Starts well but will leave you feeling like you've wasted 2 hours of your life.
I'm giving this 1, simply because the first half built the expectation that this movie may be halfway decent.
Julianne Moore's performance is great as usual, the cinematography and score are above average for Hollywood and Jonathan Rhys-Myers gets to overact in a variety of different characters... sounds OK right?
Wrong! The second half of the movie descends into an oozing morass of nonsense and bible-bashing claptrap. I'm not even objecting to the overly religious theme per se, it's that even this is completely incomprehensible in this movie. I could drive a bus through the holes in the plot.
What's worse, the ending leaves way for a sequel... please NO!
At the end, my partner and I both started shouting expletives at the screen.
With Shelter we wasted four hours total of our lives and I am writing this so that you don't have to.
