Entertainment Reviews:

Premiere - 02/01/1995
"...Baldwin's interior struggle is the stuff of literature..." - Recommended
Sight and Sound - 11/01/1994
"...THE SHADOW displays considerable bravura....A pleasing period look..."
New York Times - 07/01/1994
"...Sleek, entertaining....Baldwin [is] a wily actor who brings along just the right mix of do-goodism and evil potential..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/01/1994
"...It has the benefit of a combination of gorgeous production design and eye-catching visual effects. If ever a film looked exactly the way you hoped and imagined it would, THE SHADOW is it..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/01/1994
"...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....Style and tone are everything with a movie like this..."

Product Description:

"Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men' The Shadow knows." Based on the long- running radio program, this atmospheric feature follows the exploits of Lamont Cranston, aka the Shadow, as he battles the last descendant of Ghengis Khan who has come to take over New York City through mass hypnosis. See other new releases, "Behind the Mask" (1937) and "The Shadow Strikes" (1937) for the first film adventures of the Shadow.

Plot Synopsis:

A moody and atmospheric crime film, inspired by a popular radio show that ran for over 25 years.
In another, better time, crime boss Lamont Cranston, using the name Ying Ko, ruled Tibet's underworld. Then someone slashed him with a strange and powerful weapon, changing Cranston forever, both physically and psychically. Now, he lurks in the shadows of Manhattan, battling gangsters -- including one particularly evil man who has followed him from Tibet.

Rating 4.5 The Shadow Movie Lover: from Pittsburgh,Pa. -- March, 29, 2008

Here is entertainment at a level when we would spend our quarters and dimes on saturday mornings at matinees all over the world to cheer for the good guy and hate the bad guy. Nostalgia is all through this period piece and makes you yearn for those days long gone buy. Alec Baldwin is an excellent choice for the hero's alter ego "The Shadow" To say I loved this movie is an understatement and you will love it too. Get your popcorn ready folks !!!
