    Its always the same thing for Michael Bay; the picture's big, but the result is small. "The Island" is no better.

    The Island is a well acted but plain action picture, that never seems to get anywhere. Once again, Michael Bay has failed to impress me, although it is good compared to his other films. Full Review »

    The island is an excellent science fiction thriller with amazing special effects and an ingenious plot.
    The acting is decent from every actor
    and the movie's breakneck pace never ratchets down. Full Review »
