The Shadow Reviews

July 16, 2010
A pleasant, eye-pleasing movie.

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

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.

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.

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

This thing is all packaging and no content, or, dare I say it, all shadow and no substance.

Most of the time, you won't be chuckling, so much as contemplating the emptiness that lies in the brains of all too many production executives.

Overproduced but underwhelming monolith.
January 1, 2000
The setup promises something more invigorating than it delivers.

The ups and downs of this movie are similar to those of the Batman films, and most audiences may be as forgiving of them here as there.

If you respond to film noir, if you like dark streets and women with scarlet lips and big fast cars with running boards, the look of this movie will work some kind of magic.
