Chris' Review of Shutter Island

    Shutter Island (2010)

    I can't say I didn't see the big twist as at least a possibility pretty early on in the film. Having said that, just because it is slightly predictable doesn't mean that Ben Kingsley isn't an absolute joy to watch, or that Leo doesn't give it his best shot (which is pretty good as far as shots go), or that Scorsese doesn't deliver a hell of a beautiful genre film. I will say that shortening certain scenes given how the movie ends would have made it feel like less of a cheat, as well as made it move a bit faster. (How was that, Tara?)
