I hated this movie! Can't believe we even let it keep playing
past the "10 minute test", I think we were just too tired from
a hard day's work to get up and put a new movie in. Just terrible.

I saw this in the theater and my friend fell asleep and snored in my ear. I couldn't wait till it ended but didn't say anything in case my daughter was enjoying it. Come to find out my daughter tolerated it as a good (36 year old) kid will do while on a girls night out at a expensive movie should. A TOTAL WASTE!!!

I've been wanting to watch this movie for quite a while now. However, I don't believe it lived up to my expectations. I remember when it first came out in theatres I was hearing good reviews left and right. I checked up on what people had to say about it before putting it in the DVD player and discovered that it seemed to be mostly mixed thoughts now.
It was very slow in the beginning and took at least 45 minutes to get interesting. Since most had been revealed an hour later, it made the movie feel too drawn out. Something that slightly bothered me was the camera. The way they had it moving and the flow between scenes stuck out a lot to me for about the first half hour, but it either got better, or I just got used to it since I didn't even notice it after then.
The end is actually my favorite part of the movie, especially the last few lines said. That alone was worth watching it.
Shutter Island could have been an amazing movie, but the things mentioned above took more away from the experience than it should of. Overall it's still decent though. I'd recommend it to anyone who is a fan of some suspense and movies that set up the story before getting into the main dish.
