Reviews


90
The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
The story in itself is first-rate. However, it’s the very measured handling that makes it distinctive.
80
Empire - Dan Jolin
As beige as an old PC, but beneath the surface the blood pumps bright scarlet. An intelligent and emotionally charged spy drama.
80
Total Film - Neil Smith
An expertly calibrated drama confirming Marsh’s status as one of Britain’s most formidable filmmakers.
80
Film.com - Unnamed
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.

Variety - Justin Chang
Shadow Dancer is admittedly slow to gather force and momentum over its 101-minute running time, though by the third act, the deliberately paced drama has exerted a hypnotic grip.
