Reasons to watch this movie..Graham Greene, Shirley Douglas...
25 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The interesting title "Shadow Lake" might sound intriguing, but the story surrounding the discovery of a body beneath the frozen ice is less than the sum of it's parts. The acting is very spotty. Frederich Forrest is so over the top that he becomes nothing more than a damn annoyance. Joy Tanner in the lead gives a totally unbelievable performance, and not in a good way. Finally, the puzzle solving is so contrived, believability flies out the window, never to return. There really are only two reasons to watch this movie. First, Graham Greene is a terrific actor, and when he is on screen as the modest but wise police chief, the movie is in high gear. Second, Shirley Douglas is wonderful as Joy Tanner's bitter Mother. It's really a shame that these two performances are almost overcome by the inadequate script. - MERK
