The Shadow is the most stylish superhero movie to date, easily beating Batman, although the Spiderman movie is giving the shadow a run for it's money! This movie has that old fashioned cheesy-but-in-a-good-way vibe, set in 1920's New York City, Lamont Cranston AKA Yenkow the Butcher AKA The Shadow is brilliantly yet suttly underplayed by Alec Baldwin, he must have had a blast making this movie! Penelope Ann Miller is great as always, this was the first time i saw her, she was also great in Carlito's Way. John Lone (Ricky Tan from Rush Hour 2) is a great villan, playing the last decendent of Gengis Khan attempting to take over New York, holding the city to ransom with a stolen atomic bomb! Great DTS sound on this movie if you have the electronics to hear it!!! Check it out!!!
