      The movie shutter island takes place in the Boston area in 1954 on a remote island. Teddy Daniels is the main character, a U. S.

      Marshal who has been assigned to find a missing inmate at a hospital for the criminally insane along with his new partner. A woman named Rachel drowned her three children, sat them at the table and ate a meal with them before the police arrived and she has recently escaped from the hospital.

      After a short stay on the island, Rachel shows up but Teddy is convinced that there is a conspiracy going on and is determined to solve it. Teddy suffers from migranes and starts to have visions.

      His wife died in a fire and she is talking to him throughout the movie. Her killer, the man who set the fire that killed her may be on the island and Teddy is determined to find him.

      The plot goes back and forth, if he finds him, will he kill him or not? Is there a prisoner on the island that the staff is lying about and are there cruel surgeries being done on the patients? Teddy will not be stopped and he goes running all over the island to find out what is going on. Teddy’s partner falls of the cliff when they are on a steep slope, but then ...

      • Teddy cannot find him.

        This part confused me because it is when Teddy is going downhill mentally and it is not clear if he is seeing things or not, then he meets the real Rachel who tells him he needs to get off the island and that he has been drugged by the staff. Eventually we learn Teddy did not come to the island with a partner which I predicted but I did not see the ending coming.

        Teddy’s wife did not die in a fire. She was mentally unstable and she drowned their children and he killed her which is when he went insane and was put in the hospital he has been

        investigating but he has been out of touch with reality so the staff let him roleplay to get him to snap out of it and there was never a missing woman, the whole thing was him coming off of the medication he was on and having delusions and fantasy.

        This was a really shocking ending. The film makers did a great job with not giving the ending away.

        All along they fed us the viewer information like Teddy’s memories of liberating a concentration camp and killing the German’s that have nothing to do with the ending. I really enjoyed this movie.

        It was dark and full of suspense and action. I recommend it to others.
