At the end, when Caine swings the machine gun around and kills the pirates, is an impossible act. The mount only settings in an outward arc, making it impossible to fire on the helo deck that way. See more »

"The Island" was written by Peter Benchley (Jaws, The Deep,). In my own opinion "The Island" is the best of Benchley's novels unfortunately the film pales in comparison. The is nothing glaringly wrong with the movie it just could have been better. I would, however, recommend this film to any fan of the pirate genre. Both the novel and the film come very close to realistically portraying the rather unglamorous life of the Buccaneers of Hispaniola. Forget Errol Flynn and his snow-white puffie shirt...These cut-throats were dirty, toothless, dregs.
