The Island on DVD
 
Helmed by three-time RAZZIE® Nominee Michael Bay, THE ISLAND totally bombed here in the US, managing the ignominious distinction of being out-grossed by ADVENTURES OF SHARK BOY AND LAVA GIRL. Edited in Bay's usual Benihana-on-Benzedrine style, ISLAND tells the too-often-told tale of An Apparent Paradise That's Hiding an Awful Secret (see also LOGAN'S RUN, SOYLENT GREEN, etc. etc.). The most enjoyable thing about THE ISLAND was finally seeing Bay fall flat on his face...

Michael Bay attempting to get away with plagiarism (PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR anyone?) should alone get him some serious consideration for Worst Director. (Not to mention the film was a huge bomb at the box office, and sucked to boot!).

Hell if that were a qualification Oliver Stone would have had one for U-Turn which was a blatant Red Rock West rip-off.

Other than that the worst I can say this that I didn't completely hate The Island.
