The Island (2005) – IMDb


The Island (2005) – IMDb.

“THE ISLAND”~What a Ride. I loved this Film. It had the feel of “Total Recall“. Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson were great together. Scarlett was just gorgeous in this movie. Djimon Hounsou‘s character of the Navy Seal mercenary type is very interesting. Djimon is the Blade Runner of this movie, able to be ruthless, but in the end compassionate, this is just one of the little gems in this movie that made me really enjoy it. Steve Buscemi, what can you say, Steve Buscemi is Steve Buscemi, Never a bad performance, Ever. The only complaint I have with the movie is the very final scene, Ewan and Scarlett on the boat. I felt that there should have been some close ups of the couple finally able to get away, it left me with sort of an empty feeling. The entire movie was building up to that final scene, and to give it such a short shrift, well it just did not make any sense. But I enjoyed the rest of the movie so much that I am prepared to overlook the short comings of the last scene. I give it 5 ***** Stars.
