Format: DVD
This documentary chronicles the tumultuous end to Bret Hart's WWF/E career. Watch as a generally well regarded technical wrestler is forced out of the spotlight by the charismatic, fowl character of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and his brawl-style moves (including the stylish Stunner)! Watch as Titan struggles with a product that is seen as moldy and stale and replaces it with a hip and edgy style of programming (Unfortunately, the WWF's final triumph would be spurred by the events depicted in the end of the film, and thus that part of the story couldn't be fully developed)! Watch as Hart deftly exploits nationalist tendencies on the Canada/U.S. border by becoming a heel only in the U.S.! Watch as long-standing corporate loyalties and long-standing friendships are violently destroyed in front of millions of people! A must for wrestling fans, Canadian nationalists, marketing gurus, friends of workers rights (in and out of trade unionism), and documentary buffs.

THE GOOD
I'm not gonna go into the speel about what happens in the documentary. Many other reviewers have done it already. I'll say it's an interesting documentary especially since it gives an idea into one of the most nastiest incidents in the sport.(more on that later)
THE BAD
A little one sided as far as the screw-job goes and presenting it. But that I guess is to be expected since this is a documentary about Bret. Also it's edited wrong and events are out of sequence. The 10 man tag match in Calgary took place in July of 97 a month before Bret fought the Undertker for the title and in the middle of Bret's anti-american angle(the survival of the fittest comment by wrestler Animal was him saying that the match wasn't about Canada vs the U.S) Bret's anti-American tirade happened the night after he wrestled Austin and before Austin attacked him in the ambulance.
Final thought's
Did the wwf/wwe screw Bret or did Bret screw himself? From the looks of it the answer seems to be the latter. When he went to WCW he went from being one of the top wrestlers to the hightest paid mid-carder in history and to quote Mick Foley's biography "WCW couldn't make Bret a star even though he was already one."

This documentary really sheds light on a bunch of things that I'm sure that makes Mr. McMahon feel very uncomfortable. Who should we believe? Well, that really depends on you, the viewer. I really think this is an interesting side of the WWF (now the WWE) that very few have ever seen.
The movie is about the life and career of a very well known and famous wrestler, Bret Hart. It's about his life and his struggles with the WWF. And with Mr. McMahon, of course. Though wrestling is scripted, THIS is not. You also get to see the lighter side of Bret. The family side. You also see the toll his career takes on them.
I was really in awe as I watched "Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows." A very interesting documentary about the dark side of wrestling and the lives it can make....or destroy. Highly recommend this. Even if you don't like wrestling, you still might find this interesting.
In the end, Vince says "Bret screwed Bret." After seeing this, I'm not too sure about that. Don't know what to think. I really do enjoy the WWF, but it's hard to know for sure who was right. This documentary does open you mind to ideas and theories. In the end, it's really YOU who decides is telling the truth.

Brett "The Hitman" Hart may not have the "popularity" as "Hulk Hogan" in his prime (or even current mat favorite/villain "The Rock"), but he still remains one of the superstars of the "sport". In this insightful report on the wrestler's last days with the WWF, the viewer gets to see the highs and lows of those that decide to go to work in wrestling singlets.
Whether one takes the sport seriously or as prefabricated entertainment "drama", the documentary offers something for everyone. While the "battles" are short, the insider's look at Hart's life shows that wrestlers are more than the "cartoons" they portray in the ring.
This is one "rumble" that satisfies.

What a killer story. I can finally say I can not stand wrestling, I have lost all respect and love for wrestling ever since I picked up that god awful Ric Flair D.V.D, but one thing I can look back on and truly respect in Wrestling with Shadows it set the tone for the W.W.F in the late 90's and was the true death of repectable wrestling, its sad, humourous, smart, honost, the greatest behind the scenes documentary on wrestling ever it is even better then Beyond the Mat, and better yet the whole thing does not look cheesy, best of all Vince displays a shiner in the end could you ask for anything more.

Just one comment, as far as the comment 'Bret screwed Bret' goes, many people are connecting that with his move to WCW. It wasn't a move that helped him, even he says WCW had no direction but lest we forget, Bret was TOLD by Vince to get the contract from them, as he couldn't honour the contract he was offered by the WWE. See that, he was TOLD by the man to do so.
It's pretty clear as to who was the bad guy and who screwed who and gues what?
He's not Canadian.
