About the Movie
From Oscar®-winning director Martin Scorsese, "Shutter Island" is the story of two U.S. marshals, Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), who are summoned to a remote and barren island off the coast of Massachusetts to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a murderess from the island’s fortress-like hospital for the criminally insane.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Umberto Eco wrote, "Two cliches make us laugh but a hundred cliches move us, because we sense dimly that the cliches are talking among themselves, celebrating a reunion." Shutter Island is that reunion, and that shrine.
Fresh: Not since Raging Bull has Mr. Scorsese so brazenly married brutality to beauty. Not since Kundun has one of his films felt so aspirational.
Fresh: What is real? What is delusion? What is montrous? What is decent? Shutter Island may not shatter the heart but these are gnawing achievements for a movie about madness and paranoia.
Rotten: Martin Scorsese's elephantine exercise in B-movie badness.
One Of The Greatest Thrillers I've Seen In A Long Time...
To be honest, going in to this i thought it wasn't gonna be any good, but quarter in to it I realized this was something different. Shutter Island had blown me away with its fantastic characters, an amazing story, a deep meaning and thought to thoses that are really insane. It truly deserves a 5 out 5, it's worth the buy and it's an amazing rental, TRUST ME, ITS ONE OF THOSE movies that makes you think for awhile after it ends.
Originally I was super excited about this movie. Then I saw rotten tomatoes review... You know what? What the hell do they know!! This is one of the most perfect movies of all time, if I could make my perfect movie it would be this. It's full if symbolism and foreshadowing.. Buy this movie you wont regret it
I thought at first it would be those cliché movies that you forshadow the end too well.... But no. This movie is perfect. The actors are AMAZING. Everything's great. Go watch it!!
