About the Movie
Blockbuster action director Michael Bay delivers a striking look at a strange world of the future in this sci-fi action drama. Midway through the 21st century, Lincoln Six Echo (Ewan McGregor) lives in a confined indoor community after ongoing abuse of the Earth has rendered most of the planet uninhabitable. One of the only places in the outside world still capable of sustaining life is an idyllic island where citizens are chosen to live through a lottery. Or at least that's what Lincoln and his fellow citizens are taught to believe; the truth is that Lincoln, like everyone he knows, is actually a clone who is kept under wraps to provide needed organs when the person who supplied his or her DNA falls ill. When he becomes aware that his existence is a fraud, Lincoln escapes to the outside world with a fellow clone, Jordan Two Delta (Scarlett Johansson), though the powers that be are determined to see that no one gets away alive. The Island also stars Steve Buscemi, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Sean Bean.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: What the clone lovers find is a new world -- it's 2019 -- of highway collisions, flying motorbikes, exploding buildings, bad acting and moral incoherence, very much like old Bay movies.
Rotten: The Island is nothing so dull as a total failure. But it has enough surprises up its clingy white sleeve to make you wish it were better.
Fresh: On its own terms, The Island is just fine.
Rotten: Since Michael Bay never knows when enough is enough, every chase is restaged over and again and the narrative matrix is as simplistic as it is repetitive.
Gotta say, 'bout time The Island came out now! Cause this film is a 'total' improvement over Bay's last films (if of course you didn't like his last films). But I don't exactly HATE them, just saying this is one of Michael Bay's more appreciated movies he's made. Maybe not THE best I don't know, but still great film!
Another great movie, by a great director. Michael Bay is the best. Good work
It's about DAGG-ON TIME!!!!!
For the last few years, I kept typing this title in the search box looking for this particular movie only to find some old movie with a knife. I decided to type it in tonight and when I saw this movie, my eyes lit up like silver dollars. What took these ninjas so long to get this movie to iTunes? However, I am elated and relieved that it is finally here & I will be buying the HD version, simply put… this movie is worth it!! (Michael Bay movie)?…Nough said!!!!!!!
