Baldwin brings a real substance and dramatic weight to the role, he gives it everything and he judges it perfectly. And his bellowing laugh as the Shadow would make any criminal panic.

When people talk about actors like Reeve and Jackman being perfect for their roles, Baldwin should be included for the Shadow.
Christian Bale was the perfect Bruce Wayne that was finally given to us.
