Shutter Island… movie review





Shutter Island is a psychological thriller that walks the line of predictability, yet keeps the audience’s interest. The story follows a U.S. Marshall played by Leonardo DiCaprio, who arrives at an insane asylum to investigate the disappearance of a patient. Full of twists and turns, the plot is sharp with hooking elements such as human experimentation and unorthodox use of sleeping medication that make it quite convincing.

The plot is well conceived dropping clues along the way that drive it to a suspenseful finish. Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas & Gangs of New York) directs the thriller to a tee bringing forth subtle details with each clue presented while making sure the story is not revealed until the climax. Produced by Paramount Pictures, Shutter Island satisfies from start to finish and is definitely worth two hours you’ll spend watching it.
