Audience Reviews for The Shadow Strikes
Another boring mystery about some villain called the Shadow, who doesn't even exist. Who cares? This movie is boring.
5.5/10. Interesting curio and early entry into the low budget "The Shadow" series. Not too bad. The cinematography and editing could have been better, and there isn't much of a score. It is entertaining for the most part.
So, The Shadow isn't really in this film. Lamont Cranston goes undercover as some other guy, and then gets really talky. At barely over an hour, this movie is still forty-five minutes too long. It's in desperate need of a score and better actors, and maybe a judicious pruning of its scenes where guys stand around doing nothing.
