The Island

This movie is much better than the critics are saying. Some are complaining that there are two distinct halves to the movie. I agree, and I call them: the beginning and the ending. And like most movies, both are needed in order to have a complete movie. This movie works just fine, with a less action packed beginning and a more action packed ending. If there were no reason for the change in tempo, the criticism would be justified. However, the tempo change is necessary, and completely natural. This movie was worth the time and the money.
