I cab't rate the movie in all fairness as I turned it off half way through...enough said?
I really enjoyed this movie, despite not being as "scary" as advertised. Its beautifulyl shot and the acting is perfect. it gives off a creepy vibe that stays throughout the entire film. I found the ending predictable, but enjoyed it nonetheless.
Such an awesome movie, great twist in the plot lots of action definately one of my favorites
The movie was a bit boring, it took too long to climax. I was left confused in the end, i still cant figure what was real from what wasnt. A complete waste of 2 hrs
totally caught me off guard recommended
Once again Leonardo DiCaprio does not disappoint. I was both intrigued and confused by this story. DiCaprio does a wonderful job really taking the viewer into this character. I emphathized with him when he lost his children to a wife that had gone mad. However, I felt annoyed with him when he kept trying to figure out why there was a conspiracy against him. DiCaprio did an amazing job acting out a mental illness that was caused by great sadness, sorrow and loss.
excellent movie. Leonardo acted amazing as did everyone else. it clearly says thriller, so anyone who thought it was horror needs to be more careful. wasn't as scary as i thought it would be, but it was better this way. it wasn't predictable and whoever didn't get the ending needs to rethink the whole movie and you will get it.one of the best of 2010 everything was explained, so probably people who don't get it also didn't pay close attention maybe oscar
Leo is great as always but i was dissapointed..not what i expected.
Amazing movie, unexpected turn
i found it boring by half way, and had a predictable ending. MEH Leo, MEH!!
I liked this movie - the style, the story, the mucis, all meshed together pretty well.
disappointing. another comment had it right - it was marketed as a horror movie, but it's not. the ending wasn't a big surprise, i kept waiting for the BIG SECRET that never comes.
sat through the movie, wondering. Why did I waste my time coming to see this.
pretty good thriller. A good ending and beginiing. The middle dragged a bit. Overall, pretty good movie.
Wonderful movie. It was predictable but still managed to be wholly enjoyable. The marketing on the movie was a bit asanine because it was portrayed as a horror movie. They should have presented it as the psychological thriller that it is. I think that dissapointed a lot of movie goers.
I loved it. The opening scenes had you feeling as though you were on the boat arriving at the island. The movie had twists and turns until the very last line of the movie. If you didn't like it, you likely didn't get it.
It was almost predictable, just by the dreams his character was having. Excellent plot and the remarks in the ending really makes you think.
Just saw Shutter Island I got to say it's the best movie of 2010
The storey line was great, but the performance of it all was awful. Poor acting except for a couple of the patients. The acting didn't hold you or make it believeable, except at the end with the twist. Had me thinking about it for a while, but was honestly ready to leave the movie after the first 20 mins of it.... Maybe worth seeing on video, but even then, you could probably find something better to do with your time...
Best movie in a long time. If you didn't like it... you didn't get it. As simple as that.
This movie was very good the acting by all was good. I loved Ben Kingsley and Leonardo Di Caprio. They were excellent. I've always been a fan of Max von Sydow and wanted to see more of him. The story takes a while to explain itself and when it finally does it wasn't disappointing but rather sad and emotionally gripping. A very worthy experience. MOVIE LOVER
Very Good indeed and well worth seeing Those that have the opinion of a predictive ending are screwed in the head Leonardo played the part to a T as all the actors
Do not even waste your time on this movie!!!!!!!
I actually tried to get a refund.
Superb plot, with many twists and jogs. DiCaprio continues to be an outstanding character actor. If you missed the last line of the movie or didnt get it,then have another look. The whole story is summed up at that point, fittingly so. A message for the sane!
gorgeous,a must see movie,I have to say anyone who don't like the movie because they don't understand it
WOW!!!!! GREAT MOVIE!!!!!! I loved it!! It's not a horror.. It twists with your mind.. EXCELLENT twist!!
Well acted movie with good story line. Plot gives the viewer lots to think about, even after the ending.
4 all who said this movie was predictable..how the cuss was this movie freaking predictable!? AMAZING MOVIE, A MUST SEE FILM
The concept was cool, but the way that the movie was portrayed was not well-established and done poorly. The ending was not original, but intense, it could have been exhibited in a creative and probably a manipulative way... I expected much more from this movie, but was disappointed in the end.
Very well done. I was honestly not excited to go to this movie, but it was very good.
I hate it when I get lured into watching a movie because I like the actor, and then it truly sucks!
I read the book before seeing the movie..not a good idea as it gives away the ending. It stuck with the book & I could quote the actors lines. Not interesting.
wow the trailer is very misleading, this movie is not even rental material. Save your money and don't waist your time....
slept during the movie,,,ending was stupid,,,but the twist however, was shocking. other than that,,,shit movie.
i love leanardo decaprio!!!!!!!
5 stars. this movie was awesome. Not at all like the previews portray; was definately a movie that you thought about for a long time.
Kick @$$ movie... Everything about it makes me want to see it again.
The sound track was horrible, it was way too loud. There was no scare or thrill. The begining was soo cheesy, and the action did not start until alot later in the movie. If i had rented this movie and watched it at home i would probably have fell asleep through it, thats how long it took to get good. However, I like the ending, but they could have made it alot more thrilling.! =)
This was a really good film. Leo DeCaprio was surprisingly good - definitely an under-rated actor. Totally worth going to see!! Not a horror movie like it seemed, but suspenseful and cleverly done.
I liked this film. while it was a bit too long, and somewhat predictable, I thought the acting, and sotry was good to keep you interested. I hate to admit it, but Di Caprio has become one of our finerst actors. THe movie has some twists and turns, and you'll bee thinking about long after the closing credits, which is a compliment to any film. Not as scary as the ads seem to suggest, but thrilling nonetheless. G.
I really liked this movie. It was interesting, innovative and surprising. If you enjoy psychological thrillers then I think you will like this movie. It portrays a very interesting look into the minds and points of view of people with mental illness, and a very insightful and creative idea about their concept of reality. Although Leonardo Dicaprio is not a master of accents (also demonstrated by some of his other movies) I thought his acting was very good and he did well in his part. Great movie and defiantly worth seeing. 4.5 out of five stars for me.
Excellent. Go see this movie!
Very good movie, it was thrilling, and shocking, very well made. lots of suspense and it keeps you on the edge of your seat! very twisted also, loved it!
It really should have been shown back in Oct 2nd 2009 to catch the Oscar event, cuz the movie definitely deserves a nomination!
excelent excelent film. everything about it was well done: acting, score, script, suspense, and impending sense of doom and mounting confusion. recomended to anyone who wants to see a solidly good film and story, which are hard to come by nowadays. :)
A real mind thinker... Although some scenes were dragged out, and there was a lot of confusing dream sequences/flashback...Overall, it was good 3 stars
it was an awesome movie.
