A recommended watchBy Missgotty (13 reviews) , 22 Nov 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I really liked this film. There was layer upon layer of tension building up throughout, with the main character battling between trusting his instincts or possibly going mad, and the effect his behaviour would play on his family, friends and society. Take Shelter was shot extremely well and the acting abilities of the main couple were amazing.
This movie is a slow burner and may not appeal to everyone but I loved it.

Slow burning.....By tudalen (5 reviews) from Pembrokeshire, Wales , 16 Mar 2013Great atmosphere and plot keeps you guessing. Not a 'hollywood' ending, but is real life hollywood? Psychological thriller with a twist.
not badBy a customer , 22 Feb 2013At the beginning i thought the pace of this film was too slow, with to much unnecessary pausing, but as the film moved on it got better mostly because of both actors gelling so naturally together and the ending was perfect.
Quite long and slow moving but....By SallyAnn29 (1 review) , 18 Feb 2013Quite long and slow moving but a great insight into mental health issues and the stigma attached to it, worth a watch
It's good but not great.By a customer , 14 Feb 2013Slow build up,nice acting,great visuals,the ending a bit like a twilight show which was a bit of a let down.
disappointing endingBy Faerie30 (26 reviews) , 13 Feb 2013OK film, the build up is far better than the ending which is very disappointing and frankly pointless. I would not recommend it.
