All the things that made the trailer to The Island so great, make the film of The Island so rubbish. Mainly the plot. You seem the film of the Island takes about half an hour until the viewer realises that this does not take place in a contaminated world and these are not the last people on earth. Instead this is a clone harvesting facility. The same information is imparted in the trailer in one minute. Plus explosions. The first thirty minutes of The Island does not have any explosions. FOR SHAME!

What the Island does have is gratuitous mag-lev trains, a skyrail system in Los Angeles and JET-BIKES. A discussion on the jet-bikes last night suggested that this bit of the film went as follows:
Producer: This bit of the film is a bit flat.
Michael Bay: We could add something exciting and sexy.
Producer: We’ve got Scarlett Johansson in a french maids outfit.
Michael Bay: Oh. I took that out. Sorry I thought it was a joke.
Producer: We are a bit tight on money after all those white tracksuits we got from TK-Maxx. What do you have in mind.
Michael Bay: Jet bikes. Its set in the future, we need jet bikes.
Producer: What for.
Michael Bay: I WANT JET BIKES.
Producer: Okay, okay. Here’s ten million dollars. It better not be a flop…

The Island is well worth watching for the DANGER: EXPLOSIVE signs that characters persistently ignore, and of course the explosions that follow.
