I liked the drama but was a little put off by the complete lack of mystery about whether the storm was coming or not.

The acting is exceptionally good, has some nice cinematography and I think it shows very well how it would be like to be schizophrenic. Has a few creepy moments (I'm a wuss) and the ending is perfect

pretty good. a little on the nose and predictable, but michael shannon and especially jessica chastain are fantastic. for most of the movie i really liked the score, but the song that plays over the end credits is fucking AWFUL. seriously bad. i wanna knock this down another five points for that song but that doesn't seem fair. oh, and people who are mad about the last scene are very silly.

Whether this movie was about the dreams/apocalyptic storm on the way or a family dealing with mental illness and the willingness to cope and love, it still shined in my opinion. The acting and script were spot on. I am just frustrated that so many hate the ending or misinterpret it.

I found myself getting impatient with this film and felt that it could of done with being about 30 minutes shorter - if you're going to do a movie that is slow paced, fine, just try not to drag it out too much. Acting was good and I really liked the score.

A tough film to review. The struggle that plays out in Curtis' life between the need for security and the desire for normalcy is dramatized very well. Shannon is great in the lead, while Chastain plays a believably confused yet supportive wife. However, the film suffers from a bit too glacial pacing, as well as a final sequence of shots which destroys the fundamental ambiguity that Nichols has so carefully constructed over the course of the film.

One of the greatest films I've seen in a very long time, I don't even remember why I have it, but i'm so glad I got for whatever reason.. Amazing acting, even greater directing and a good script. Just a pure good cinema, fresh. It was good!

An undoubted work of genius. Tense, frightening, beautiful & touching, "Take Shelter" is indeed a rare concoction; mixing family drama, psychological exploration & possibly even a whisper of sci-fi!? The characters are brilliantly written, their relationships honest & real, with Shannon's performance absolutely staggering! The score is great too & there are several monumental scenes in this masterpiece from Nichols, but it was the epic final moments gave me goosebumps! Must see it again soon.

Stylistically cliche, but rates at least a 90 for the marvelous script that crosses the line on so many 2010 topics: climate change, terrorism and its effects on the paranoid US political culture, mental illness, America's shitty healthcare system wholly inadequate for families with disabilities, economic impossibilities for the middle class, etc.

The film is often overpowering in its emotional impact, thanks in large part to Shannon's role as a truly tormented, heartwrenchingly fragile family man (and his wife, tormented by association, but sympathetic all the same, played wonderfully by Chastain), and to Nichols's pace which begins as a slow-burn, and continues to a finale which is nearly suffocating in its anxiety and subsequent catharsis. Phenomenal stuff.

An absolutely phenomenal film. Michael Shannon gives an incredible performance as a man who might be losing his mind, and is terrified by the thought of that. He's backed up wonderfully by Chastain as his almost unbelievably supportive wife. The movie builds the tension continuously throughout, leading to an extremely appropriate finale. A true masterpiece.

Powerful acting by Shannon. Excellent story and very well done overall. Curtis is the kind of character who may seem slightly obnoxious in his mystery, but he's a believer.

Typically this type of movie, no matter how good, has the disadvantage of setting up for a pretty narrow either/or climax (in this case; He's either crazy or his premonitions are correct). Take Shelter moves beyond this, and offers a honest, believable drama with fantastic performances and an great sense of ambiguity (up until the coda, which I'm still a bit on the fence about)

This is a cool, unusual movie with great performances from Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon. Jeff Nichols builds the tension in this film so well, it will really suck you in to its world. I urge skeptical people to give this movie a watch.

I can only describe this movie as depressing. From almost the very beginning you see the life of a man unravel because he believes his dreams about a storm that's coming will come true. He starts building a storm shelter and puts his family in debt, he loses his job and his family suffers. The movie moves at a glacial pace but having patience pays off as the ending is quite wonderful. I'm just not a fan of watching someone's depressing life for an hour and forty-five minutes.

It's not about the storm. This is one of the most touching films about family, trust and understanding that I have ever had the pleasure of viewing. The relationship between Curtis and Sam takes us through the emotional wringer, powered by impeccable performances from Shannon and Chastain. Curtis's unraveling and obsession with the shelter is riveting, to be sure, but more poignant is the honesty and commitment of this 21st century American family in the face of medical and economic hardships.

Schizophrenia is my greatest fear so I bought into story and protagonist right away. Michael Shannon is great, and I guess he was an obvious choise for this role. I feel that the script needed some extra work on it - ambiguous ending in this case feels like a total cop-out.

Michael Shannon is simply one of the best actors working today. That he wasn't nominated for an Oscar for this role is, as the trite expression goes, absolutely criminal. The film maintains a well-balanced, well-paced sense of increasing tension for its entire running time. Some of his visions were quite frightening. And boy, that ending. I'll just say this: the more I think about the ending, the less certain I am that I "got" everything about this movie. Deceptively complex. Great stuff.

This is an overlong, rather dull psychological mystery with sci-fi overtones and it proves that there really isn't such a fine line between vague and incoherent. Despite the studied restraint the ending is nevertheless overdetermined and inevitable. Michael Shannon tries hard, I guess, but his part serves the premise, not the other way around.

I like Take Shelter because I'm an American and this movie is clearly about American apprehension and paranoia, or, specifically, the anxiety of becoming a father and starting a family in the modern-age, and the feeling you get from Jeff Nichols' story is a feeling that's very strong and very real, for many families and many people. An exciting work, because Jeff Nichols made this when he was only 32 years old, and hopefully has a promising future ahead of him.
