Films with futuristic themes have always entertained me. 2001, Symone, I-Robot and now The Island. This action thriller revolves around a company who creates clones for wealthy folks who want body parts available when they face life threatening circumstances. Unforeseen glitches emerge, and chaos ensues. The dialogue was excellent, some snappy one liners broke the tension from time to time. Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johanson, Steve Buschemi and Sean Bean give great performances. The chase scenes, special effects and cinematography are outstanding, though a little long (Michael Bay likes to put a lot on the screen). The summer action film is alive and well!!
