Shutter Island

Interesting psychological thriller, made by Martin Scorsese with Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role. The film is based on the 2003 novel of the same name.

The plot is following: In 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his partner, Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), go to the Ashecliff Hospital for the criminally insane on Shutter Island. They are investigating the disappearance of Rachel Solando, and mysterious things starts happening to them and particularly Teddy Daniels…

For those of us who have seen various psychological thrillers earlier, the climax of this movie isn’t that surprising. Therefore, the climax wasn’t that unexpected. On the other hand, this kind of movies tends to have particular visuals, and Shutter Island also has nice visuals. In addition, the music is also powerful to give the proper experience of the atmosphere in the movie.

Rating: 4/5 of 6
