Trivia

When the project first came about, the title was Shadows on the Sun, it was being written by Bey Logan and also had an entirely different plot. The original story was a period piece with Seagal as an intelligence officer who runs a medical clinic in Japan after World War II. By September 2005, however, Logan was no longer involved, and the script was being penned by Joe Halpin. It was re-titled Shadows of the Past, and the plot assumed its current form. . See more »

Goofs

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 »

Kind of like seeing a sporting Icon, a few years after their prime! (Maradona)
9 October 2006 | by buckforrisSee all my reviews

The last time I saw Seagal, was in Exit Wounds. He'd really packed on the pounds since his glory days, but then I watched this film, during an action man rampage (Icidentally, Dolph Lundgren's The Russian Specialist was my clear winner) and boy was Seagal looking fat, old and horribly sweaty.

Shadow Man has no plot to speak of, it's just a bunch of guys who turn up to get beaten up by Steven Seagal. The film is poor. Seagal as well is half asleep, he's awful here. It was actually saddening to see once one of my idol's (I took up Aikido cause of him) looking so unwell. It's my estimation that he's probably done a few too many films past his prime, a bit like Brando, without the talent.

Shadow Man has in its favour some nifty, and violent action, but not nearly enough of it, to overcome the boredom elsewhere.
