Riverting, Suspense, Maze of Action

Enticing from the beginning as an unconventional job "interview" and eye openning clock and dagger identity maze. Brillantly played by Melanie Griffith, Michael Douglas, Iaam Neelson and the rest of the cast developing their characters with skill through their dark secrets... Full review

at first I thought it was just a film about war but as the movie goes further you wouldn't want to missed every second of it.A love story that shows being loyal to your loved one gives credit in the end.... Full review

Shining Through is the most flagrant offender of this kind that I've seen so far. Shining Through is told as the proud flashback of Melanie Griffith's character, Linda Voss, leading us to think that this is perhaps a true story. ... Full Review

Linda thinks it's an adventure right out of her favorite Hollywood movies....Shining Through is an awful lot of fun for a movie that's nothing more than slickly packaged fluff.....everybody's favorite working girl, Melanie Griffith, chirping.....He indulges both weaknesses in Shining Through , giving an overblown, self-important cast to a movie that should float like gossamer.....Griffith shows an unexpected flair for the script's rat-a-tat dialogue..... ...

Shining Through " is such an insult to the intelligence....But there is never any believable romantic chemistry between Griffith and Douglas....Here is a film in which scene after scene is so implausible....there's a hilarious scene in which she flees, frightened, through the city streets in a red opera cloak....The movie is told in flashbacks, for no good reason, with an elderly, agonizingly coy Griffith recalling her story for a BBC interviewer..... ... Full Review
Shining Through fails as an espionage thriller, but also as a romance.....Griffith can't muster enough charisma for us to believe.... ... Full Review

Shining Through lacks the spark that would propel it into the stand-up-and-cheer type of war/romance film it so obviously was meant to be..... ... Full Review
