Storyline

As a favor to his longtime lover Dr. Susan Silverman, Spenser agrees to investigate the stalking of a theater company director, pro bono. But before he can get started, an actor is killed by an arrow in the middle of a play. Now that there's a real-life murder to investigate, Spenser and Hawk, get to do what they do best--even if it means death threats from the Chinese underworld, being ordered out of town by the tough local police chief, and dodging bullets and crossbows at every turn. By the time they leave the quaint ocean front community, the population has decreased by three, and live theater will never be the same. Written by A&E

Interesting Adaptation
8 September 2001 | by (Brooklyn, New York) – See all my reviews

Although Robert Urich captured the physicality of the Spenser character, Joe Mantegna carries off the character's flippant one-liners and quiet badass manner in a more mature manner. Mantegna's calm, reasonable explanation of his (Spenser's) job to the leader of a Chinese Tong is a dead on perfect novel-to-film translation.

Unfortunately, some other parts of the movie don't hang as well. I love Ernie Hudson, but can't buy as him Hawk. But then again, who could follow Avery Brooks's portrayal of the character? If Brooks was unwilling to reprise his role, then it should have been renamed and given to another actor who could have made it his own. And Spenser's visions should have been more intergrated into the plot. Was he seeing these visions as a warning that he should get out of the private eye biz?

Minor qubbles aside, I loved WALKING SHADOW as I've loved all of A&E's SPENSER movies and I hope they continue to produce them. Joe Mantegna seems as if he's really comfortable playing Spenser and he throws off them smart ass/sarcastic lines REAL good. I luv ya, Joe..
