I'll admit straight away that I have a thing for this underrated action movie, and when you really enjoy something, I guess you are really open to any of it's elements. Some of the positive elements of this movie are the soundtrack, the story (stolen from an older movie or not) and it's lead actress, Scarlett Johansson (though I guess that if you have been checking this site more often, that's no surprise to you). Another element I love about The Island is the chase scene halfway through, which gives us a lot of vehicular damage, brought to the screen in spectacular ways.
The characters of Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson are on the run. They have very recently found out they are mere clones, brought to life so their 'original' can use them for spare body parts. Not looking forward to being cut open and emptied, they take a hike, only to be chased by a large group of trained assassins, led by Djimon Hounsou. Now if you will consider that Ewan McGregor's character is really only a few years old, and has spent his entire life crefully shielded away, it's quite amazing how well he can take care of several of the bad guys on his trail.
Take for instance the way he deals with them in the beginning. He and Scarlett get on a large truck which is transporting train wheels. The cars behind them are shooting at them, and there is no way to crawl under the wheels, or at least not for Scarlett (I guess her boobs got in the way). To save both her and himself, Ewan's Lincoln Six Echo unfastens the chains holding the train wheels and drops them off the truck, straight into their pursuers. It's very satisfying to see how the bad guys end up. Some of the cars get smashed to bits, others get cut in half, and it's a refreshing change to not have to listen to inane wisecracks when another baddie bites the dust (wisecracks can be a cool element of any car chase, but only when delivered right).
When the bad guys finally get the bright idea to blow the tires to the truck, Lincoln just steals one of their hover-motorcycle-thingies, after which the chase continues. But it's mostly this part that got my adrenalin going, and luckily for all of us: you can see it on YouTube by clicking here.
