#Retro Review: The #Shadow (1994)

   Oliver Harper, being his usual thorough self, goes in deep on 1994’s “The Shadow”. This film is a favorite of mine along with “The Phantom”. Yes, apparently I enjoy critically crapped on pulp hero films. I won’t apologize for that. I recently went on a rant on geeks who feel entitled to shit on anything and everything when it doesn’t conform to their own vision as to what a property should be. This is just a fun film and is a great popcorn flick that should simply be enjoyed and not picked apart. The visuals are stunning, the story is simple yet interesting, and the acting is very retro-dramatic.

   If you have not watched this one, give it a shot. Don’t expect a life changing experience. Just sit back and expect to have some fun.

   Until next time…

Live long, Prosper, and may the Force be with you.
