No sci-fi thriller
Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson star in “The Island.”
If only we could keep Michael Bay away from things that go boom, he might be capable of making a good movie.

Bay’s best 45-minute film ever just may be “The Island”. Unfortunately, “The Island” is more than two hours long.

After ruining big-rock-crashes-into-Earth movies (“Armageddon”) and sneaky-Japanese-destroying- naval-port movies (“Pearl Harbor”), Bay has set his sights on Stanley Kubrick territory in the sci-fi outing “The Island.”

For a while at least, Bay manages to fool everyone into thinking that this could be an interesting commentary on life in these United States.

Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson are the big guns here, two inhabitants in a high-tech society who are more than willing to obey the commands of their superiors. They are after all, the lucky ones, the few survivors from some unspecified contaminant that has killed off most of the world’s population.

So Lincoln Six Echo (McGregor) and Jordan Two Delta (Johannson) do their daily chores and hope that someday, they will be selected for the lottery, a chance to go to that paradise, The Island.
