The Island: Movie Review

Stars: Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johansson, Djimon Hounsou, Sean Bean, Steve Buscemi
Directed By: Michael Bay

I found this movie very entertaining. It won’t win any Oscars, but it was a good summer action flick. The story moved along well and the action sequences were fun too, although some of them were a little over the top. Some of the stunts didn’t seem to be in the realm of even action movie possibilities.

I think my favorite scene in the movie was when Lincoln Six-Echo (McGregor) saw a motorcycle speed by and says “I don’t know what that was, but I want one”. McGregor is a big fan of motorcycling so this was a funny kinda-inside joke.

The performances were good enough for an action movie, and as usual Steve Buscemi was brilliant and funny.

Grab some popcorn and have some fun.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
