Amazing. So well done. It takes you to a place of paranoia in yourself that you might not know existed.

Best movie I've seen this year. It will seem slow only if your attention span has been numbed by CGI-filled action movies like Transformers. For everyone else, the pace will be perfect. Michael Shannon is staggering.

Amazing lead actor. The movie was slow but not boring. It was heartbreaking to watch his madness unfold.

Michael Shannon proves yet again that he is deserving of being called a great actor.

User review rating: 4 October 23, 2011

With Take Shelter, Michael Shannon has his most prominent showcase to date, reuniting with Jeff Nichols, the writer-director of his little-seen 2007 drama, Shotgun Stories.

The suddenly ubiquitous young actress from The Tree of Life and The Help is luminous and poignant as a woman struggling to deal with her husband’s drastic mental decline while giving

I also expected great things from this film but was disappointed. The acting was great, especially by Michael Shannon, but the pace was quite slow. The film sets up a certain premise about the main character, which in itself was interesting, but the abrupt ending confuses things. It could have been much better if the issues of mental illness and a possible apocalypse weren't intertwined.

I read the great reviews and went in expecting something special. My mistake as this movie was so BORING and uneventful, I cannot believe the positive write ups it received in many publications. I wouldn't even recommend this as a rental, unless you need a good sleep. Oh dear!
