It's a failed attempt to revive a former pulp hero who has been passe for years.

The grandiose presence of Alec Baldwin manages to give cohesion to this little gem. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 1, 2014
Despite handsome production values and a crackerjack supporting cast, "The Shadow" remains a temperamental trinket that lacks the temerity to truly explore, as its titular hero would say, what evil truly lurks in the hearts of men.
June 5, 2013
Very underrated and incredibly entertaining...
July 16, 2010
It's an entertainment that deserved to have become the first of a series.
July 16, 2010
A pleasant, eye-pleasing movie.
July 6, 2010
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.
April 25, 2007
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.
March 10, 2006
A triumph of special effects over story (and the effects are now totally dated).

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

chaotic and dull

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