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.

"All Those Who Enter Here"...OK...Shutter Island is NOT Hell, but what is Hell anyway? Our hero, Leo C. sets out on a quest for the truth about a disappearance at a mental institution on Shutter Island. Will he uncover the truth, and what is the truth anyway?

I will let others go into a synopsis of this movie. What I will tell you is that even if you have been given the entire plot...watch it anyway! I am one of those annoying people who almost always gets it 5 minutes into the plot, and I did with this movie. However, watching the acting, the interplay of characters...each little gesture of hand and eye...each struggle, internal and external, to dredge away the lies and reveal the truth is exquisitely portrayed!

For all its complexity and "other-worldy" atmosphere, Shutter Island is filmed with scrutiny, careful attention to detail and a love of the genre. The acting...excellent...LOVE Leo now that he has matured into a finely-honed actor. Mark Ruffalo is perfect in his role as the trusted sidekick. Ben Kingsley...well, as always a total joy! The storyline is inventive and well planned...executed to perfection!

I am a tough critic....loved this movie....will watch it over and over and each time I am sure I will get more out of it! Movies that make me think, surprise me when they can, make me delve into my own inner depths...that's what I call entertainment!!!!!
