THE ISLAND

A sci-fi thriller movie which completely enthralls you is what The Island is. This movie was released in 2005 and starred Ewan McGregor, Michael Bay and sexy Scarlett Johansson. The movie is all about the struggle of Ewan’s character. He struggles to fit into a highly developed world he lives in. He finds out that the persons around him are just clones and they are exploited for organs and surrogate motherhood by high and mighty personalities. He learns that the world he is living in an isolated compound. After learning these harsh truths, he escapes. 
The approximate cost for making this movie is $126 million and runs for about one hundred and thirty-six minutes. Unfortunately it didn’t much business in USA but it grossed one hundred and twenty-seven million dollars world-wide.

The ruined sections shown in the movie are actually the subterranean compound in Rhyolite in Nevada and the city portions were shot in Michigan and Detroit. Due to its poor performance in its home country, it was initially considered to be a dud but the world-wide collections saved its skin and made it a sleeper hit. Critics were pretty harsh about the movie because they said that acting was good but it was not able to project the ethical issues it wanted to show and got a “rotten” rating of 40%. It bagged three nominations which includes the Teen choice award. So overall the movie was not a complete flop. It is a nice movie which raises some severe ethics based questions.
