Shutter Island

Damn, Scorsese. Six of your movies down and none failed to impress me.

U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his new partner Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) are sent to Ashecliff Hospital to investigate the disappearance of a patient. As his time at the hospital progresses, Teddy starts to grow suspicious of the reputation of Ashecliff...

Shutter Island definitely had me on the edge of my seat. I love how Scorsese creates a Hitchcockian mood throughout. Yes, I was aware of the twist halfway through, but it's how it's executed at the end that makes it the more shocking. The music managed to build up the tension and send chills up my spine. In short, this is definitely for those who love a good scare.

My Rating: *****


  1. i'm guessing i was the only one who dind't see the twist coming. but this movie still rocks!

  2. I could predict the twist from the trailer, but for a movie that is this scary and genuinely frightening I didn't really mind. I give it an A-.

  3. Another top film from Scorsese. The ending is so moving.


Comments are appreciated. More so if they are appropriate.
