Based on the 1930's pulp fiction and radio drama series, this movie pits the hero against his arch enemy, Shiwan Khan, who plans to take over the world by holding a city ransom using an atomic bomb. Using his powers of invisibility and "The power to cloud men's minds", the Shadow comes blazing to the city's rescue with explosive results.Written by

In the first scene where Li Peng takes Wu as a hostage, the joke is not subtitled or translated. In Thai, Ying Ko says "But too much like my father." See more »
The two door guards with an elevator in front of them are shot with arrows. When the second guard gets shot, it's obvious that the arrow isn't fired but appears from under his coat (released with a spring). See more »
In three days, the entire world will hear my roar, and willingly fall subject to the lost empire of Shan Kahn. That is a lovely tie, by the way. May I ask where you acquire it?
Is that mid-town?
45th and Madison. You are a barbarian.
Thank you. We both are.

I have watched the movie several times now after purchasing it and it actually gets better each time I view it. I would highly recommend the film to everyone.
At first (see my earlier comment) I found John Lone's villain to be too weak...but I see now why. The REAL foe in the film is not Khan..but the SHADOW himself. His inner darkside vs his good side. Lone is just there to show you what the darkside could be. HE isn't what scares the Shadow. It's his own past, his evil side, loss of control that plagues the hero.
I wish this had been better received because we could've enjoyed a few sequels by now. And the same goes for THE PHANTOM and THE ROCKETEER.
