Review: The Island (Blu-ray)

Not to be confused with the Michael Bay-directed science fiction film of the same name, Michael Ritchie’s The Island finds Blair Maynard (Michael Caine) and his young son Justin (Jeffrey Frank) stranded on an island off the coast of Florida. Maynard is a journalist working on a story about mysterious disappearances, when a gang of pirates bring them face to face with the frailty of civilized humanity.

Michael Caine leads the cast with a terrific performance. An actor of natural ease and sheer likeability, Caine gives his character an unexpected ambiguity to the many emotional and physical situations he is placed in. David Warner as the leader of the gang of sea faring thieves does his due diligence in creating a character of unexpected complexity. He’s not just a thug, but also a sad character desperate for more in life. Young Jeffrey Frank as Justin is smart, »
