When Lamont is trapped in the giant water tank he dives down to bottom to breathe from bullet holes shot in wall. Air bubbles are seen coming in from outside. This would be impossible given the enormous water pressure that would be expected within the tank. If anything water should be able to cause a slight suction in the general bullet hole area. Instead Lamont is also able to stick his finger through without much problem either. Not to mention on exterior view of tank water is not seen pouring out in a spout at all. See more »
The Shadow is one of the best super-hero films ever made. Ranking up their with Superman (1978) it's one of those rare gems that boasts of a cast deserving of their roles and superb writing. A sleek, noir adventure full of action, intrigue, truly evil villians, and one bombshell of a heroine. the Shadow is not one to be missed.
