Just as her quick wit is winning them over, strange happenings and holes in her backstory incite paranoia surrounding her true mission. But this crew has more to fear.

Chloe acts her heart out. From her fun roles like Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass or her incredibly committed dramatic performance in Hugo, you can tell that she is an actress with a lot of range and potential. Overall, the best thing to say about this film is that the central performance is great and the film is never boring, as its 83-minute run time does fly by.
Shadow in the Cloud mainly just feels like a bunch of random ideas smashed into one film. The script did not match up the great actors it features. Also how did the baby remain unharmed throughout the entire movie? This film has some ‘cartoonishly’ over the top parts that will genuinely make you laugh out loud. So you may enjoy it for that reason.
