The Island Reviews
Second half is Michael Bay's ridiculous overwhelming action flick.
It won't be a perfect movie, for a good part it's not even a good movie, but I think we must appreciate this little gem set between Bad Boys and Transormers. I really enjoyed the sci-fi elements and the ethical questions offered by the movie.
That being said, the movie does move from a captivating story to a "switch-off-your-brain" car chase/shootout. During my first view I was puzzled in front of this sudden change in contents. By the end of the movie, I must admit I was pretty much waiting for Sean Bean to die and wrap things up.
Despite the poor choices in the screenplay department, the acting was pretty good. Bravo to Ewan McGregor for all the scenes with his sponsor! Same goes for Sean Bean, always a reliable pick.
