Critic Reviews for Shade
Card sharks and grifters look like the stuff of an engrossing movie in Shade, but, in the end, under-realized direction and characters deliver less than a full deck.
A failure on every conceivable level -- from its trite, pedestrian dialogue to its static, torturous pacing.
Loaded with dizzying cons and betrayals, it pays off with a satisfying and unpredictable finish.
Through some mystery of connection and financing that involves producer Merv Griffin, many worthy players are degraded by Nieman's amateur stylings.
A dramatic thriller with a large cast playing the hell out of some very juicy roles.
Audience Reviews for Shade
Another forgotten Stallone film, This time it's about card griffting and even though it can be hard to keep up with who's on who's side even in the end we're still not sure, The card games were pretty good and there's about 3 twists that kept the film fresh, We expect twists in films like this so they weren't a big suprise but it's pretty good but nothing new.
When gambling your life, leave nothing to chance.
A swift, smart and wickedly entertaing crime thriller. Tense, clever and really cool. Teriffically funny and suspensful. Great twist and turns that never let up. Lot's of fun and enjoyment. A con you cant help but get caught up in. The cast is brilliant. Stuart Townsend, Thandie Newton and Gabriel Bryne are sizzeling. The three actors have great chemistry. Sylvester Stallone is teriffic. One of his best performances in years. It has the flash and cash to keep up.
