He finds evidence of her cheating on him with Jack Stanton which was gathered by private investigator Gus Klein Bob Hoskins. All in all a fantastic little movie! Judith had intended to stop the affair with Stanton. He slowly begins to realize that everything may not have been as rosy as his wife would have him believe and things get even more interesting when he learns that he paid for services by a street wise private detective named Gus played by Bob Hoskins. He keeps getting flashbacks about events and places that he can't remember. He comes out of a coma with amnesia, full of general knowledge but completely ignorant of his own family life. Judith says she and Dan covered up the murder by disposing of Stanton's body in the shipwreck. It's just so unreal that it makes the movie feels like it's cheating.

Apparently I don't have enough lines of text but I really don't have any more to add. Jack, at the last second, rolls out, while she plummets to her death. Now, before we get into the various whats and wheres of how you can watch 'Shattered' right now, here are some details about the Davis Entertainment, Capella International thriller flick. The way to make the story work better is for Dan to have some facial disfigurements. Several critics find the revelation too ridiculous to accept, while others find it inventive and clever. The movie also does a good job drawing you, the viewer, deeper and deeper into the movie without even realizing it with the direction of Petersen, the story, and the actors; Tom Berenger does an excellent job in his role, as does Greta Scacchi. Dan dredges up a body of a man who looks exactly like himself.
