Review by anonymous (posted on 18-Apr-2006)

I was Jan-Michael's stand-in and photo double for this film. At the time we all thought it was pretty cheesy and sadly that is a pretty accurate diagnosis. The special effects don't hold up by today's standards and they didn't even at the time. I remember Jan saying at one point that the only thing left from the script he had signed on to do, was the car chase. All that aside, Jan is great in the film, he was on a roll at that time with three or four very good performances in Buster and Billie, White Line Fever and Baby Blue Marine. Shadow of the Hawk also included in the cast, Marylin Hassett who had just scored big with The Other Side of The Mountain and of course the great Chief Dan George who later starred with Clint eastwood in The Outlaw Josie Wales. Although Shadow is at best implausible, it does have its moments (see the car running into the invisible wall) and it is a window into three movie careers in transition. It was shot entirely in and around Vancouver (in those days a big deal) and the scenery is beautiful. For me it is nostalgic to watch. It was a great experience for a young actor and Jan was a great and generous guy.
