A man living in a futuristic sterile colony begins to question his circumscribed existence when his friend is chosen to go to the Island, the last uncontaminated place on earth.
“The Island” is a 2005 American science fiction action thriller film directed and co-produced by Michael Bay. The film is set in a futuristic, sterile colony and follows the story of Lincoln Six Echo (played by Ewan McGregor), who begins to question his circumscribed existence when his friend, Jordan Two Delta (played by Scarlett Johansson), is chosen to go to the Island, the last uncontaminated place on Earth. The film explores themes of cloning, ethics, and society in a near future.
The movie has two distinct halves: the first half is a spare, creepy science fiction parable, while the second half shifts into a high-tech action picture. The film features a star-studded cast, including Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johansson, Sean Bean, and Djimon Hounsou. The budget for the film was $126 million, and it grossed $162.9 million at the box office.
