The Island

TheislandmovieI enjoyed The Island, I liked how the story flowed and fit together; a lot of times in a movie of this type they skip past that whole “plot-thing”. What’s really going on with these characters is akin to finding out the you live in The Matrix. The questions they asked and they way they monitor everyones health and diet were interesting. Now, it was a chase movie so of course those always gets a little unbelievable as they are dodging, jumping, falling etc. A lot gets explained as the movie goes on but there are always a few weird things that don’t get explained (like the weird guns that they use). Ewan and Scarlett played an interesting pair that seem to get a handle on the impossible a little too quickly and Steve Buscemi was great as always (why does he so often play characters with interesting sexual proclivities?). I’ve seen more and more previews give away too much of the movie so if you’ve decided you’re going to see it, then stop watching the previews (opens nationwide on July 22nd).

On a side note the Arizona scenery was beautiful. And during many of the scenes I kept thinking how much Scarlett Johansson looked liked Jessica Alba.

Definitely some paid product placement in this movie. I think it would be so much more effective if they just casually showed the product verses pausing the camera on it too long…
