Critic Reviews for The Shadow Play

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (4)

  • There's more to the art of the thriller than exciting cutting and dizzying camerawork, as evidenced in the misguided police actioner The Shadow Play.

    February 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [A] wildly overblown, overcomplicated drama that dissipates tension because it is always doubling back on itself and not achieving much impact with each of its narrative shifts.

    February 12, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The Shadow Play is not a movie that you kick back and watch on Netflix at the end of a long day; it's a film that requires involvement and thought on the part of the viewer.

    November 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A chaotic plot stumbles its way towards a feeble denouement.

    February 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Despite its tendency to fall into incomprehensibility and monotony, this Chinese state-approved schlockfest is a wildly inane, earnestly baffling thrill ride.
