Superheroes, contrary to popular opinion, don’t always need a cape. All they need is the ability to control minds and become invisible.
Lamont Cranston (Alec Baldwin) has a secret identity. He is the Shadow, a superhero who must stop his nemesis, Shiwan Khan (John Lone) from building an atomic bomb that will destroy the world.
As superhero movies go, it’s certainly different. It’s not the Marvel or DC comic superhero movies that audiences have become enamored of over the last decade. But the differences are good. Maybe it’s time that the Shadow deserves as much attention as Batman, Superman or the X-Men.
I recommend it.
