Shutter Island

Critics Consensus

It may not rank with Scorsese's best work, but Shutter Island's gleefully unapologetic genre thrills represent the director at his most unrestrained.

As the investigation deepens, Teddy realizes he will have to confront his own dark fears if he hopes to make it off the island alive.

    A interesting but lacking psychological horror. Another good performance from DiCaprio with a solid supporting cast. Ben Kingsley does a less intense "Sexy Best" type part efficiently. Competent direction from Scorsese.

    Though I've already known the ending long before I went to see this, Shutter Island still managed to thrill, entertain, and leave an impact.

    A thrilling and eerie film that consists of a solid and grand twist. Shutter Island is a Martin Scorsese attempt in the realm of suspense and thrillers that seems to pay off in an obscure way. The strength-filled cast and vintage direction ultimately helps this picture from the minor faults it possessed. 4/5

    Visually beautiful, wonderfully acted, and relentlessly gripping, Shutter Island is a brilliantly unrestrained psychological thriller that keeps its audience riveted throughout its entire duration.
