Shutter Island Reviews

Scorsese keeps the tension at a pitch of near-constant hysteria. Yet when the solution to the mystery is finally revealed, you're left with a sense of disappointment

Story quibbling aside, Shutter Island is high on atmosphere, in large part due to the visuals, and the collaboration between Scorsese and (Cinematographer) Robert Richardson actually feels like the two men having a blast with their craft.

... Shutter Island, the fourth collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio, is the best work they have done together.

It's a strong and at times gripping offering from Hollywood's cosiest A-list filmmaker/star pairing.

Every detail of the production design is on point for maximum dread and psychic confusion.

As hard as Shutter Island works to convince you that is a dumb but flashy thriller when it is actually a fairly smart one, it may well be as hollow as any magic trick.

Scorsese and DiCaprio, in their fourth film together, again create an intense, provocative film-going experience, where the ride, accommodations, and destination are all first class.

Not the masterpiece I was hoping for...

Fortunately, the music chosen to underscore the ever-increasing sense of unease and mystery (artfully selected by Robbie Robertson) is a constant pleasure.

Shutter Island, is even less 'important' than The Departed. But Scorsese is clearly enjoying himself with this old-school throwback to thrillers past. And it's hard not to revel in it with him.

When the big reveal hits, it's the first big yawn of the film, and the tension dies a sudden death as we wait impatiently for the film to tie up all of its loose ends.

Shutter Island, after an involving and entertaining beginning, settles for a victory by judges' decision rather than a final knockout.

...a creepy psychological thriller...short on psychology, characterization, suspense, tension, or thrills.

A basically just kidding Boston offshore yarn featuring fleeing assorted lost and found psychos, born again Nazis, and Red Scare gulag rehab for unrepentant communists on the loose that, well, doesn't amount to a hill of baked beans.

Por momentos excesiva y algo decepcionante, resulta de todos modos un inquietante ejercicio sobre la locura servido con gran habilidad por Martin Scorsese.

As psychological horror thrillers go, it might be flawed, but it's a technically masterful piece of work.

Shutter Island is second-tier Scorsese, but not one of his misfires. It does the gothic horror genre proud, but fails to transcend it.
