Oban 14 in "Butterfly on a Wheel" (aka "Shattered")

    It is never a good sign when a film company can't even decide on a title for their movie.  I've personally seen this film listed under the names Shattered, Desperate Hours, and simply The Butterfly.  It grossed $20,000,000 at the box office when it came out in 2007 which means 2,000,000 people paid $10 to see it in theaters.  Let me know if you've ever met one of them.  In all fairness, this move is actually pretty damn good.  Some fine acting and great plot twists.  It is also well paced and the director does a great job of ratcheting up the tension.

SPOILER ALERT: The Oban appears at 1:22:00 in the film during a scene in which a major plot point is revealed.
