What did they do to The Shadow?
8 August 2012 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

The Shadow as presented in the pulps was a hard nosed, tough, superheroic vigilante - fighting crime with .45 automatics in each hand.

This turns him into an incompetent dandy, essentially a copy of Dick Powell as the Thin Man, minus the charm, lovely wife, and alcohol.

The other characters also bear little resemblance to their names. Moe Shrevitz is no longer a street smart cabbie, but a bumbling wimpy sidekick.

The worst part is you don't see The Shadow, really. He is in his Lamont Cranston role for the whole movie. Again, it's like they copied the formula used in other detective comedy movies - The Falcon, the Lone Wolf, etc, instead of The Shadow. And it's a shame, The Shadow was The Batman of his day, he deserved better.
