eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconThough he loses his grasp on the work as a whole and unwisely lets Shutter Island sail past the tidy two-hour mark it otherwise merited, the movie’s most extreme measures should satisfy any connoisseur of cinematic derangement.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconShutter Island sizzles with so much nerve-frying suspense that it’s hot to the touch.

Tomatometer quote icon It may not rank with Scorsese's best work, but Shutter Island's gleefully unapologetic genre thrills represent the director at his most unrestrained.
