"Gillen slid[es] neatly into the sadistic fop role most recently the preserve of Gary Oldman..." – Los Angeles Times
Director David Dobkin, on why he cast Aidan in Shanghai Knights: "Because of his attitude and his focus. And that he was willing to take direction. I think there are a lot of British stars who are such great actors and who think they can't completely give in to making Hollywood films—you meet them and there's a reservation. But Aidan was all for going for it and giving it his all. He knew what kind of movie it was. It's Saturday matinée entertainment. He brought everything from his stage work as a thespian to the role." – BBC
That shot above with Owen Wilson doesn't actually have Aidan in it, but there is a wax figure on the left that is based on Aidan's character in the movie!
"...the bad guys aren't terribly menacing until Rathbone picks up a sword toward the end." – New York Post
