I get it.

Turn the map around.

- It's upside-down, you big moron!

- You big moron!

If the map is upside-down,

there ought to be a bridge up ahead.

All I see is more jungle.

Oh, sh*t!

Hey, Quill! No sudden stops.

What's the big idea?

Hey, take a look at that.

- What do you think?.

- I don't know.

It looks like it'll hold,

but then again...

Breen? Styles?

- I'd hate to bet my life on it, Quill.

- Same here.


We'll go over on foot.

All except one.

He'll stay back

and drive the truck across.

Yeah, but which one?

- I knew that bridge was safe.

- Come on, kid.

Almost there.

The brake, use the brake!

OK, back in the truck.

Well, it's on foot from here.

OK, Zak, take a look. Which way?.

- What's his problem now?.

- He says we can't go on.

- These woods are protected.

- Oh, yeah? Protected by who?

By a ghost.

'he Ghost Who Walks".

I wouldn't worry about that.

- He's not taking us beyond this point.

- Shoot him.

No! We may need him.

To drive the truck back

across the bridge!

Tie him up and leave him here.

We can find our own way.

This is it! We're there!

Everybody look around.

Well, you look like an important fella.

Hey, Quill! Up here!

- Got it!

- Mr Drax is going to be very happy.

- What's so important about that thing?

- I don't know.

I don't like to ask Drax questions.

His answers scare me.


- What the hell happened?

- He's dead.

The damn thing came alive

and choked him to death.

- It's not possible!

- Tell Styles.

- Let's get out of here.

- What about all the other stuff?

- There's a lot of valuable junk in here.

- Take it all. Nobody's going to miss it.

Now what?

- Drums.

- I know that! What does it mean?

It don't mean nothing.

But hurry up, just the same.

Devil, somebody needs us.

This place is really

giving me the creeps.

What the hell is that?

Shoot him!

- Oh, sh*t!

- Run!


Watch him, Devil.

If he moves, eat him.

- What about Breen?

- Tough luck. Forget him!

- Who was that guy?.

- Somebody I already killed.

- What?

- You heard me! I killed him years ago.

Guess what? He's back!

At least he's behind us.

Did I get him?

I don't see him.

You must have hit him.

So long, pal!

Keep the truck!

- Ghost Who Walks!

- Oh, yeah.

It's OK, now.

Hold on. It'll be all right.

Put them in the guardhouse.

- What have you got here? Poachers?

- Looters, Captain.

Captain, you've got a problem.
