Did You Know?

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 »
Continuity: In the scene when Seagal shot the two cops in the apartment, the surviving one had a bullet hole on the back of his jacket with a blood stain. However the jacket is new and clean in the later scenes.See more »
Anya:[Jack enters a public women's bathroom] I wondered if you'd come in here or if you'd wait outside. You must be getting desperate.
Jack Foster:Oh, I am desperate. You know why? Somebody's got my daughter.

Messy and Noisy, 22 December 2007
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The former CIA agent Jack Foster (Steven Seagal) travels to Bucharest with his daughter Amanda (Skye Bennett) and his father-in-law George (Michael Elwyn) to spend vacations in Romania. In the airport of Bucharest, Jack sees his daughter being kidnapped by the taxi driver Anya (Eva Pope) and the limousine of George exploding. He chases the taxi with the CIA agent Harry (Vincent Riotta) and he finds that different groups believe George gave him the research of a lethal virus. While trying to rescue his daughter, Jack is entwined in a network of traitors and criminals that are disputing the powerful biological weapon and he has to fight to survive.

"Shadow Man" is another messy and noisy movie of Steven Seagal. The screenplay is terrible with an awful development of the characters and the situation, and along the first fifteen, twenty minutes, the viewer does not know what is happening. The cast is above average, highlighting the awarded Imelda Staunton and Eva Pope, but unfortunately the story is not good. I found funny to see the character of Steven Seagal with a girlfriend (with a wonderful body) and having a romance with Anya, since it is unusual in his movies this type of situation. The locations in Bucharest are very beautiful and with a better screenplay, this film could have worked. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "O Homem Sombra" ("The Shadow Man")
