There are some good concepts in this movie but it ultimately is a very intricately made movie to tell a rather dumb story.
Shadow is a sumptuous sensory feast filled with spectacle, surprise, and madness.
The real star of the show here is the strikingly gorgeous, often almost bi-chrome visual universe, inspired by the tai chi diagram — more commonly known in the West as yin-and-yang symbol — and traditional ink-brush painting, with its distinct combination of rich blacks and fluid shades of gray.
After the disappointing martial-monster mash-up of The Great Wall, this represents a return to the majesty and emotional finesse of Hero and House of Flying Daggers.
