The critics agree: it was worth the wait!
Kaplan vs. Kaplan’s David Kaplan calls Shanghai a “quality … film.”
New York Post‘s Farran Smith Nehme raves: “It’s a spy saga set in 1941, with … gunfire, knife fights, drug addiction and a bit of sex.” Everything we look for in a movie!
Rex Reed of The New York Observer notes, “The … script … is by a writer.” What a novel idea!
Chicago Daily Herald‘s Dann Gire gushes: “Neo-noir Shanghai … really comes to life”!
Andrew Barker at Variety writes, “It’s … hard to imagine why the Weinstein Co. was in no particular hurry to get it out.” Extra years means better quality, Barky! Like a fine Merlot.
