English Summary:

The Shadow is a 1994 American superhero film from Universal Pictures, produced by Martin Bregman, Willi Bear, and Michael Scott Bregman, directed by Russell Mulcahy, that stars Alec Baldwin.

In Tibet, following the First World War, American Lamont Cranston, succumbing to his dark instincts, sets himself up as a warlord and opium kingpin under the alias of Yin-Ko (said to mean "Dark Eagle" in a Mandarin Chinese dialect). He is abducted by servants of the Tulku, a holy man who exhibits otherworldly powers and knows Cranston's identity. He offers Cranston a chance to redeem himself and become a force for good. Cranston refuses but is silenced by the Phurba, a mystical, sentient, flying, three-edged dagger. Ultimately, Cranston remains a student under the Tulku for seven years. In addition to undergoing rigorous physical training, he learns how to hypnotize others, read their minds, and bend their perceptions so that he cannot be seen, except for his shadow.

Returning to New York City, Cranston resumes his former life as a wealthy playboy, while secretly operating as the Shadow, a vigilante who terrorizes the city's underworld. He recruits some of the people he saves from criminals to act as his agents, providing him with information and specialist knowledge. Cranston's secret identity is endangered upon meeting Margo Lane, a socialite who is also telepathic.

Shiwan Khan, the Tulku's rogue protégé and a murderer whose powers apparently surpass Cranston's, wakes up inside the sarcophagus that once held his ancestor, the Mongol Empire founder Genghis Khan, retrieved from his unmarked burial site. He uses hypnosis to make a security guard shoot himself in the head after the guard refuses to join Khan's army. Khan plans to fulfill his ancestor's goal of world domination. He offers Cranston an alliance, but Cranston refuses. Cranston acquires a rare coin from Khan and learns that it is made of a metal called "bronzium" (an impure form of uranium) that theoretically can generate an atomic explosion. He also learns that Reinhardt, Margo's father, a scientist working on building an atomic device for the Department of War, has disappeared. Cranston deduces that Khan needs Reinhardt and his invention to complete an atomic bomb.

 

Hungarian Summary:

A főhős a korábbi tibeti drogbáró, akit a 30-as években arra ítéltek, hogy New Yorkban vágjon rendet a bűnözők világában. Egy keleti mágus révén természetfe- letti képességekkel rendelkezik, ám most hasonló hatalmú ellenfélre akad: Dzsingisz kán világuralomra törekvő leszármazottjára.

New York a harmincas években. Vérzivataros és bűnökkel terhelt múltját maga mögött hagyva Lamont Cranston a távoli Tibetből érkezett a metropoliszba, és feltett szándéka, hogy ezentúl a jót szolgálja. Ő a titokzatos Árnyék, aki képes ellenfelei elméjét összezavarni, és eltűnni a szemük elől. Egyedül ő képes szembeszállni Dzsingisz kán ugyancsak különleges képességekkel rendelkező utódjával, a világuralmi terveket dédelgető Shiwan kánnal, aki a kísérleti stádiumban lévő atombombára pályázik. Az Árnyék amúgy is komplikált feladatát csak nehezíti, hogy megismerkedik a csábos Margóval, akinek apja az ügyben érintett neves tudós.
