SRC 165: The Island (2005)
When your sci-fi action film plays more like a highlights reel from far better sci-fi action films, you know you've cloned your way into the Restroom...
THE ISLAND deals with two dumb clones (Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johansson) who escape from an underground organ production facility and embark on a cross country chase to find their owners. What follows are 136 minutes of typical Michael Bay car chases, product placement shots, sexism, and explosions. Oh, and Sean Bean turns in another, die-before-the-end-credits performance.
This cinematic oil stain is available for streaming on Amazon and YouTube, but as always, you're better off leaving this Bay non-Transformers to us and go watch COMA again instead.
Joining us as part of our extended co-flushing team this time out are Brandan Haize & Anthony Dynar, the Low Score boys from YouTube's Torturevision channel. Low Score essentially does for videogames what we do for films here in the Restroom. Check them out!
Sit back now and give a listen as Griffin, Polton, & Knight flush you down the Cinematic Bowl with, THE ISLAND...
