Critic Reviews for Shadow Glories

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

A powerful and distinctive commentary on the addictiveness of violence.

September 27, 2012 | Rating: 4/5

A confusing mess where the characters' actions make little sense and the finale is particularly noxious.

October 12, 2001

Better than the vast majority of martial arts films and represents a strong debut by both Sandler and Swampscott director Ziad Hamzeh.

September 28, 2001

An insipid, terminally stupid kickboxing movie that even Lloyd Dobler himself would have trouble recommending.

March 19, 2003 | Rating: 16/100

All in all, a watchable, worthwhile example of its genre, the picture offers a timely anti-violence message.

December 8, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5

It ends up a broken, fractured version of what it might have been, rather than the intelligent, poetic drama it aspires to be.
