It's an entertainment that deserved to have become the first of a series.

A pleasant, eye-pleasing movie.

The movie has all the coherence of a bad acid flashback.

What's on the screen is so tired by now that you've seen it before even if this is your introduction to the Shadow.

It has enough of the innocent exoticism and splendor of silent thrillers to suggest a continuity with the past missing from most other movies; all that's required is a capacity to sit back and dream.

Polished to a high surface gloss, but nothing lurks beneath; nothing at all.

Despite similarities as a vigilante creature of the night, however, the Shadow -- a character that enjoyed its greatest success in radio after being created in pulp novels -- lacks the visceral appeal of Batman and won't strike the same chord.

Baldwin's low-key performance lacks charisma, Lone alternates between lip-smacking villainy and camp humour, and Miller is chiefly a clothes-horse for a series of slinky '30s frocks.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

A triumph of special effects over story (and the effects are now totally dated).

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

Not a bad comic movie. I still think Baldwin would have made a great Batman.

It offers a diverting, nostalgic retreat to the innocent days when crime fighting was a pleasant, rich man's hobby.

It looks nice, but it rarely works.

It's a little wacky, but it packs a pretty entertaining punch.

This may have been the last cinematic stab at capturing the essence of a faded literary phenomenon

The Shadow is good; it's just not worthy of the talent assembled.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A noble failure that could not capture its pulpish essence.

| Original Score: 2/5

Larry Carroll

A misfire meant to be a franchise. The film is based on an old radio show, and the concept is interesting enough, but this movie just drags.

| Original Score: C-
