This Movie was unknown to my Couchmate and she was ready to give it a shot.
I knew this one from back when i was little, and to be honest, i have not seen it for ages.
So all in all seeing the changes or be specific in detail is hardly possible for me, as the Original is tucked away in my brain so far, hat i couldnt see all that has been done.
BUT i could feel it. I know that this is a different movie, that some poor comedy was no longer there and that the Characters all are more "visible". More understandable in a way, if oyu know what i mean.
The Shadow probably could have been even more, back than, but for know this edit makes it stronger. A briliant watch.
A good fun and Action movie with love for the details that back in 1994 have been Overshadowed.
Its the only Version we gonna watch now, and this will not be the last time.
lapis molari was extremely courteous and thankfully I have nothing ill to say of this editor's work. When I was a small boy I first saw this movie and it really left an impression on me. Now, all these years later, I know many elements of the movie will have aged poorly. In general hollywood inserts a lot of cringe inducing "levity" to most everything they produce. This edit presents The Shadow story very straightforwardly, with awkward humor eliminated. Now in this edit we begin the story with The Shadow and slowly learn his backstory. This edit makes the movie more fun, more true to the spirit of the source material and more artful (by taking away the detracting material)
If this edit had been the movie that was released in theaters it would have been a classic. I would rather watch this version than the original. I love how much more sincere this cut feels.
