Audience Reviews for The Shock

Again Chaney plays the role of a man who has something physically wrong, this time broken legs. His character is complex and interesting though, and he's a great actor, so it works. The story is sort of predictable too, but it's very suspenseful. I really enjoyed this thrilling romantic crime drama.
