5.0 out of 5 stars Impeccable and Brilliant, NOT what it seems July 11 2010
By Richard S. Warner TOP 50 REVIEWER
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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars All Those Who Enter Here..... Aug. 22 2010
By Lesley Z TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"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!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars YIKES !!! April 16 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is like the old fashioned scary movies. Very well written and acted. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone that just wants to see a really well done movie that is not waste your time like so many movies today. This is one of those very few movies that leave you talking about it for a long time and telling people "what a great movie you have to watch it".
