Editorial Reviews

As a boy, he saw his preacher father murdered. As a soldier, he witnessed the horrors of the Civil War. Now bounty hunter James Conners (Justin Ament) has returned to the town of Legend, New Mexico to marry the beautiful girl (Marnie Alton) he left behind and capture the psychotic land baron (Angus Macfadyen) who destroyed his childhood. But when Conners is ambushed and left for dead, he discovers a Native American world where justice has no name and vengeance rides in the shadows. Daniel Baldwin, Michael Spears (DANCES WITH WOLVES), Tonantzin Carmelo (INTO THE WEST) and William Sadler co-star in this epic western about revenge, redemption and the man the Navajo called SHADOWHEART.

Customer Reviews

The acting wasn't very strong.
Melaina Lara
There are certain characteristics of the genre and the reason Westerns often seem to fail nowadays is because filmmakers just don't understand the genre.

It starts out badly, and from there, it just gets worse.

Shadowheart promises to be a thrilling western about a man who returns for vengeance on his father's murder, only to "discover a Native American world where justice has no nameand vengeance rides in the shadows." From this, Shadowheart sounds very promising. As other reivewers correctly note, however, the film falls far, far from its description. The story is slow going (taking about 30 wandering minutes to really take shape), and the meeting of this Native American tribe (of two Native Americans) is, at best, a wandering side plot to a wandering main plot.

THE BEST: If there is anything that brings Shadowheart to life, it is the wonderful acting by Angus MacFayden (Saw V, Californication) who portrays an absolutely WONDERFUL villian in the murderous mayor Will Tunney. MacFayden undoes at least a little bit of the damage done by the overall stiff acting and awkward dialogue ("Dead or alive? I prefer...dead!") It is not exaggeration to say that if MacFayden hadn't been cast in the role he was, I'd have given the film two less stars.

THE WORST: What really killed this film is the very wandering plot (guy sees his father die, fights in the civil war, comes back to hometown, gets married, attempts to lock up fathers killder...). In addition, the dialogue and plot line has a bit too many cliches for me.

My reccomendation? With its meandering plot, dearth of suspense, and cheesy dialogue, you should pass.

Shadowheart is the story about a boy growing up in the west who witnesses his father murdered by a callous man played by Angus Macfadyen who is hell bent in becoming a land baron by robbing people of their land at whatever the cost.

James Conners played by Justin Ament goes off to grow up and joins the ranks in the Civil War, witnessing horrific acts and learning to survive. He returns to avenge his father and marry the girl he left behind, Mary Cooper played by Marnie Alton.

They marry but do not live for long in happiness for she is killed and thanks to Native American Indians, James Conners in the end avenges his father, finding peace and living up to the image of Shadowheart, a transformed individual thanks to his experiences while living with his Navajo friends.

The movie is predictable, the characters are not well developed, and while the filming scenes are enjoyable, we found this movie lacking the style of great westerns.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Shadowheart was an interesting movie for me. I liked the story overall, set in early west New Mexico, pre/post Civil War, where a young boy leaves a gritty growing town only to return to deal with his angst from his childhood and to cleanse himself from his difficulties he went through during the Civil War.

The movie itself is a little slow paced, yet the story itself is engaging with a few glimpses into some great potential. The actors do a great job in their parts. You will recognize a few of them. Telling is the work of Angus MacFadyen (who played Robert the Bruce in Braveheart). He is the bad guy in the movie, and you really get this gut wrenching feeling about the character, so he really does a great job. Frankly, we get the bad guys always looking smart or clean, but this guy is just an ugly mess. Great performance.

The movie is soft on language and not much if any gore. Although the violence is not completely off screen, there is no spurting blood everywhere when someone gets shot, so at least, you are more into the story than the gore.

Justin Ament is fairly new to me, so I was impressed with his acting, very serious brooding character who has flashes of insight on where he needs to be as a person.

I liked this movie and rated it a 4 for overall, yet the story line itself would be a 5. It made me feel a little like Unforgiven as far as the feel of the screen work. It could have used a little more on the wide view or panorama view to get a larger feel. I think it would make a great TV pilot and would make a good TV show like Lonesome Dove.

The only negative I felt that there were too many lines to follow, his childhood, the Civil War, the run in with the Indians, the train and the bad guy. More focus by taking one of the items out would have helped.

"He came for revenge...he found redemption" is the tag-line for this movie. I won't spoil the film, but as far as that tag-line goes...not really. And that is my main problem with this film. It had no idea what it was trying to say. It leads you in the direction of God and redemption, completely ignores it, and pays you off with...well, I can't say without putting spoilers in the review. I'll just say, the ending should have been different, considering the actions and words of the characters. At the same time I was afraid that this would be a movie that over preachy, and it was not.

The plot, briefly, is typical Western fare. A preacher is killed, the son goes off and comes back years later for revenge.

Cinematically, this feels like a Halmark or Disney channel made-for-T.V. movie. Having grown up on the films of Sergio Leone, I have a love of Westerns where you can feel the grit. Where you can smell the stink coming off the actors on the screen. In "Shadowheart", everyone has perfectly shampooed hair and bright clean clothes. Even after a fight, characters have perfectly and artistically applied dirt and blood to their clothes. The most hilarious is the main character's glued on mustache when he returns to town, to let you know he's a "tough guy".

The writing and acting, for the most part, is fairly dreadful. The "bad guys" are the most hilarious of caricatures. Black Bart meets Yosemite Sam. The Navajo are portrayed as both the "noble savage" and as the "magical healers". Two stereotypes for the price of one. The railroad surveyors are hilarious anachronisms.

The only saving grace for this movie is that, in spite of its relatively safe PG-13 approach to filming and story, there is a surprising amount of darkness to the film.
