Twenty years into the future and a huge ecological disaster has struck. Seemingly only a handful of people have survived, now contained inside in a controlled facility. Salvation appears to lie on 'The Island', an idyllic resort that offers respite to those chosen to go there.

Ewan McGregor plays Lincoln Six-Echo, a resident who begins to question the validity of The Island and his regulated existence. With Jordan Two-Delta in tow (Scarlett Johanssen) they discover what their keepers are really up to. There's a scene in The Island where characters recite from a Dick and Jane reader, which perfectly sums up this film: it's as dumb as they come. In fact the actors look like they're about to crack up delivering such bad dialogue. To add insult to injury, great chunks from classic Sci-Fi movies are airlifted into it. From the Matrix Revolutions to 70s movies Coma and Logan's Run, there's not one original or exciting idea here.

It's hammy, gratuitous, badly executed and just another reason to loathe Michael Bay's movies. He should stick to cranking out commercials.
