I'm not a Critic, just a brown guy that loves movies!

Shutter Island- Not bad, but turn down the dramatic music!

Shutter Island was slightly better than i thought it would be..but i didnt love it.  Im usually not the biggest fan of psychological thrillers that dont have lots of action or real supernatural stuff goin on.   But Shutter Island was interesting though just not my favorite movie.   There was one big thing i didnt like about it..the music was way overdone.

There are opening scenes and others throughout the movie…where extremely LOUD over DRAMATIC music was playing as if something was about to happen..but nothing did.  Im a big fan of the right soundtracks to trailers, movies..and specific scenes..and wow it was overtly annoying how many times this dramatic music was not only playing..but at a crazy volume level.

Also there is a firing line scene were a bunch of people are shot..and one of the idiot extras in that scene can clearly be seen looking up and smiling when he was shot down…i mean..how hard is it for an editor to see that? i caught it immediately …those kinds of little things annoy me.

    I didn’t love it either, but I didn’t hate it. It was definitely disturbing at times! My conclusion from it: Leonardo DiCaprio is a great actor. You for sure don’t get caught up by the music, I think I get suckered in though. haha. Overall I’m glad I saw it!
