Andrew McCarthy was originally the lead (and was listed as such in the Hollywood Reporter American Film Market special issue for 1995). Andrew McCarthy eventually made "Perfect Assassins" for the same production company (Promark). See more »
When Bob pays for the gas he is told it is $17. Bob hands the attendant a $20 bill and gets only two $1 bills back and not three. See more »
I thought Shadow Men was good, for a direct-to-video flick. Oh sure, the special effects weren't great and there were a few plot holes here and there, but otherwise, it was ok. There was a sort of creepiness about the whole thing. Afterall, would you really want to be chased by the MiB? (And I'm not talking about the light-hearted MiB of Jones and Smith).
