The film was released for the first time on DVD by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on November 1, 2011.[3] It was scheduled to be released on Blu-ray by Mill Creek Entertainment on October 2, 2018 as a double feature alongside Nightwing.[4]


Critical response for Shadow of the Hawk has been mostly negative. Roger Ebert gave the film two out of four stars, criticizing the film's screenplay, and dialogue.[5] Time Out London panned the film, calling it "A tired, TV-style chase movie", and stated that the film's only point of interest was Dan George's performance.[6]

Alternately, Kurt Dahlke of DVD Talk gave the film a more positive review, commending the film's imagery, and special effects, while also noting the occasional "static pacing", and what he called "dueling-eye-closeups".[7]

The film was the third-highest-grossing English language Canadian film of all-time in Canada with a gross of $1.5 million.[1][8]
