Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas, Casino) directs this exceptional adaption of Dennis Lehane’s novel Shutter Island. Leonardo DiCaprio gives a riveting performance as U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels. Teddy has been paired up with newly assigned partner Detective Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) to investigate the disappearance of Rachel Solando, a murderess who has escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane on a remote island located in Boston Harbour.
Upon arriving the two detectives are forced to surrender their weapons and then are taken to meet the head psychiatrist Dr. John Cawley (Ben Kingsley) who explains how impossible it is for anyone to make it out of the island. The longer the two detectives are on the island the more uneasy Teddy begins to feel as they begin to uncover much more than expected and come to realise that Rachel may not even exist. But what is the real reason they have been assigned to this island? -M.F.

Anyone who likes psychological thrillers this is a must see, it is one of those films you have to watch a few times for everything to fall into place and to notice everything. This is a really enjoyable film that is easily re-watchable. DiCaprio is truly brilliant as he generally always is. Great film and a great blu-ray that you should own.
An Incredible Film once again from the great partnership of Leo and Scorcese. The Contextual aspect is fantastic after watching the feature on the Blu-Ray. Incredibly loyal to the book and probably one of the biggest twists ever! So big that after watching it twice it still leaves you with confusion and doubt. I believe the reason for the lower ratings is simply because of the confusion after watching it and you definately need to watch it a second time at least. Don't pre-judge any characters especially if their actor stereotypically portrays a protagonist. The first film I've rented off LoveFilm that I simply have to buy to watch again and again. The only downside is the misleading of the trailer which I believe portrays it as a horror. However the distributors have gotta get the audience in the Cinemas somehow and it worked! Once again just a fantastic Scorcese filming just about topping Goodfellas.

This film provides a good non-linear plot which sees Leonardo Di Caprio's "hero" character taking on an investigation into dissappearances and strange goings on a the remote shutter island. Is his character seeing things, going mad or is it a big conspiracy? Great directing and screenplay in a style similar to many M Night films.
