Movie Review: Shutter Island

Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island (B+) is the master director making a popcorn movie, like he did with Cape Fear. Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo go to an island asylum ostensibly to solve a crime, but they may soon find themselves prisoners of the mysterious place. This is great escapist entertainment with surprises at every corner.

I've reviewed films for more than 20 years. Current movie reviews of new theatrical releases and direct-to-video or streaming films are added weekly to the Silver Screen Capture movie news site. Many capsule critiques originally appeared in expanded form in my syndicated Lights Camera Reaction column.
