Movie Info

Brothers Samuel and Beckett Emerson are barely scraping by. Their father, Warren, continues to gamble and drink away any money they bring home. With all the havoc that is constantly going on in their lives, the family members each find solace in his own way, through Shakespeare, comic books and impossible love affairs. Beckett seizes the opportunity to make some easy money by counterfeiting in hopes of repaying his father's debts. When Beckett's plan goes awry, the family must decide what's most important or pay the ultimate price. (C) Arc Entertainment

Critic Reviews for Phantom Halo

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

Messy and confused, the film is a mishmash of tropes from Shakespeare, heist movies, family melodrama, and romance novels hastily thrown together.

June 19, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

None of it is convincing in the least, although the actors do as much as they can. "Phantom Halo" ends up feeling like a mash-up of two many other mediocre films.

June 19, 2015 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

A dark, satisfying work that can be forgiven for the moments it succumbs to Hollywood convention.

June 19, 2015 | Full Review…

This film keeps reaching for cleverness but comes up with a fistful of clichés.

June 18, 2015 | Full Review…

A genre mishmash cobbled together from the refuse of disparate visual and narrative modes.

June 17, 2015 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…

All of the disparate ideas and visual conceits never adds up to much in terms of emotional payoff.
