Storyline

Haskell (Michael Caine) is assigned a job by his boss, the aristocratic Landon-Higgins (James Fox), to highjack a high security van in broad daylight while it's in the shadow run (out of radio contact with the main security firm). He assembles a team to carry out the heist, but things don't go according to plan and Haskell begins to think his boss might be double crossing him. Add to this, a teenage boarding school pupil has already witnessed some of the meetings of the team and Haskell's in real trouble. Written by Marjorie Johns <marjorie@citizencaine.org>

Goofs

In one scene where Haskell talks on his car phone, he is wearing sunglasses, a lavender shirt, and a purple tie. After a brief cutaway, he is wearing eyeglasses, a dark blue shirt, and an orange tie (and while he had the earpiece up to his ear in the earlier shot, he now seems to be talking to a speaker-phone). Later on (that same day), he has returned to wearing the lavender shirt and purple tie. See more »

"You and me have an arrangement, son"
4 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Let's face it, Shadow Run isn't action packed. It's a kind of slow burner that kind of flickers slightly for a while. That said, if you're in the right mood it's okay. Caine is gangster who finds out, via James Fox, that he can get his hands on the paper the Royal Mint use to make bank notes, and starts getting a crew together for a heist. However, he's also having to deal with an unpopular public school boy who witnesses his last heist. The story jumps between Caine getting the heist together, and this boy's bullying at the school. That's, err, basically it. You've got Tim Healy here too, and Leslie Grantham (thankfully nowhere near a webcam!). Things run along smoothly, but there's not real action in it. It's not a bad movie, just a bit bland. Hence the short review.
