Shutter Island

I just saw Shutter Island...  I give this movie a 6.5, despite being hopeful and excited based on the trailers.  As you already know, Leo DiCaprio is one of my favorite actors and director Martin Scorsese usually brings out greatness in him.  Together they created The Aviator, which gives me goosebumps to this day and therefore my expectations were high.

The movie, however, lost its momentum and tone on a few occasions throughout, and the tone was not consistent...  I felt sad, scared, annoyed and bored throughout the film.   In my opinion, it was the editing that was lacking and like anyone in this industry will admit... a good edit and score can save any bad movie!  Well the opposite is also true,  a bad edit and mediocre score can ruin even the best stories and performances, and that is what unfortunately happened with Shutter Island.

Don't waste your money, ladies, wait for DVD!

  1. My fiance saw this yesterday and he told me what happened. I feel like I don't have to see it now ;)

  2. Trailer gives it away the twist as well :-\

  3. I knew it! The trailer DOES say it all ... why see the movie if the ending is given away in a 30sec trailer? A good trailer makes me want to spend $12 at the movies. And this - on top of lack editing and scoring - did not have a good trailer.
