    4.0 out of 5 stars Moody Fun To Tickle Your Psyche October 3, 2000
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    ...though how in the (blank) could Universal have released this on DVD and NOT done WIDESCREEN? The DTS transfer is as crisp and clear as you'd ever want, but this is a movie of astounding visual scope that cries out for a widescreen version. (I have this movie on VHS, DVD, and Dolby Digital Laserdisc, and the DDLD is by far the best of the three, because it's widescreen and the DD is amazingly crisp for LD.)
    Still, though, there's a lot to like about this movie: Alec Baldwin is dead-on perfect as Lamont Cranston and his darker side, The Shadow; Baldwin can go from charming to chilling with one flex of his facial muscles, and that ability is nicely on display here, even if The Shadow is buried under a hat and cloak and heavy makeup. Penelope Ann Miller looks gorgeous as Margo Lane, the blonde bombshell with a brain to match, but isn't challenged much by the material. John Lone chews up scenery as Shiwan Khan, last descendent of Genghis Khan and darker reflection of The Shadow's edgy goodness. The art deco sets are terrific; the music is rich and moody; the visual scope of 1933 New York City is breathtaking.
    I recommend this one with qualifications: If/when a widescreen version comes out, get it instead of the other DVD or VHS versions. But the movie itself is well worth seeing, particularly if you're an old-time radio fan.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good movie, Questionable DVD May 27, 2005
    Format:DVD
    I saw the movie in the theater and enjoyed it very much! The ending was a bit abrupt but the ride was great. Baldwin played the part just right and the whole world of The Shadow was very well done. The only problem I have with the DVD is that, to my knowledge, it has never been released in wide screen format. How Universal could release such a good movie in pan-and-scan only is a mystery. Even the DTS version isn't in wide screen! Aside from that, I think this movie would be a pleasent suprise to sci-fi fans.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Movie 5 stars, Aspect Ratio and Transfer: 1 star. September 24, 2006
    By BL
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    This is probably my choice for "most underrated movie" ever.

    I love the premise, characters, casting, and especially the score. It will be old news to Batman Begins fans, due to similarities in origin (rich man loses his identity in Asia to return a transformed crime-fighting force)... but keep in mind, this movie came out a decade earlier, and the Shadow is older than the Batman in general. Also, Cranston (a.k.a. the Shadow) is darker than Batman.

    Baldwin is great as the gravelly-voiced Shadow, but belts out a good maniacal laugh when he needs too. You can't stop looking at the Shadow. Penelope Ann Miller also turns in a very good performance, as does John Lone as the villain.

    The DOWNSIDE to this disc is that it very much lacks in transfer and aspect ratio. It's presented in 4:3 (1.33: 1), for boxy old TV... a real letdown for a great film. The transfer is also very poor... dirt and scratches appear obviously in the opening titles.

    Still, it is very much worth seeing - a lot of fun and an absolute MUST for anyone who enjoyed Batman, but it will not live up to your system if you have a top of the line audio/visual setup.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A great movie that's even more enjoyable with DTS sound. September 1, 2000
    Format:DVD
    The Shadow is a crimefighter that uses his ability to "cloud" minds to confuse and strike fear into criminals (his chrome .45s help him out with his crime fighting efforts as well). He also uses his ability to recruit the victims of the crimes, so they can help him with his crime-fighting efforts. I thought this movie was written well and had excellent sets and special effects. The casting in this movie was done well. Alec Baldwin was perfect as the Shadow and Penelope Ann Miller was perfect as the love interest who had her own powers of persuasion. I think the critics were a little tough on their reviews of this one, paying more attention to the art deco styling than the plot.
    I decided to purchase the DTS sound version of the movie since I remeber the movie having great sound effects that were muted in the VHS version. To my surprise, the sound in the DTS version was actually BETTER than in the movie theater. You can hear the Shadow's laugh circle around the room, like you're actually there. The movie gets five stars. The DVD as a whole gets 4 stars because I felt that the movie would be even better if it was in the original widescreen format. At the time this DVD was made, the DTS encoding took up most of the avalable space so there were no extras on this. Unfortunately, Universal has not made any announcements to re-realease this now that DVDs can hold more information.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Good movie hampered by limited DVD conversion June 10, 2000
    Format:DVD
    I really liked the movie, even when it got too thin in the script department. The production was slick and maintained my interest during the whole movie. It is relatively short, and would be good at a party. Just don't expect the script quality of a Tim Burton's Batman movie.
    The downside is that the DVD conversion was not that good. For example, I noticed that the French version had better visual quality than the English version, like during the intro, when the title "The Shadow" appears. I think this DVD is a direct-from-VHS copy. Not the best of all methods!
    The features are quite limited. It is not even widescreen. No extra footage...
    Frankly, you are better of buying the VHS version of this movie.
