Critic Reviews for Shattered

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3)

The movie is finally so ridiculous it cannot be taken seriously as a thriller or anything else, but there are moments that work, and you'll love the look on the hero's face when he discovers the identity of the dead body.

At times the melodrama overtakes the suspense, but for the most part, the conundrums remain interesting.

"Shattered" is a purely escapist entertainment venture.

Audience Reviews for Shattered

Hitchcock inspired tale of amnesia has Berenger trying to piece his memory and his life together after a really bad auto accident ... "and what about that dead body over there, who's that?" Wolfgang Peterson penned and directed this trifle bit of escapism.

Tom Berenger wakes up from an accident with no memory, a great job and a great wife. Well, almost a great wife. Except for the fact that she wants to kill him.
