The Island

The Island (2005)

Human clones meant for harvesting fight back in this sci-fi thriller set in the mid-21st century. Lincoln (Ewan McGregor) uncovers the awful truth about his utopian society -- that he and all other residents are actually clones to be used as spare parts for their corresponding humans. Determined to survive, Lincoln and a gorgeous resident (Scarlett Johansson) flee the city on a life-and-death mission. Djimon Hounsou and Steve Buscemi also star.
My Two Cents: Buffet of smart sci-fi themes (e.g.,AI-Blade Runner-Brave New World), but too often leans on cliches to drive the story.

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 7/10
