      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A clone of THX 1183, Coma, and Logan's Run, The Island is another loud and bombastic Michael Bay movie where explosions and chases matter more than characters, dialogue, or plot.

      Olly Richards Empire Magazine Like its slack-jawed clones, The Island is full of energy and incredibly pretty but burdened with only the minimum of smarts. Rated: 3/5 Jan 7, 2006 Full Review Nathan Rabin AV Club As usual, Bay stages the action at a breakneck pace that's never frenetic enough to obscure his film's plot holes and logical lapses. Sep 26, 2005 Full Review Nev Pierce BBC.com [T]here's plenty to enjoy in the more intimate, character-based moments, if you can cope with the relentlessly overblown action that surrounds them. Rated: 3/5 Aug 9, 2005 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) So-so sci-fi that will effortlessly chew up two and a half hours on your life if you feel like dropping your guard (and expectations). Rated: 2.5/5 Jun 2, 2020 Full Review Kathi Maio The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction The Island was not a particularly good movie. In fact, it is a perfect case study of everything that is overblown (as in, blown-up) and emotionally empty about so many Hollywood films. Mar 6, 2020 Full Review James Mottram The List Two movies rolled into one, the dumb one wins hands down. Rated: 2/5 Apr 25, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Terrence V It would make a halfway tolerable 45 minute movie if they cut the frequent, nonsensical, and nauseating chase scenes. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review Parker D The island was directed by legendary action meastro Michael bay and stars swan mcgreegor and scarlet Johansson in a thoughtful sci fi action film that combines subtle drama with high quality action chases and the blend togeather good the first half starts out as a thoughtful sci fi like minority report and stays that way even when the action comes later it still serves purpose to the story and has dramatic tension to it it’s not excessive and the action is exhilarating it was fast moving and bay managed to make it smooth and not too loud so it doesn’t give a head ache, clearly this saying Michael bay is not known for films having story and charachter clearly have not seen all his films the island does have a cohesive plot and charachters to care about the island is probably is fourth best film and is just as imaginative and intelligent a sci fi film as minority report it’s that great everyone must see it 9.5/10 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/28/24 Full Review Russell S One of the best movies of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review Carson P The island is anothe Michael bay film that attempts to be thought provoking, imaginative and having a well written story with engaging and interesting charachters I loved the interactions and performances of Johansson and mcGregor and bay does a great job directing the film with not having just explosions but a compelling story and a sense of thought in telling a message of how ones don't want to be fooled into being sent somewhere they claim to be paradise but isn't really this attempt for bay to make an interesting and subtle sci fi film never gets screwed up and instead he manages to make its story and charachters important there is a chase scene later in the film but if there is story and narrative going on within the action then it's useful and not pointless this is Michael bay's version of minority report and total recall it's a smart and very calming and relaxing movie to watch like your reading book with details I'm sure critics liked his film to and had to admit that it was him doing a thought provoking sci fi with a coherent story and a sense of meaning and soul it could very well be bay's swan song there is little to no yelling and you feel emotion within it. The CGI/ special effects are astonishing like usual for Michael bay films and the action scenes look very realistic, convincing and exiting and engaging and it's easily another one of bay's best Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/11/24 Full Review Les A I saw this movie when it came out. I loved it then and I love it now. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/30/24 Full Review Narciso R I loved everything about it, cast, action. I love that everyone wants to win the lottery, that's hilarious.
