Shutter Island 2010 6 out of 10
Shutter Island had a really interesting plot. A movie that was a homage to Hitchcock and some Twilight Zone episodes or horror movies like Carnival of Souls. Leonardo DiCaprio was great in the film as the main character trying to solve a mystery on an Island for the insane. His acting was top notch as usual. The movie itself just fell a little flat for me. I figured it out a little too early in the film and as a result the movie seemed a little slow to me, waiting for what I knew was true to be revealed. It was still a good film --just not as good and it was nice to see Martin Scorese do something a little different for a change. I'm sure the movie would have been a little more interesting if the twists weren't too obvious. I love movies with twists like those revealed in sci-fi movie Dark City or The Spanish Prisioner. Shutter Island just was too easy to figure out I guess.
