Movie Reviews

Shattering Entertainment!
Jeffrey Scott Shapiro | New York, New York | 07/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fantastic suspense thriller, rich in Hitchcock influence and filled with numerous twists and turns. It is by far the best mystery in recent years. Tom Berenger is a recovering amnesiac who has survived a near-fatal car crash with his wife, Greta Scacchi. After undergoing successful reconstructive face surgery, Berenger tries to piece his life together to recall his identity. The partner of a high-powered San Francisco architectural firm, Berenger begins to feel out of place when he can't seem to remember his old designs or his friends. One by one, those closest to him secretly tell him contradictory details about his life and his marriage. In some accounts, he treated his wife badly, while in others he was a good husband. Although the stories don't add up, Berenger is certain of one fact - his wife recently cheated on him with a shadowy man named Jack Stanton while the couple and their friends were vacationing in Mexico. With the help of a private investigator, played by Bob Hoskins, Berenger discovers that Stanton is still alive and that his accident may have actually been an orchestrated attempt against his life. Torn between who to believe, his instincts and his paranoia, Berenger delves deeper into his past only to find a stunning and shocking conclusion - that either himself or someone close to him has killed in the past... and must inevitably kill again to protect a dark and terrifying secret."

"Great Wolfgang Petersen mystery! When Tom Berenger awakes from a bad car accident he finds he can not remember much. He begins to see flashbacks and his conversations with others help him to realize who he really was and who was murdered. This is one of the better movies I have seen Berenger in and I enjoyed it. Good supporting cast, music, and sets. Well worth owning on DVD. If you like this be sure to catch Tom in "Shoot To Kill" which will also be out on DVD soon and in "Sniper"."

"SHATTERED is Wolfgang Petersen doing Brian DePalma doing Alfred Hitchcock and as a mystery/thriller, it has some intriguing moments. Tom Berenger stars as David Merrick, a wealthy businessman who is in a horrible car crash, needs plastic surgery and has amnesia to boot. Greta Scacchi is his devoted wife who tries to nurse him back to health and help him remember his past. Bob Hoskins shines as a pet store owner/private investigator who also tries to piece the puzzle together. All is not as it seems though; is Scacchi trying to kill her husband? Is she having an affair with a handsome stranger? Is Corbin Bernsen wearing a toupee?
The movie keeps your interest and although the twist at the end is fairly obvious, it does keep you guessing."
It thrills pretty much

"A thriller based on a loss of memory after a car accident. Banal. That poor man who is trying to know what happened and is feeling that something is not what it should be, has it all wrong from the very start and is the prisoner of the real killer who is ready to do anything to keep him. But is the loss of memory hiding the past of the man or the past of the murderer ? That is the question and that's where the plot is as thick as smog. Till the very last minute, or nearly, there is no hope for you to know the truth and when you finally know it it becomes so hectic on the screen that you do not even have the power and energy to scream, and scream you should.
