The Island

Anyone else seen this? I'm in a small minority, but I really loved this movie. I went in expecting a typical summer action movie, and came out just raving about it.

First, I like when a movie can surprise me, and this one did, by making me question things. The whole cloning issue is a very thorny one, and the movie raises some important questions about it. Second, I love Ewan McGregor to death, and he totally impressed me here. His scenes in the second half of the movie are amazing. And third, that car chase was pretty kickass.

All in all, I give it a big

Don't care to see it, but Scarlett is absolutely in it.

sorry, miss becky. i have to disagree with you here. this movie was over-the-top and overdone. someone needs to forcibly stop michael bay from ever making movies again.

the parts i liked best were when there were 2 ewan mcgregors.

I'm straight but 2 Ewans is worthy.

The man is so very cool.

I liked it all right--I was disappointed at how it degenerated into huge action sequences, as the first half was quite creepy and promising.

It's too bad they blew the clone storyline in the ad campaign, because if you hadn't known, it would have been much more gruesome and thrilling. As it was, there wasn't a whole lot of suspense.

But I thought Ewan McGregor was just so charming in it...and Sean Bean's not bad either.

I know, I loved his chirpy innocence...I mean, it was cheesy, but Ewan just made it so darn sweet. "I found a bug! A flying bug!!"

I really enjoyed the film!

Ewan!!!

yeah, it went into action mode in the second half but it's a summer movie and well the first half was excellent.

I just saw a poster for a movie with Ewan and Naomi Watts called STAY!
