Chicago Sun-Times - 02/17/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Scorsese the craftsman chips away at reality piece by piece....There are thrilling visuals in SHUTTER ISLAND..."
Box Office - 02/17/2010
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]s a period piece set in the mid 1950s, a time of major shifts in the treatment and diagnosis of mental illness, the film situates itself in the realities of the era's cinema..."
USA Today - 02/19/2010
"It's technically masterful, as only a film by visionary director Martin Scorsese can be....The production design by Dante Ferretti is impeccable."
A.V. Club - 02/18/2010
"[The story] morphs into full-on psychological horror....Scorsese renders his hero's nightmares in vivid Technicolor flashbacks and dream sequences that insistently bleed into reality..." -- Grade: A-
Variety - 02/13/2010
"Kingsley and von Sydow bring their smooth confidence to bear on their roles as institution big shots, while Jackie Earle Haley and Patricia Clarkson score in their individual big scenes."
Wall Street Journal - 02/19/2010
"SHUTTER ISLAND is the cinematic equivalent of a Joseph Cornell box, a world of appropriated ingredients given new meaning through their combination and juxtaposition."
Los Angeles Times - 02/19/2010
"In SHUTTER ISLAND, director Martin Scorsese has created a divinely dark and devious brain tease of a movie in the best noir tradition..."
Hollywood Reporter - 02/13/2010
"SHUTTER ISLAND is a remarkable high-wire act, performed without a net and exploiting all the accumulated skills of a consummate artist. It dazzles and provokes."
Movieline - 02/17/2010
"A post-traumatic allegory whose potency is only deepened by it final turn of the screw, SHUTTER ISLAND is most successful in manifesting physically the condition of emotional chaos and mental fracture."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/26/2010
"The movie does have a pay-off....And it works, shiveringly well." -- Grade: B
Rolling Stone - 02/18/2010
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "DiCaprio, in his most haunting and emotionally complex performance yet, is the vessel Scorsese uses to lead us through the film's labyrinth."
Total Film - 02/12/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n impeccably assembled genre thriller from Martin Scorsese that lets the Oscar-winning filmmaker pay painstaking homage to the Hollywood film noirs of the '40s and '50s."
Empire - 03/19/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "SHUTTER ISLAND offers sumptuous, enthralling, shivery gothic filmmaking with a hardboiled heart and a sly line in asylum humour."
Premiere - 06/07/2010
3 stars out of 4 -- "A taut and stylish thriller with a twist ending that might surprise some....Martin Scorsese takes time away from crafting epics to make this fun and spooky thriller in the vein of CAPE FEAR..."
