I hope that life doesn’t imitate art having real life following the storyline in Island. I’m sure that Island will serve as the catalyst for many discussions regarding cloning and stem cell research. Just because science can achieve unthinkable feats does that mean society should allow them to proceed in the name of progress?
The Island provides these interesting starting points for discussion, but little else. The script is weak and continual chase scenes are hard to take after awhile. Since the clones live a very structured, controlled and scripted “life”, it is hard to relate to care about them. Their “caregivers” only think of them as products, less than human good only for their business profits.
If you are cruising for a good flick, don’t get stranded on “The Island”. There are better choices out there.
Due to objectionable language and violence, Dove cannot award the Dove Seal to “The Island”.
