Movie Review: Shutter Island (2010)

I enjoyed the book but this film isn't as good. It is 1954 and US Marshals Teddy (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck (Mark Ruffalo of ‘The Avengers’) arrive at an island loony bin in their baggy ill fitting suits. They are there to find an escaped patient while an overwrought score blares.

The doctors are creepy, the nurses are unhelpful, the patients are wary and Teddy has visions of his dead wife. There is endless rain and Teddy confides his fears that Shutter Island is being used for evil mind control experiments and that he was lured here. This was okay and leads to an obvious revelation.

Best Lines:
Most people don’t kill their husbands with an axe.”

“Valid fears are paranoia.”
