As a general rule of thumb: If "predictable" is all you get out of and can say about a movie, then you probably shouldn't be sharing your opinion on movies. Since you know jackshit. Would anyone ever summarize Citizen Kane as predictable? You could, but it'd also be the dumbest thing ever said about it.

This isn't a twist movie. Scorsese is telling it to you from the very beginning and not trying to hide it. The "twist" isn't the point. The journey to get there is. And the final choice is a great commentary on the character.

It looks like Scorsese had a lot of fun making this movie and I certainly had a lot of fun watching. Dicaprio was fantastic as he almost always is.

One of, if not, Scorsese's best. An unbeatable, multi-layered thriller, with a completely wonderful and believable romantic drama element thrown in for good measure.

Don't take the film on face value; perhaps give it a few views? Whilst the plot may have some issues (it's complexity is both a beauty and a curse), it is the fantastic composition and directing that makes this feel more like entertaining "artwork" than a standard piece of film.

I really loved this one. I had no idea (previously) what it was about when I first saw it. DiCaprio was really good and somehow the story gripped me from the beginning. There was a lot of suspense and I did not see the twists and turns coming, which was nice.

The ending is amazing and it blew me away - and even after this blow there is a scene at the VERY end that keeps you guessing again and leaves room for various interpretations. Great!

EDIT: Saw it again, favorited it, it's just too good!
By the way, the music is great as well and there are some visually impressive dream sequences and powerful symbols throughout the movie.

This movie made ​​me go crazy, excellent story.
Leo Dicaprio totally deserved a nomination for best actor in a leading role, he was excellent.

It was okay. I think I probably would've enjoyed it more if I hadn't already been spoiled for the ending before I watched it.

Uses old tired twists. It doesn't matter if they are "predictable" but what is more important: the plot doesn't challenge the history or status quo but abuses the already deep stigma of mental illnesses.

Excellent moody and creepy Hitchcock like thriller/drama with twists and turns. Based on the excellent book by Dennis Lehane with a top notch cast

Shutter Island is also a prison movie of sorts, so it makes sense to have shotgunned these two back to back, but I really didn't know anything about this picture going in. On the surface of it, it's about a 1950s U.S. marshal who goes to what we might call Arkham Island (in the Batman sense, not the Lovecraft sense) to find an escaped patient, but winds up stumbling on a government conspiracy. In essence, it's Scorsese trying to do Fincher, and it's an awkward fit. Impeccably filmed, great shots and everything, but it's really two movies. The one before the giant twist (which either twists too far or not far enough) is immersive and intriguing. And I like the ramifications of the twist, thinking about how the strangeness of the pre-twist movie can be explained, etc. But I still hate the twist. Maybe the movie should have left us right there, reeling, but it keeps going, over-explains itself, and feels quite limp in the end. There are two movies I might like in Shutter Island, but neither is satisfying when grafted on the other.

loved it. i really wish i went into this not knowing about some sort of twist, that way i wouldn't have looked for it at every corner of the film. regardless this was an impressive film and scorsese can clearly deliver a compelling psychological thriller as opposed to his usual crime drama schtick. if this film has you intrigued in even the slightest, then do not even hesitate.
sidenote: dicaprio continues to impress me as an actor, and i can see why scorsese keeps coming back to him.

I think that's when Dicaprio turned one of my favorites actors. The whole crazy or not thing is very interesting. Brilliant end. Favorite <3

That scene in the apartment, it sends shivers down my spine.

Watch the end credits with your eyes closed and a good pair of headphones and just feel.
