For what it is, it's pretty good.
1 August 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Despite this film coming out in 1933 when the Shadow was a popular pulp character, this movie has nothing to do with this American character that fights crime. Instead, the Shadow in this British film is a scum-bag that is an expert at blackmail as well as murder--and Scotland Yard is at a loss for how to stop him or as to his identity. The film has a few things going for it--though the middle portion of the film is a bit slow and a couple of the characters are too broadly written--especially that awful old woman who cries way too intently! Overall, however, it is better than you'd expect for a low-budget mystery film. I've seen an awful lot of films similar to this one but "The Shadow" is a bit better--thanks to some interesting plot twists and a great first portion. Worth seeing if you like old-time B-movies, like I do.
