The Island

Romance . Adventure . Science Fiction . Thriller . Action

Lincoln Six-Echo is a resident of a seemingly Utopian but contained facility in the year 2019. Like all of the inhabitants of this carefully controlled environment, Lincoln hopes to be chosen to go to the "The Island" - reportedly the last uncontaminated spot on the planet. But Lincoln soon discovers that everything about his existence is a lie. He and all of the other inhabitants of the facility are actually human clones. Lincoln makes a daring escape with a beautiful fellow resident named Jordan Two-Delta. Relentlessly pursued by the forces of the sinister institute that once housed them, Lincoln and Jordan engage in a race for their lives to literally meet their makers.

More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    The Island runs 136 minutes, but that's not long for a double feature. The first half of Michael Bay's new film is a spare, creepy science fiction parable, and then it shifts into a high-tech action picture. Both halves work.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    It's got a hot premise, some cool sets, attractive stars and action that lets up only when it thinks you're about to surrender.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Bay's best film since "The Rock."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The movie is more about how many things Michael Bay can smash up -- lots. That might not be a talent most people respect, but it gets through to people anyway, and here Bay does it exceptionally well.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Bay's movie couldn't be more timely; whatever you think about this subject, you might admire his attempt to come to grips with it in a summer blockbuster.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Starts off an aggressively derivative sci-fi thriller, then morphs into an above-average chase melodrama.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Glossy, witty eye candy with some moderately chewy stuff in the middle. This lavish, exhaustingly kinetic film is smarter than you might expect, and at the same time dumber than it could be. It's an impressive product: a triumph of cloning that almost convinces you that it possesses a soul.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    The final so overblown and anticlimactic that it finally gets you thinking about empty profundity and loose ends.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • William Arnold

    Make no mistake: This not high art. But it does its job without insulting our intelligence or unpleasantly jangling our nerves.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Bay's strength as a filmmaker, the reason his superficial yet entertaining productions can never be completely ignored, is that he appears to lack shame. He'll blow anything up and run anybody over. The moral complexities don't matter to him. He just wants to stage spectacles, appreciate very good-looking people, and assert his cowboy aesthetic.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    There's enough fun to be had that it's almost possible to ignore the stupidity of the story and the cavity that replaces character development.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Scarlett Johansson looks lovely and hasn't much to do besides that, McGregor only starts having fun when he's playing the "original" of his clone.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    As the careening cars go splat, splat, splat, the director's vision of the future looks like a cheerfully mindless combination of two extremes of carnival entertainment: demolition derby and whack-a-mole.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    Like its slack-jawed clones, The Island is full of energy and incredibly pretty but burdened with only the minimum of smarts.

    Empire Full Review
  • Dennis Lim

    This is pure essence of Bay--it's big, it's loud, it has no context, and if you show up tanked, I'm sure it's really quite poetic.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    There is nothing wrong with the action sequences beyond their sheer length and number. They're in the "Road Warrior" mode: hyper-fast and vicious.

    Slate Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Frenetic actioner about refugees from a genetic cloning plant starts off intriguingly, burns up its ideas in the first hour and pads out the rest with joltingly repetitive action sequences.

    Variety Full Review
  • Allison Benedikt

    Classic Bay, except it's missing the crass director's fine-tuned rhythm, his feel for adrenaline, his breakneck edits and sense of humor.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The first half is high-quality science fiction, the rest is a high-tech chase adventure with a gleeful yen for destructive thrills.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Unfortunately, The Island grows dumber as it goes along, gradually disintegrating into a generic good-versus-evil spectacular that not only defies all known laws of gravity and physics, but also suffers from the lack of morality that plagues Bay's films.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The Island could be read as a metaphor for societal ills (commercialization, conformity, pharmaceutical overkill) if it weren't so shamelessly dumb. And dumb it is.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    This frenzied fiesta of firepower is about cloning people for spare parts, but the movie is a clone itself. Possessing no new ideas, it reworks and borrows from such films as "Blade Runner," "The Matrix" and "Logan's Run."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Like "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," The Island is the kind of suicidal high-concept movie increasingly prevalent these days: a film so thoroughly pre-conceived and pre-sold that most audiences know more about what's going on than the characters do for half the movie.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    For a slick pop entertainment, more than the usual quotient of timely ideas rattle around between the relentless product placements and futuristic geegaws.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The Island begins with a whimper of interest as a cool-hued, cautionary exploration of the ethics of cloning, and ends, in a hail of product placement, with a dumb bang.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The Island walks a weird, wobbly line between being stupid, falsely fattened-up entertainment and a picture that just might have possibly been made by a person with a brain -- a scrambled one, but a brain nonetheless. Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Nary an original idea abounds in The Island.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Bill Gallo

    As usual, Hollywood hitmeister Bay is more interested in blowing stuff up than in addressing deep questions like the morality of science and the false myths of civilization, and these explosions go on for over two hours.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Chases, crashes and explosions are thick on the land in the second half of this movie, but though they are expertly done, their size, frequency and increasing disconnection from what was once a coherent story leave you feeling pummeled rather than exhilarated.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Richard Schickel

    For all the menace of its techno-prattle, its implicit boosts for humanism and its swell production design, the picture is finally a bore. Sci-fi was more powerful when its special effects were cheap and crude, its ideas simple but potently stated.

    Time Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    The best thing about The Island is this: Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson, buffed and dressed in sparkling white, wondering how and when to kiss each other.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Steve Buscemi supplies the only spark of intelligent life in this numbingly flat universe, despite the fancy gadgets, the high-speed chases, and a skyscraper collision reminiscent of the World Trade Center attacks.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Michael Ferraro

    What makes this movie so inadequate is that there are some moments in it that could have been really worth watching.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    An overblown science-fiction epic in which ostensibly unthinking, unfeeling stem-cell-like entities not only think and feel, but look and act like glamorous movie stars.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    A borrowed idea -- hello, "Blade Runner," hi there, "Matrix" -- but an idea nonetheless.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Marrit Ingman

    If you like "Maxim," you will love The Island. It is glossy. It is expensive. It has lots of slick ads for Aquafina and Cadillac.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    If you find yourself at "The Island" I have only three words of advice: Vote yourself off.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Comes on like an overproduced coma, and leaves you comatose by the end. In between are 127 minutes of intermittent chaos that feel like a lifetime.
