Shutter Island (2010) Review
Written by: SinisterEdge
So I would like to try and keep this review to a minimum because quite frankly, this movie is hard to review without some spoilers. First off, i will start out by saying that this movie was simply AMAZING. It will keep you on your toes and send chills down your spine. And just when you think you realize what it going on, you are left in the dust. Now on to the review.... Leonardo DiCaprio play US Marshall Teddy Daniels who is assigned alongside his new partner Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) to investigate the disappearance of a patient of a mental hospital on Shutter Island. Daniels soon realizes that maybe there is more than meets the eye with what is actually going on in the hospital and soon starts to try and get to the bottom of everything. Martin Scorsese does a great job in keeping the audience pulled in through the entire duration of this film.
By adding suspense and drama through every scene. And he scores big by wants again casting such (in my opinion) phenomenal actors once again. The musical score in this film was like nothing I have ever heard in a thriller before which fits well into the style the film was shot in. Overall the dialogue of the film flows perfectly and the actors pulled in the emotions quite well. Now the only problem with this film I felt was that some of the shots felt a little out of place and out of focus.
I don't know if this was done purposely or not, but this is the only reason Im marking this film as a 9. Overall though, this film was simply stunning and left me in my seat well through the credits, just hoping for a little bit more. Scorsese and DiCaprio once again make a great team and I am looking forward to the next movie this two get together on. Shutter Island is most definitely a movie that you need to make time to go see and when you do. Make sure you pay attention to all the little details that this movie has to offer.
