Format: DVD
Martin Scorsese has made many great films but often he really tops himself and creates an oustanding one. "Shutter Island" is one of them.

Almost immediately, within minutes, you start to suspect that things may not be what they seem. Two US Marshalls, alone on a ship, discuss their latest assignment. The language style being spoken by DiCaprio, as Marshall Edward Daniels and his new "partner" Chuck talk about the "case" they are about to undertake, seems stilted, formal, almost cartoonish. Its all very Film Noir and artificially stylized, like B-movie dialogue. So right away you start to ask if Scorsese has made a Film Noir homage or if he has just made a bad film. There is a touch of doubt that skews easy involvement. It starts to create a kind of psychological tension that slowly begins to creep its way into your mind from behind. Something just isnt right, right from the outset.

The two detectives arrival on the truly formidable shore of Shutter Island is met with an electrically tense and visibly extreme concern. Again, its seems a little over the top. Nervous guards, and there are many of them, watching their every move, with rifles cocked and at the ready, belie a situation of the gravest and most dangerous urgency. It all seems just a bit extreme and excessive when it concerns the disappearance of a female inmate, one Rachel Solando, at the high-security asylum for the criminally insane. DiCaprio IS a US Marshall after all, come to help the prison-asylum solve the case of the missing woman. And it is odd even further that when the Marshalls are asked to disarm, Daniels pulls his gun out with ease and comfort while Chuck fumbles with his like a rank amateur ...

I bet a lot of people went into this movie not knowing it was by the legendary Martin Scorsese, and then left saying "I already knew the ending" or something. Then there are Scorsese fans who don't like it because it isn't a crime movie or biopic or something. I don't understand all of the hate this movie received, because I thought it was on par with some of Scorsese's other masterpieces like Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. Then again, I'm not exactly a conventional Scorsese fan, because my favorite movies by him seem to be his most modern ones (The Departed and The Aviator). I mean, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and GoodFellas are absolutely some of the best movies ever made, but I just felt like The Departed topped them all, and The Aviator just felt so much different than other Scorsese movies that I instantly loved it. Wait, this is off topic. Point is, I had already read Shutter Island, so I was thrilled when I found out there was a movie adaption coming out. Then I was practically bouncing off the walls when I found out Martin Scorsese was directing and DiCaprio was starring. Then I watched the movie and was basically in love within the first 5 minutes (which tends to happen with all of Scorsese's movies). I knew the entire plot, yet I still loved the movie (shocker, right?). I honestly don't understand why people don't like this. Like seriously, someone tell me. It has all of the makings of a fantastic movie: rock solid cast, great acting (one of DiCaprio's best roles in my opinion), an AMAZING atmosphere, and a perfectly suitable score. Then you get to the parts where it messes with your mind, where you can't tell what's real and what isn't.Read more ›

Saw this movie in the theaters and have been waiting for it to come out on Blu-Ray.
It was a great movie and I never saw the twist coming at all, and it blew me anyway when it happened.

Also Amazon again BSing on the price. Its really 38. NOT 48.
so 33 you are saving $5 NOT 15.
No idea where they get their bull crap numbers from. clearly NOT from their competitors like Future Shop.

At first I was braced for some kind of action romp. Mainly based on the soundtracks initial strains. A direct rip of Kubricks cuts of Ligeti used in The Shining. And as the marshals approach the institution, the music swells almost hilariously more than Scorcese's 'Cape Fear', and then stops abruptly. So I was WTF at first. But as the movie plays out and reveals itself, it is Martin's way of having his own psychological fun with the audience. It's a daring approach, and almost lost me from watching the movie completely - thinking it was going to be a mere cheap farce. But thankfully the movie does get engrossing, and the soundtrack subsides to a more fitting and respectable level. The cast is wonderful, and as sinister as Kingsley and Von Sydow appear, the viewer will be left wondering at the end still. DiCapprio is excellent as well, and begins much more 'mature and macho' at the beginning, and is whittled down to his usual boyish demeanor by the end - but rightfully so. All in all, it's twists and turns from start to finish, and is a quirky pleasure from Scorcese and crew. ,

The date is 1954. A patient is missing from an asylum (Ashcliff). Yet it seems impossible. So ex World War 11 soldier, now U.S. Martial is sent to investigate. What he finds or does not find on the island of secretive people will intrigues us as the story mores into much more than a simple investigation.

If the Dr. Caligari story had not been done repeatedly so many times over the years, this film may have been surprising and more enjoyable. As with all hybrids, there were some tossed in dashes of "The Manchurian Candidate" (1962), "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1956) and maybe the kitchen sink for good measure and voila. Does Marin Scorsese think no one goes to the movies? He cannot be that naive. At least the actors (well known) were really acting and not walking through the script. Leonardo DiCaprio is believable as Teddy Daniels. The music is also a character and does not overwhelm the dialog. A nice touch was any blood looked more like theatrical makeup so it did not overwhelm the story.

I only saw the Blu-ray version so I cannot compare to others.

I have to admit that I have not read the book yet.
