Movie Info

New York hit man Eric O'Byrne (Matthew Modine) is sent to Miami to murder movie stunt coordinator Lance Huston (James Caan) in retaliation for an on-set accident that killed a powerful capo's nephew, who also was a drug smuggler working on a large deal with eccentric kingpin Draven (Cuba Gooding Jr.). Eric works his way into Lance's world by starting a relationship with Lance's daughter, Clarissa (Joey Lauren Adams), a sensitive pediatrician, and before long he becomes a stuntman working for Lance. But the godfather becomes anxious to have Lance killed, and Eric finds that when the time comes to pull the trigger, love and loyalty complicate the hit.

Interestingly blends the world of stunt people who create the illusion of danger and that of the Mob, where danger is a reality.

Audience Reviews for In the Shadows

Mathew Modine really destroys In the Shadows with some terrible acting but even with a better actor in the lead the script and plot are weak so not much better would have come of it.
