Trivia

All of the playing cards used are manufactured by the United States Playing Card Company. The brands shown are Aristocrat (very hard to come by), Bee, Bicycle, and Tally-Ho (which is primarily available in the New York City/Long Island area). The USPC also created special decks of casino grade Aristocrat SHADE cards with the film logo as a gift to writer/director Damian Nieman. See more »

Gutted... i was expecting more.

SHADE

I was disappointed with this.

I had never heard of this before which surprised me. This movie has a very impressive cast list which is why i bought it. But it was just very very average at best.

The film is about poker... a lot of people conning and ripping off everyone else. No-one can be trusted.

The film stars Stuart Townsend, Gabriel Byrne, Thandie Newton, Jamie Foxx, Melanie Grifith & Sylvester Stallone.

That is a lot of very good actors in one movie. But I am surprised they took this film on. It's pretty slow going.

There are a few good scenes in the film. I like the way some of them get hustled. Very impressive. And you get to see some really good slight of hand card tricks. I also liked the ending... I should have seen the ending coming, but it was a good twist at the end.

Don't get me wrong... I didn't hate the movie. It just felt like a straight to TV film but with big stars.

I will give this film 5 out of 10.

It's alright I suppose, but don't let the stars make you believe this is going to be good...
