Island rocks

Bonnie and I went to see The Island last night. It was quite enjoyable, though suspension of disbelief is a must. Scarlett Johansson is one of my favourite actresses, and, of course, Ewan McGregor. There's also a good supporting cast with Sean Bean, Djimon Hounsou, and Steve Buscemi. Be prepared for director Michael Bay's Pearl Harbour-esque style, which may or may not ruin the movie for some. There's a lot of slow motion, sweeping overhead, weird angle shots, along with some sappy music. But the acting is good and the story is strong enough to hold everything together. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a no-mental-effort-required evening.

For your information, her physical appearance in no way influenced my appreciation of the film.
