Full Trailer for the Upcoming Chinese Action Extravaganza The Island

4 Comments


Although I hate to admit it, I do have a soft spot for motion pictures that involve secluded islands, extreme danger, and a small group of people in peril. “Battle Royale” is one of my favorite movies, and may be somewhat responsible for this curious obsession. Needless to say, the upcoming Chinese action flick “The Island” — not to be confused with Michael Bay’s dodgy effort — looks rather spiffy, although it would appear that a high tolerance for cheese is necessary for one to find enjoyment within this admitted silly little motion picture. If you have a moment or two to spare, separate yourself from the herd and enjoy the new trailer, which arrives courtesy of Film Smash.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

      Ahhh, the amazing world of different opinions. I guess my next line should be “I completely disagree with you”.

    I am in total agreement, though my obsession began in 1993 w/ “Jurassic Park”.
