Oh wow, some serious social commentary, oh wait, it just blew up...

So yah, we went to see The Island tonight.

I actually went into the movie blind. I didn't know anything about the movie other then Ewan McGregor was in it.

I have to say, I actually really liked it. Don't worry, no spoilers in this post.

Like I said in the title, I was really impressed with the movie in that it was starting to talk about some serious social commentary about the morality of the technology that's coming to pass...

But then it exploded. LOL. Yah, there were lots and lots and lots of explosions. :)

There's actually a lot to like about the movie. I swear the first 30 min or so was a visual feast. Everything about the complex, the people, the costumes were just so cool to look at.

There was a half decent plot and lots and lots of cool explosions. LOL.

Oh, dnldreams was so right about the product placements. Wow... subtly is not in their vocabulary in this respect. But that was my only big niggle about the movie.

Anyway, if you're looking for a pretty good action movie with lots of pretty things to look at. The set and costume designs, the cinematography and the explosions.

Oh yah, the people were just pure eye candy, I mean come on, Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johansson, Djimon Hounsou and of course Sean Bean, that one's for you twjudy. ;-)

A good popcorn movie, but I'm definitly picking this one up on DVD when it's out. :)
