Shattered (Butterfly on a Wheel) Reviews
Pierce Brosnan is a bad guy holding a couple's daughter hostage and has them do his bidding
it's rather tense, thrillful, and quite perplexing in the direction it goes
the final reveal is something of a convention but it ties everything in coils
the other reveal is something of a spine-chiller totally twisting everything around
it's creepy once the credits roll showing what happens when a family such as this reaches its breaking point face with despair, abandonment, and fear
Pierce, Maria Bello, and Gerard Butler make an extravagant lineup
Pierce Brosnan joined the film's cast in late 2005. Maria Bello and Gerard Butler joined production on 19 January 2006.
Filming began in February 2006 and finished the following May. Vancouver stands in for Chicago but the production shot in the latter city for landscapes before moving to the United Kingdom for post-production. Filming also took place in Los Angeles.
The 2010 Indian Malayalam film Cocktail is an uncredited remake of Butterfly on a Wheel.
The 2014 Indian Tamil film Athithi is also an uncredited remake of Butterfly on a Wheel
The film's title is an allusion to a line of Alexander Pope's poem "Epistle to Dr Arbuthnot": "Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?" The line is usually interpreted as questioning why someone would put great effort into achieving something minor or unimportant, or who would punish a minor offender with a disproportional punishment.
