I am going to the Island!
After the mystery of their existence is solved the story goes on to sort out everything. This part is also acceptable though a bit on the light side and the final bit is just too easy.
Scarlett Johansson is very beautiful! In her recent movies like Iron Man 2 and The Avengers, where she plays Black Widow, we see her in more action oriented roles than normal for her. In this movie, which is several years prior to those, we get a small taste of her abilities as an action hero. I might be biased, as I have a bit of a crush on her, but I really think that she does a good job playing her part. I am a bit sad that we never got to see her playing the supermodel part of her character.
Sean Bean dies. Ups! Spoiler alert! Spoiler alert! Sorry! Also I am quite confused that he is running the whole organisation but still does some of the dirty work at all levels. Anyway I like him portraying his doctor/psychiatrist part of his character. That creeped me out in a friendly way.
Steve Buscemi is crazy and entertaining as always, yet a bit less than normal in this movie.
