Shattered - PUT dOWN YouR KEyboARD and RUN DON"T WALK to your video store and rent (or buy) this movie.
If you liked Ransom with Mel Gibson & Rene Russo, this movie blows it out of the water. I have no idea why this movie was a direct to video because NOTHING about it speaks of that. The cast is top quality with Pierce Brosnan, Maria Bello, and Gerard Butler. The story & dialogue are excellent. The Film production quality is also top notch, just like any other "blockbuster" movie you've seen this year. Maria & Gerard are a married couple living an upper class lifestyle when a stranger (Pierce) appears suddenly one day and proceeds to dismantle their life as they know it at gunpoint. Some of it was predictable but I realize that it was probably intentionally so because they're lulling you into thinking you know what is going to happen. Even at the end when I thought I knew the twist, I'd only caught onto the first part of it so it was very refreshing to see the story keep bending further past the anticipation twist every time.
