Summary: I really liked this film but my partner really wasn't stuck. It has a good plot, a few twists and left me thinking about it for days. My partner really couldn't get into it and struggled to be involved in the characters and the plot. I would recommend so you can at least make your own opinion. Not the best Dicaprio film but by far the worst.
Summary: I have to say that Leonardo certainly chooses fab films to star in ... I have not seen anything he has done that has not been enjoyable. This is a really terrific and original, if dark, thriller. Expertly shot throughout, great screenplay, and I really had no idea of the ending! Brilliant. Could watch again and again. BUT it was sad so not 5 stars!
Summary: The opening scene of Leonardo Di Caprio's bum is the memory I will take from this film; not because I like his bum, but because Leo's bum holds true throughout the picture. Imagine a film from Leo's bum's perspective, and you have a good idea what Shutter Island is about. 3* rating but only because I have to-to get this message out. id rather not rate it.
Excerpt: I could go on about the hidden brilliance of this masterpiece for hours. Scorsese is so unpredictable. I respect him for his risky changes of style and exploration of various genres. With Shutter Island he has delivered (in my humble opinion) a smart, delicate, philosophical and dramatic feature, which I consider one of his greatest films. The Academy must have something against Leonardo DiCaprio, because he is snubbed every frigging performance he brings to the screen.
Excerpt: Alot of people (both critics and moviegoers) were calling Shutter a middling, mediocre film when it first hit theaters. I guess when you compare it to Martin Scorsese's classic films, which have become some of the best ever made, it may seem that way. In my opinion, this is a damn fine movie. It does start off kind of slow, only at times. I have to say, I was pretty disappointed at how short Jackie Earle Haley's role was, considering he was one of the draws for me.
Summary: Shutter Island is a brilliant movie. Excellent job done by the actors including DiCaprio and Ben Kingsley as well as others. The suspense part of the movie is the highlight of this movie. The twist in the movie is simply unimaginable. Overall, a great suspense movie.
