Trivia

Imelda Staunton filmed for two days, but Seagal did not film any reverse angles with her. All the scenes where her character speaks with Seagal's character were done with the help of a stand-in and a Romanian film student. See more »

Quotes

Jack Foster: [Jack is holding a martial art class] So the idea of dim mak or any kind of internal technique, is not to hurt others, but to help others. Dim mak can be used to heal people, it can be used to kill people. This is the nature of chi. Chi can be used in striking for just external...... or internal. If you go to the internal organs, you'll do great damage. External, you can just move them a little bit.

Not Steven Segal's worst film, but it is still pretty bad
9 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I admit it, I am not a Steven Seagal fan or of his films, but I do keep watching them for curiosity. As far as they do, Shadow Man is pretty bad, but it does start off quite promisingly and it for me is not as bad as Out for a Kill, which is a serious contender for Seagal's worst film ever. Plus there are some striking locations. However, the camera-work is very slapdash a vast majority of the time, and the direction is pretty incompetent. The story is messy and predictable, the action is barely risible with some poor doubles, the film is dreadfully scripted and the pacing is sluggish. Sadly the acting doesn't fare much better, fine actress Imelda Staunton especially deserves much better than this but she tries hard with an underwritten role. Seagal is part of the problem, I actually consider him a poor actor overall, and this is no exception. Here, he looks very tired and unkempt and he seems to be going through the motions. Overall, marginally better than I thought, but that is faint praise. 3/10 Bethany Cox
