I'm kind of torn on this one. On one hand, I was angry about the ultimate plot direction, but that last line makes it almost kind of brilliant. I had mixed feelings on DiCaprio's performance, but he isn't awful here, just a few awkward line deliveries. The suspense is strong, though, and the atmosphere intense from the beginning. A revisit might make me like it more, but who knows?

Interested but not the best movie!

This film tried really hard to be great - and it has a few moments - but it, overall, disappoints.

Bummer, 137 minutes too long. I am not a Scorsese fan. Certainly did not help DiCaprio's career. Lots of fast forwards did not help.

Took the bait and watched this on Netflix before it was removed. Watched this in the cinema back in March 2010 when it was playing. After re-watching this again, it's almost felt like a new movie, but its way too convoluted and disturbing and was surprised to find myself watching this again and getting hooked into the story. Ben Kingsley's portrayal of Dr. John Cawley was totally spell-binding. The theme of the movie is very interesting. After all, you just never know what your government is doing behind closed doors.

This one felt like a waste of time to me. I wasn't impressed.

Movie was great, but for many confusing....so, I recommend reading the book first, and then watching the movie. Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane and you are not going to miss a thing!

Just read all the other comments left here, and they seem to run from absolutely dreadful to fantastic! Actually, this is not my usual kind of movie, but I enjoyed it more than I thought I would ... and the ending DID surprise me! I didn't see it coming at all - maybe because I'm not used to watching suspense. Anyway, it's got it's faults but definitely worth watching.
