YesAsia Editorial Description

Zhang Yimou returns to the martial arts genre in the staggeringly beautiful period epic Shadow which premiered at the 75th Venice International Film Festival. Winner of four prizes including Best Director at the 55th Golden Horse Film Awards, the slow-burning saga is a stately dissection of political intrigue and power struggle between a general, his shadow and his king. Lensed by Zhang regular Zhao Xiaoding, Shadow is presented in near monochromatic photography evocative of a traditional ink wash painting and features award-winning costume and production design by Horace Ma and Chen Minzheng. Deng Chao (Mermaid) takes on dual roles opposite wife Sun Li (Mural) in the Three Kingdoms era epic, which also co-stars Zheng Kai (The Great Wall), Guan Xiaotong (The Promise), Hu Jun (As the Light Goes Out), Wu Lei (Asura), Wang Qianyuan (Peace Breaker) and Wang Jingchun (So Long, My Son).

Trouble brews in the Kingdom of Pei after an enemy state occupies contested territory. Aggressive military commander Zi Yu (Deng Chao) and King Pei Liang (Zheng Kai) disagree over war and diplomacy, leading to a tense showdown in the royal court. Unbeknownst to Pei Liang, Zi Yu is in critical condition and has deployed doppelganger Jing Zhou to pose as him. Trained for years to be Zi Yu's "shadow," Jing Zhou is suddenly thrust into the conspiracy and Machiavellian powerplay of his master and the King.

This customer review refers to Shadow (2018) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
Nice-looking Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
If your expecting anything like "Hero" or "House of flying daggers", it won't be found in "Shadow". The complicated political story didn't engage me. I found the plot to be slow-paced and did get bored watching the film.
The only good I can say about the film is that it is beautiful looking and the performances are very good. The action scenes are O.K but nothing special (and not long enough). It has good finale but takes a while to get there.
