    "Shutter Island is a movie directed by Martin Scorsese and stars Leonardo Dicaprio. Dicaprio goes to an asylum on Shutter Island to do an investigation and ends up getting drugged and almost doesn't escape. It is an okay movie but as someone who loves detective movies and stories, I could probably put together a list of at least 100 that I like better than this. It isn't even in the same league as the Sherlock Holmes movies or the Alex Cross movies. To say this fits the topic would be a real stretch in my opinion."

    "The build-up for this movie was amazing. Everything was drenched in a palpable atmosphere. It will make you think thatv it will arrive at a spectacular conclusion. But when the twist did arrive, I was like - meh. Not Martin Scorsese's best work (Taxi Driver still remains on top IMO) but Shutter Island is undeniably goergeous."

    "Leonardo DiCaprio is back at it again with another movie. This one is rated 4.5 stars on the page. I feel the concept of the movie being blu-ray is better than DVD, however it could be better to be available in both options. There is no description of the film, but in all it looks to be great."

    "We are very lucky nowadays that we have more accommodating mental facilities that have a good understanding of mentally ill people. Shutter island shows how hard it is to be "crazy" back in the days. I was actually feeling scared of Leo's character here throughout the whole movie."
