Last night, TGIM and I saw a special Sneak Preview screening of The Island. Since I couldn't think of anything more intelligent to write on the survey than "Wow! A sizzling summer blockbuster that blows all other summer films out of the water!" (Hey! Performance anxiety can happen to anyone, okay?!), I will attempt to redeem myself by writing my very first "official" Movie Review by a Desperate Working Momma.
Oh. And no worries. This review contains absolutely no spoilers.
MOVIE: The Island
(Oh my GAWSH! Look at her BOOBS in this poster! That shite ain't right!)
I mean, honestly. Who wouldn't want to be chosen in the lottery for an all-expense paid trip to The Island, reportedly the last uncontaminated spot on the planet? Well, as Lincoln Six-Echo and Jordan Two-Delta learn, certainly not them, that's who.
If you see this movie-- and dudes, you totally should-- be sure to pack the Depends, y'all, because there are so many jolts and exciting twists in this summer hit, you will more than likely piddle your pants a bit. Ewan McGregor (Lincoln Six-Echo) and Scarlett Johansson (Jordan Two-Delta) sizzle-- SIZZLE, I say!-- as a pair of human clones who don't know that every memory they have of their existence in their seemingly utopian society is a lie. Director Michael Bay (The Rock, Armageddon, Bad Boys) practically begs the audience for a willing suspension of disbelief, filling the screen with more explosions and miraculously close calls than a room full of prepubescent boys at Neverland, but you will find that you are more than happy to oblige him. The movie moves along at a breakneck pace, with a script chock full of heart-pounding action amidst clever jokes and quotable one-liners, not to mention the amazing musical score and jaw-dropping special effects, as Lincoln and Jordan each desperately race to meet their maker. No, literally.
All this makes the movie not only a brutal yet sexy action-adventure film, but a genuine summer blockbuster you will not want to miss.
Seriously. Just looking at them is worth the price of admission, you know what I'm sayin'? Oh, I think you DO.

Excellent review! Looks like a good one, but it probably won't get here for a bazillion years...well at least six months anyway.
