The Island August 14, 2006

Posted by Shujath in English, Movies, Reviews.

Michael Bay’s movies have a very simple plot….things blowing up…and then some more things blowing up….and then – you guessed it right some more explosions! But you know what…in last year’s The Island (which btw is his first bonafide flop) Bay tried to tell a story…and that too a sci-fi one. But somewhere in the middle he gave up and went back to back to what he does best – blowing up stuff.

If you have enjoyed his previous flicks like the Bad Boys series, Rock, Armageddon and Pearl Harbor, you can sit through this too….but as I said before the action comes in much later in the movie and that is what I found a tad disappointing. Plus leading man Evan McGregor doesn’t fit the action image well….Scarlett Johannson is eye-candy as always. As I mentioned, the Island was the biggest debacle of 2005.

Nevertheless, the good news is that Bay seems to have learnt his lesson and is going back to his roots for his next mega-venture Transformers (You can catch the first teaser on the net) which is co-produced by Spielberg.
