Shutter Island

So I am not gonna lie, I have been looking forward to this movie since last October when it was originally going to be released. So that puts alot of pressure on this movie to be amazing…and finally this afternoon Matt and I got to watch this 2 hour and 30min mystery. This is hard because like many great movies I can not say much without giving anything away. The “jest” in a nutshell is Leo’s character is a Marshall and he is sent to this Mental hospital for the criminally insane that is located on a creepy island because a patient has disappeared. A big portion of this movie is flashbacks and hallucinations which can be a tad confusing and you may find yourself thinking what in the world does that have to do with anything…ah, but it will. The first 1 1/2 hours I won’t lie is slow and I was a tad worried that this would not live up to it’s bill but the last 30minutes of this movie makes everything so clear and ties it together in a nice ribbon for you. The whole movie will have you thinking about a million possible scenarios but the truth? Will be nothing what it seems. This was great and I was more than pleased!!!
For all you wanting to know about the R-rating… had some blood, cursing and oddly a random scene of male nudity but to be completely honest it was more of a PG-13 ish R, if that makes any sense at all.
Over all this was great and I look forward to watching this again to see if I can catch things I did not see the first time!!!
