Terrific plot with an unsuspecting twist at the end! Four stars hands down!
August 4, 2017
An easy to like and follow mystery, but the outrageous twist botches a promising set up.

A clever but implausible plot in a movie that at least manages to intrigue enough to keep you watching right through to the end. Contains a twist that will either shock or have you laughing out loud - possibly both.

Predictable, but then again it is almost 30 years later

Art/Direction and Bob Hoskins save this Neo-Noir from what could very easily, be reworked into a Noir spoof, given it's preposterous premise. Don't take it too seriously. Make some popcorn, try not to overthink the SHATTERING twist-ending, and you'll enjoy it.

Plot isn't bad, but Tom Berenger can't act his way out of a paper bag. However, I watched it for Bob Hoskins, who is always worth watching.

Berenger and Hoskins do an excellent job in this thriller with the most amazing intricacies. No, you're not even close on guessing the chilling truth, or how it's all going to end...

Watched it a long time ago but remember that it was a good movie!

Although some aspects of the plot do require substantial suspension of disbelief, I found this to be gripping from start to finish, throwing as many red herrings as it can at the audience to deter them from its simultaneously excellent and implausible plot twist. Definitely worth watching and probably more than once.

Amnesia, Flashbacks & A Shocking Discovery--Neo-Noir ala Petersen!!

I saw many, many years ago and I loved it. I would love to find it on DVD so I could watch it again.

I liked it. Sure, it's a bit far fetched, but I never saw the ending coming. It's a fun movie and I'd love to findit in a five dollar bin somewhere.

Twisting plot with typical plot cliche like amnesia, plastic surgery, characters coming back from dead, cars driving off cliffs, and about every homage to Hitchcock you can squeeze into one film.

Not sure why all the hate for this movie, it was well done, well acted and the twist was pretty original. Im great at predicting movie endings and this one caught me by surprise for some reason.

Despite some overly silly moments and a thin layer of residual 80's cheese permeating proceedings Wolfgang Peterson's clever script and tight direction will keep you guessing until the very end. And what a twist.

Awesome edge of your seat movie

(1991) Shattered

Based on a novel by Richard Neely with a screenplay by Wolfgang Peterson who was also directed the film starts off with a serious car crash accident with both parties surviving with one more serious than the other since the wife fell out of the vehicle while the husband stayed in. And while in hospital, his face has to be recontructed back together and he is Dan played by Tom Berenger, and while recouperating his wife Judith played by Greta Scacchi makes attempts to recount his lost memory regarding the accident since he gotten some amnesia /memory loss. And while at home, he accidently stumbles onto some pictures of his wife having an illicit affair with some stranger unoblivious who the person is and meets former associates to piece a part of his past together which includes Corbin Berstein as Jeb Scott a co-partner of a multi million dollar project and his wife played by Johanne Whalley Kilmer and Bob Hoskins as the P.I. Gus. The erotic scenes are at times distracting which lacks suspense ending the film with a twist that can't be seen a mile away since upon writing this review, this is my second viewing after many years.

3 out of 4

If it wasn't for the cast, especially Tom Berenger and Bob Hoskins, it could be bad. They carry the movie very nicely. Plus, the forgotten beauty Greta Scacchi - can't go wrong with her!
