Caught a preview screening of Michael Bay’s The Island, a Logan’s Run redux with Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson. I was just chatting about it with a friend and figured I’d offer an iChat movie review™. We’ll see how this works out.
we saw The Island tonight.
Scarlett is purty
ewan is great, because he’s ewan
Doctor: “This won’t hurt a bit”
Ewan: “It hurts!”
Dr: “No it doesn’t.”
Ewan: “Yes it does!!”
actually lots of funny parts, but mostly it’s a chase movie.
But OH the product placements. EVERYWHERE. And who would have guessed that the logos for Xbox, MSN, Cisco, etc. etc. etc. are still exactly the same 50 years into the future?
Very much a Michael Bay jobber. But he’s replaced fiery explosions with lots of flying stuff… car pieces, helicopter pieces, thousands of little pieces flying all over the screen (which I liked, actually)
oh, and Djimon Hounsou sweats better than any man on camera
and does it without hardly moving.
Overall, fine escapist summer movie, especially better that I saw it for free.
