Weekend DVD 1: The Island (2005)

They don't want you to know what you are.

The Island (2005) is a sci-fi action movie directed by Michael Bay. Yes, that Michael Bay who directed Transformers I & II.

Synopsis: The year is 2019. Lincoln Six Echo (Ewan McGregor) s one of the thousands of residents living in a strictly controlled facility without any contact with the outside world. This Utopian facility is headed by
Dr. Merrick (Sean Bean). These residents have only on hope -- to be chosen to go to "The Island" -- reported to be the last uncontaminated place in the world.

Fueled with inquisitiveness and curiosity, Lincoln soon discovers the shocking truth about the facility and their existence. Refused to be kept in captivity any longer, Lincoln makes a daring escape with a fellow female resident, Jordan Two Delta (Scarlett Johansson) to search for answers.

Now, it is up to Lincoln and Jordan to save the rest of the facility's residents from their cruel destiny. Pursued by bounty hunters led by Albert Laurent (Djimon Hounsou), they eventually find themselves face to face with Lincoln's sponsor whereupon they decide to stop Merrick's evil plans and expose his horrifying activities to the world.

This sci-fi movie is very engaging even from the very beginning as it starts off with an interesting premise and continues steadily to reveal the final truth in the end.
Although concepts such as human clones, memory imprints, evil corporations, and the pursuit of individual freedom and identity in a futuristic setting are not new in this genre, they are explored successfully and entertainingly. Besides that, the crash and action sequences are good. Not surprising, Michael Bay is known to love cars blown up on highways in his action movies.

Throughout the entire movie, we receive subtle glimpses of the truth from time to time and as the movie approaches its ending after two hours, you'll find it totally enjoyable and satisfying. Highly recommended!
