Editorial Reviews

Filmed in Bucharest, Romania, Steven Seagal (Black Dawn, Under Siege), Garrick Hagon (Second in Command, Spy Game), Skye Bennett (Shadows of the Past) and Eva Pope (Splinter, TV's "Bad Girls," "Coronation Street") star in this hard-hitting, action-packed film about an Intelligence Operative who discovers that no one is what they seem in the shadowy world of espionage. On a trip to Bucharest five years after the death of his wife and son, former covert agent Jack Foster's (Seagal) 8-year-old daughter is kidnapped. He searches Bucharest for her while the Romanian police, the American Embassy, and Russian agents all pursue him, believing he has a microchip containing the formula for a virus that could kill millions if it falls into the wrong hands.

Lord Steven releases lots of movies, so much so that its like having Christmas three or four times a year. Now, my past few little "Christmases" have been disappointing. So, I wasn't holding my breath for a masterpiece when I picked up "Shadow Man"(its lame cover not easing my mind in the least). Boy, was I pleasantly surprised.

The plot is ridiculously convoluted, but here is a vague outline of what happens: Lord Steven plays a billionaire businessman who was formerly a CIA agent. He's also a widower raising a young daughter. His father-in-law is still in the CIA and meets with the Lord and his daughter in Romania for a family trip. Pops secrectly slips the Lord some sort of high-tech nano-virus without Seagal's knowledge then gets promptly blown up by a car bomb. At the same time, the Lord's little girl gets kidnapped. The rest of the movie is doublecross upon doublecross and no one really has any motive save for Seagal, who is out to get his daughter back. Throw in some Russian gangsters(one of which who curiously looks like a mixture of Christopher Lloyd and Max Headroom)out to get the virus, shady government agents also looking for said virus, a femme fatale taxi driver, some excessive violence, and you get a quality Seagal feature.

Firstly, let me say that for the first time since 'Belly Of The Beast' that one of Seagal's movies has a director that actually seemed to give a crap. Michael Keusch, a former German TV director, crafts a fine film with nice camera work, good dialogue, lots of action(mostly hand-to-hand with some nice akido showcased)...but the thing I really liked were the little details: the bad guy with syphilis and his creepy mask, some eyeball ripping, a few brutal gunshots to the face, and a funny cab driver who shows up for a few moments.

Format: DVD
"Shadow Man" is one of the better entries in a string of direct-to-video Steven Seagal films. The productions are decent and the supporting actors are better than usual. It is far from such films produced by major studios as `Under Siege' or `Exit Wounds,' but well, he seems doing most of his actions himself. But I believe most action film stars are supposed to do his stunts or at least make it look like that.

The story is, as usual, nothing special. Seagal is an ex-CIA operative whose daughter is kidnapped. And he is involved in some conspiracy about a bio-chemical weapon. As the story unfolds, you just start to follow the convoluted plot and anyway will decide to sit back and keep watching Seagal killing the typical villains mostly sporting English with Russian accent.

But what really matters is action, and the first 30 minutes are pretty good. The film opens with Seagal teaching his pupils in his dojo, flipping and throwing away them with his aikido, and that reminds me of his earlier films in the 80s. Then there are some OK car actions and shoot-outs, which are shoddily edited, but the stunt persons are doing good jobs. The film then loses steam, and actions get more and more insipid. Wait for one unintentionally funny scene in which Seagal's character fights back a helicopter only with a pistol. The results are laughably cheesy effects

As a mysterious taxi driver beautiful Eva Pope appears. Maybe she is too good for this film, but more surprising is the cameo appearance of Imelda Staunton, winner of Laurence Olivier Theater Awards and Oscar nominee for her amazing acting in `Vera Drake.' Watching her standing side by side with Seagal is a bit surreal experience for me.

"Shadow Man" is a better than average Seagal direct-to-video actions, but that isn't saying much given the efforts put to his recent films.

From the amateurish opening scene car chase, with Seagal's chubby mug filling the entire screen (and the green screen backgrounds from the car) to the really hokey ending - ugh!

The budget was very low, as the special effects of Seagal shooting down a helicopter gunship with his .45 really sucked And the insipid Kung-fooey school of students. Just can't say enough for this bad movie.

I think he has a double standing in some scenes showing him in the shadows or of his back (as in Belly Of The Beast) because he's really put on some oink-oink pounds. And he has terrible pancake make-up applied to his aging mug. Plus, his over-dyed black hair with out-of-style ponytail makes him look like a clown.

As much as I like Steven Seagal and his movies, I must admit that I found very little to like about "Shadow Man" - the Buddhist Bonecrusher's 25th action feature, directed by Michael Keusch (Attack Force). Everything from the storyline, production, acting, and action falls almost completely flat. The film feels like The Foreigner in rewind, with dreary visuals and poor fight scenes highlighting an over-complicated storyline that's impossible to care about.

The story: martial artist and businessman Jack Foster (Seagal) sees his daughter (Skye Bennett, Against the Dark) kidnapped during a mysterious airport attack while Jack himself is targeted by Romanian officials and mobsters believing him to be in possession of a devastating biological weapon. Gunned at from all sides, he must team with a beautiful ex-government agent (Eva Pope, "Coronation Street") to eliminate the threat and save his daughter.

My description may sound relatively simple enough, but nevertheless, this is one of the most convoluted films Seagal's ever appeared in. As an action hero, Steven has never really needed brainiac storylines to get over, but the script of "Shadow Man" calls for the plot to take at least two disorienting twists, feature a supporting cast the size of China, and require the viewer to juggle the intentions of several characters amidst the general chaos.
