Plot: A perfect family's dynamic is ruined by a kidnapper's brutally efficient plot. Runtime: 95 mins Release Date: 23 Aug 2007
I don't understand why is TNT doing so little to promote this film. The distribution company can not be having financial problems. But to sell it to TNT. And to watch TNT do no advertising for one of the better "thrillers" is sad. So what is the problem? The actors are recognized names in the United States. Is this some kind of test to see if you can put a film on TV have no advertising to let the public know and see what happens? Why release a film with A list actors and spend large distribution dollars when we can sell it to cable and see what happens.Is someone testing out a <more>
new marketing tool for films? I must say if it was not for IMDb I would have missed this film. And what is sad about this is I watch TNT regularly but still had no clue It was coming on the air tomorrow. Lions Gate shame on you... You don't treat your documentaries this badly...
Not just another child kidnapping movie! (by frbrthr22)
When I first read the plot of this movie I figured I wasn't going to like it. I have always hated movies where kids were kidnapped so I went into this movie already hesitant to watch it. I was happy to see though that once I started watching this film it was completely out of the norm. Not just another child kidnapping movie. This movie had depth to its characters and twist and turns around every bend. Once Pierce Brosnan came onto the screen you already hated him after 20 minutes. He was destroying these nice peoples lives. I can't lie...the real reason I watched this movie was <more>
because I am a die hard Gerard Butler fan. And I should tell you I was exceedingly pleased with his performance. And I was so happy that Gerry actually didn't die in this one like all of his other films:] Well this film is a must see for anyone that likes suspense or Gerry. The final twist in the end will have you dumbstruck! i hope you get around to seeing this amazing movie! You won't regret it!
Okay, I'm a huge Gerard Butler fan - I admit it. So is my 14-year old daughter. In a word, this movie was superb. The whole cast was wonderful. They were all right on the mark. My husband and I were both in suspense throughout the movie and we are still talking about this movie. My daughter made a comment about Gerard in this movie that I wouldn't expect, but that's because we both know he's such a fine actor. One of the bit actresses over-acted, but that's cause I thought I could do a better job and be in a movie with Gerard!! If you haven't seen this movie, run, <more>
don't walk, to the video store and get it. You will not be disappointed.Also, I've read many of the reviews. People say they figured out the ending. No way. You're just mad because you didn't figure it out during the movie. Yes, some details came back to me at the end, but I don't try to pretend I could figure out the end by those details. Also, if this were to happen to you, you may not decide to slam into something since he's not wearing a seatbelt. You might be so surprised, shocked, whatever, that you might not even think to do that. Think about how you feel after you have an accident and then you'll get the point. And I kept thinking "call the police; call someone" too. But when I thought about what I would do in their situation, well, if you don't have children, you might never know what you would do, but I for one would walk through the pits of hell for my children. Yes, they were away from him for moments in time, but they were afraid to risk their child's live.Laura
It has been a while since i have seen a movie that i can't guess it's finally after the first 20-30 minutes....no more comments , just watch that movie.I can't think at other comments that would not spoil the story but the damn guidelines are asking for minimum 10 lines....so.The story is original, i can't remember to have seen this subject in a movie before, and the performance is almost perfect, the characters seem to be able to hide the motives behind their actions until the very last moment...contributing at the tension of the movie. In one word, i can't understand why <more>
so few people have voted for this movie...i vote rarely , but i could not stop myself to vote for this one
Hi, I live in Miami and I went to see this film on July 27.I will keep it short and sweet. This movie was a really great thriller. All three actors were phenomenal!!! I'm usually the type of person who figures out the end of these suspense thrillers, but this one had me thinking until the end, I love the twists and turns and the mind games. I thought Gerry was fantastic, his accent was fine with me, I love Pierce as the villain and Maria is spectacular. I always go into a Gerry movie without expectations but he went through every emotion in this film and he was right on. I was on the edge <more>
of my seat pretty much the whole time. I give it two thumbs up and this film really needs a wider release!!!I hope you all get to see the film because it is a roller-coaster ride!!Will definitely see it again, I'm sure I missed a lot.
An absolute gem of a thriller (by Craig_McPherson)
Every once in a while a movie comes along without any great fanfare, advance hype or viral marketing a true sleeper, as it were and causes the viewer to wonder how such a gem flew under the radar. Such is the case with Butterfly on a Wheel released in North America under the title Shattered .The title Butterfly on a Wheel, taken from the Alexander Pope's 1734 poem "Epistle to Dr Arbuthnot", refers to someone putting massive effort into achieving something considered minor or unimportant, and is cryptically referred to at various points in the story and pretty much sums up <more>
the entire plot of this movie.Gerard Butler plays Neil Randall, a Chicago advertising executive and rising star at his firm. He appears to have everything going for him. A boss who views him as the heir apparent, a loving wife, adoring moppet-headed daughter, nice house, car he's living the American dream. That is until everything comes to a grinding halt when, on an outing with his wife Maria Bello they find themselves hijacked by Tom Ryan Pierce Brosnan , a mysterious stranger who tells them his associate has their daughter captive and unless they wish to see her alive again, they must complete a series of arduous and cryptic challenges.From there unfolds a cat and mouse game with Ryan's motives becoming ever more difficult to decipher as the movie progresses. With a plot peppered with enough red herrings to keep you guessing I thought for sure I had it all figured out early on, only to be thrown for a loop , Butterfly on a Wheel/Shattered is paced to perfection, strongly acted by all three principals, and delivers a smart, almost too clever story.What's more, it will leave you thinking about it long after viewing, and even motivating you to go over scenes again to try and find flaws, which may be there, but are very cleverly hidden.While the media blitz that tends to foreshadow most movie releases undoubtedly benefits the film studios, in this case I can honestly say that knowing zero about this film going in actually worked in its favor, and has me marking it as one not to be missed.
I'd never heard of this movie until it showed up on DVD sites a couple of weeks ago. Then I read the comments here and thought, "Pass." But there was not much to choose from the other night, and the suspense/mystery/thriller genre is my favotire these days, so ... I picked it up. Glad I did because my wife and I enjoyed the movie. Certainly not a GREAT film, but very good. I liked the story, the film was nice and short, good characters. And we loved the ending and the twists. They were very clever. Overall, a solid suspense drama. Too bad this film didn't get released. Saw <more>
When their happy lifestyle is suddenly interrupted and turned upside down by the forceful intrusion of a menacing kidnapper Brosnan , Abby and Neil Bello and Butler are left with no choice but to follow the increasingly difficult demands and tests set them by this man. It's edge-of-the-seat stuff most of the way, with plenty of twists and turns and even when you get to that stage where you think you know all the answers, something else catches you off guard. The three leading actors all provide sound performances in this intelligent, edgy little thriller, with Brosnan proving yet <more>
again, because a lot of people seem not to have realised it before, that he really can act.
Worth seeing for something different!!! (by bpecelj)
I had to speak out after seeing quite a few negative reviews. Especially to the ones that label this cliché and others who turn it off after 30min -- are you kidding me! I applaud the writer Morrissey here for trying to create something different and unique! It is. There are a few small issues and one big one at the end but for the most part very entertaining. The way I saw it is -- The Game/Fatal Attraction combination. I work in the business and as far as I'm concerned there are far far worse ones being made daily. I do see this one as a gem, if nothing else, for its courage to hang <more>
out something different. It won't change the world but there is meaning to be found for those pundits that say this an absolute mindless ... bad behavior can have consequences, and what about trust?? Something to think about.... For those that can't see the beauty in that you can always go rent "Dude Where's My Car" for intellectual fodder!
