I was very skeptical about yet another horror thriller movie like Shutter Island. When I first heard of the name, I thought it could be another one of those ghostly movies by the Thais or the Koreans. When I found out it was starred by Leonardo DiCaprio, I decided to give it a chance and keep an open mind about the show.
Drama is set in 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island. He and his newly appointed partner is assigned to the island to investigate and to locate the missing murderess. What they discovered on the island then is totally mind-boggling.
The two U.S. Marshals are starred by Leonardo DiCarprio and Mark Ruffalo (13 going on 30 and Just Like Heaven). Michelle William plays Delores Chanal, Teddy Daniels’ departed wife who is constantly haunting his thoughts. Ben Kingsley (Guru Tugginmypudha of The Love Guru) plays Dr. John Cawley, the resident doctor and the person who is responsible for the founding of Shutter Island.
Hollywood movie is still Hollywood movie. It tends to be quite predictable at times. 25 minutes into the show, I’ve already figured out the character although the storyline eludes my expectation. The movie has an open ending, it lets you decide all the possible alternative endings but I must say that the director’s ending is quite a cliche.
A must watch… err maybe. Worthy to watch, definitely. I give it a rating of 3.5/5.
