The English subtitle is too small. It’s very hard to read. If u want to show in locations w mostly English speakers. That has to be improved. Nothing is worse than straining ur eyes for 2 hrs trying to follow the dialogues.
It’s both way too much and also somehow not enough, but even the most exhausting stretches of this bloated import blockbuster are fearless enough to make you wish that American films would follow suit.
Bo’s secret weapon in The Island is Shu Qi, an effortlessly magnetic star who enlivens even the dullest material. Kept in the background for a lot of the story, she still brings a welcome human touch to a plot that keeps threatening to turn into a lecture.
There are no good or bad people in The Island, just a group of hapless schmucks who become more sympathetic as they get more desperate.
