Re: The Shadow, the Phantom or Dick Tracy?
DICK TRACY... only because it was done with style, taste & dignity! ! !
the phantom was true to the material but badly acted... Billy Zane played himself.. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN DONE SO MUCH BETTER...
The Shadow, I'm sorry to say (BEING ONE OF MY FAVORITES) didn't hit the mark...it could have been as Dark as 1997's Spawn, but they chose to go the fun, campy route! ! ! They used some Aussie guy who had only done music videos up to that point to direct! ! !
Alec Baldwin could have been a much better Shadow if the script was better... WHEN I THINK THE SHADOW, i think the 1940 movie serial.SUCH A BETTER FILM
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either. - Kurosawa
