The Island * * *

Michael Bay is one of my favorite directors. After being tired of doing Bruckheimer army movies, he has started trying other things: Thriller, in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Sci-Fi, in The Island. And the new Transformers movie is coming in next.

The movie is good and great fun, never lets you bored, yet it's not anything memorable. Scarlett Johansson never looked any better than this, and the sight of 2090 LA is so much fun. I like how they created a world not-so-different from 2005, which I think is more realistic. Their biggest flaw is that they let too much of the story to the public before the release of the movie.
