Enquanto mantém o espectador no escuro com relação às intenções do personagem de Brosnan, o filme funciona muito bem; é quando tenta amarrar as pontas soltas que percebemos que o roteiro não tinha muita segurança com relação ao seu desfecho.

...a fairly effective little thriller that's backed by a blistering pace and a trio of expectedly strong performances.

A mind controlling Thriller, with an enjoyable role played by Pierce Brosnan. A gripping Thriller with an interesting twist.

Intense film about a couple who are taken into confinement by a sociopath who claims to have abducted their daughter. Neil and Abby(Gerard Butler,Maria Bello) must comply with a man(Pierce Brosnan) who doesn't want their money, but to destroy the seemingly perfect marriage for reasons that unfold as the story progresses.
There's quite an interesting twist in this film, and the acting performances by Butler, Bello, and Brosnan are well done.

WOW i realy thoroughly enjoyed this movie! it was a really intense and thought provoking movie that leaves you stunned at the end, this film probably has one f the best endings ive seen in a long time, and it will shock you!!
The acting was fantastic by everyone and maria bello is gorgeous as always, pierce brosnan puts on a stronger irish accent which is sexy as well.
Its about Butler and his wife Bello have a perfect life, perfect husband perfect wife and child, when they leave there child with a babysitter and head to work they are startled when driving when pierce brosnan is in the back holding a gun at there heads!
Secrets start to unravel and this iss a smart intense thriller!!
Really worth a watch!!

Pierce Brosnan once again attempts to work his way out of the cloak of Bond by playing a mad man tearing apart the lives of perfect couple Gerard Butler and Maria Bello in Shattered. Their perfect life is "shattered" when Brosnan's character has their daughter kidnapped and begins a game of cat and mouse that could ruin their lives forever.

The film is a nice little thriller that seems to have slid under the radar. The leads are great, though some of the situations are a bit over the top and the filmmakers do a great job of alluding to the motivation behind this whole caper without spelling it out for us in Spahetti-O's. Shattered is an above average thriller that delivers what you want to see.
