The Shadow | 1994 | PG-13 | - 2.6.2

Alec Baldwin stars as the mysterious Shadow, and Penelope Ann Miller as his lovely sidekick, Margo Lane.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - One big kiss, and a few scenes of a woman in a negligee or slinky dress, some exposing her back and a little cleavage. Two women are seen in bed with a man, obviously nude, but we see only bare arms and legs. Some sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - There are many scenes of violence, some with blood. Several men are shot to death. Several men are stabbed: one in the chest, one in the stomach, and one in the forehead with a shard of glass. An animated dagger stabs a man in the leg, and then the dagger handle bites his hand. Several punch-ups ending in bloodied faces, and several men are presumably dead. A man is thrown through the windshield of a car. A man shoots himself in the head -- off screen. A car blows up with a man inside. Two men are shot with arrows. Two men fall off a balcony and land on a large cement eagle, another jumps from the Empire State Building, and he bounces off ledges on the way down, and yet another falls off a balcony and we hear him hit the pavement. A man peels off his face -- in a dream. A man almost drowns in a big room filled with water. A bloody battle field is shown, with sword play.

LANGUAGE 2 - A handful of mild profanities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Delusions of grandeur, savagery, mysticism, telepathy.

MESSAGE - Forgive yourself for the past. Redemption is possible, even for the worst crime.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
