Really something...so why did that movie earlier this year have to steal the title?! (by lee_eisenberg)
Like "Strawdogs" and "Deliverance", "The Island" looks at bringing out man's inner beast. Following a series of ugly murders in the Caribbean, reporter Blair Maynard Michael Caine and his son go down there to investigate. Unfortunately, they find out the hard way what's going on when a group of pirates kidnaps them and turns the son into a pirate. From there, it's up to the dad to set things right.While we usually expect Caine to be a serious actor, he does an interesting job in this action/horror flick. Like I've said in other reviews, he may <more>
be the Union Jack's most dependable actor of the last forty years. Oh, and for the record, IMDb.com doesn't identify it, but "The Island"'s tag-line is: "This summer, the scariest thing in the water is..." and then it shows the title.And now, the ugly part of this review. Why did that apparently idiotic movie last summer you know, the box office dud starring Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson which I thankfully never saw have to steal this cool movie's title?!
Where do, I begin... This movie was great from beginning to end for a small budget and great plot. The only main historical error, I could find with the movie is you get the idea if you follow Pirate history is David Warner plays character Jean David Nau who obviously his ancestor would be Francois L'Olonnais Jean David Nau who was shipwrecked with his crew by Navidad. They seem to obviously survived the native attacks, the only problem, I have is when they hoist up there black flag after taking the Coast Guard ship it is of Emmanuel Wynne's. Anyhow they made it a believable story <more>
of Pirates that survived on this island and started a colony for 300 years. Which you mix it up with the Bermuda Triangle. Wow! It explains the shipping loss aspect. I am not going to ruin it with getting into the plot the other writers summed it up pretty well just wanted to give a bit of historical aspect of the movie and general opinion of the movie. Great characters and acting a movie worth being released on DVD and hopefully it will have an uncut version of the movie and possibly deleted scenes due to the small budget..
One of those films you have seen when you were younger and never forget. Good story, and great ending, I would recommend this movie for anyone who has the fortune to come across it on a late night television channel. Unfortunately, this is probably the only place you will actually get to see it, unless you can find it on VHS. Micheal Caine delivers a great performance, as well as David Warner, who always seems to have obscure rolls in movies. This actor should definitely receive a lot more attention. This is certainly a little treasure to add to your "old movie" shelf. If you have <more>
The Island is an exciting action-adventure movie which was mush better than I expected. I saw it on TV for about a year ago and I must admit that the first 40 minutes was a bit boring, but the rest of the movie was really exciting and bloody and gave me a bit of a shock. Good actors, and great plot. 8 out of 10 from me
A Memorable Movie (by lpersons-2)
I watched this movie many, many years ago, and like all good movies it left an impression on me. I think about this movie from time to time and remember it bringing out many emotions in me, mostly fear. I would love to watch it again if I can ever find it available. I don't remember to much about it, but loved Michael Caine and felt he did an excellent job in his role. This is a modern day pirate story, that seems to be probably fairly close to reality. I did not read the book so I can't compare the two. I figure that the fact that the movie has left such an impact on me all these <more>
years later, gives the movie a positive rating. I wonder if I watched it now if I would still enjoy it?
