This was a great edit. I had some issues with the original film, which this edit almost completely remedies, such as the odd comedy and the slow opening. The new changes are so seamless at times that you wouldn't even know anything was different without looking at the changelogs; and some of the changes, such as the dream sequences, are so smartly done it's hard to believe it wasn't done this way to begin with.

A small detail I greatly appreciated was the inclusion of pulp and comic cover art during the opening credits. Very stylish.

The only part that caught my attention and made me do a double-take was the "next time you get to be on top" bit. In order to get rid of the joke, the line was muted, which creates an odd 1.5-2 second scene of the Shadow just menacingly staring at the guy's dead body in silence. Even though the goal was to erase the joke, it ended up still being kind of funny.

If you are a fan of The Shadow, then you owe it to yourself to see this version of the film.
