The Island

August 4th, 2005 by Andrew

This movie explored consequences of cloning technology. Although somewhat far-fetched, the ideas and technology presented in this film all seem to be possible. Recently a team of scientists cloned a dog, which is supposedly much harder to do than cloning sheep. The electronic gadgets are all plausible as well. Many aspects of the movie reminded me of “The Matrix”, especially when it was explained how the clones were made. The lottery, the lifestyle and the interaction between the “staff” and the clones were strikingly similar to the movie “Logan’s Run”, in which humans aren’t allowed to live past 30. I won’t go into detail about the movie, but this was a good action and suspense movie, with good characters set in a really great world.
