Critic Consensus: Beautifully filmed and inventively choreographed, Shadow is a thrilling and visually sumptuous wuxia epic that finds director Zhang Yimou near peak form.

Critic Reviews for Shadow
If The Great Wall felt like Yimou was turning his greatest hits into something dispassionately bland, then Shadow takes the familiar and makes it feel startlingly new.
It's always good to see this side of Zhang's work. "Shadow" will not soon be forgotten.
"Shadow" is absurdly entertaining once you get past that first introductory hurdle. But the rest of the film is well worth the wait.
A rapturously beautiful work...combining the exquisite details of Chinese ink-brush painting with the melodramatic extravagance and suspension of disbelief of opera.
