Shutter Island (Edited)

3 1/2 stars

Someone is missing.

It's 1954, and up-and-coming U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Boston's Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital. He's been pushing for an assignment on the island for personal reasons, but before long he wonders whether he hasn't been brought there as part of a twisted plot by hospital doctors whose radical treatments range from unethical to illegal to downright sinister. Teddy's shrewd investigating skills soon provide a promising lead, but the hospital refuses him access to records he suspects would break the case wide open. As a hurricane cuts off communication with the mainland, more dangerous criminals "escape" in the confusion, and the puzzling, improbable clues multiply, Teddy begins to doubt everything - his memory, his partner, even his own sanity.

Megan's Movie Review:
This movie was really good. I love mystery/suspenseful movies that keep you entertained and trying to figure out what the heck is going on. To be honest though, it wasn't scary for me. I wonder if it is because of the edited version.. So I kind of wish I could've seen the real version, but oh well. Leonardo DiCaprio is an amazing actor. He can play so many different roles and I just love him! This edited version was great though. It cut out all the swearing and I'm sure it cut out more, but I've never seen the original version, so I can't tell you what it exactly cut out. Haha. It does have a twist at the end which I actually had predicted. I don't want to spoil anything so I won't say anymore. Good movie though, I really liked the way it ended. "Which would be worse, to live as a monster, or to die as a good man?"

Thoughts on this thriller?!

Did you think that he went back to being crazy or pretended to be crazy at the end?
