THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE.
The year is 2019 and Earth is a contaminated place; few have survived the disease and they’re hoping to get to The Island, a paradise… but does it really exist? The screenwriters warn against cloning humans and a future society where cameras watch every move we make. The script is relevant, but director Michael Bay is more interested in high-octane action. You get your highway chases where cars fly in every direction, and slo-mo images of macho men stepping out of choppers. Often fun to watch, but the movie is too hollow and drawn-out.
2005-U.S. 136 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Michael Bay. Cast: Ewan McGregor (Lincoln Six Echo), Scarlett Johansson (Jordan Two Delta), Djimon Hounsou (Albert Laurent), Sean Bean, Steve Buscemi, Michael Clarke Duncan.
