  • Riseborough once again transforms herself dramatically, expanding her role as best she can. But neither the hesitant script — adapted by Tom Bradby from his own novel — nor the sluggish tempo give her enough support. show more

  • The story in itself is first-rate. However, it’s the very measured handling that makes it distinctive. show more

  • Like the political turmoil which inspired it, Shadow Dancer is fueled by the fire to do the right thing and the sacrifice that must follow, and for 100 minutes, it’s a crackerjack ordeal to behold. show more

    Absolutely terrible movie. How Clive Owen would take part in this movie is beyond me. Of the five people I watched it with, none thought it was any good.
