The Island

The Island, 2005 film starring Scarlett JohanssonEwan McGregor and Djimon Hounsou.  Nice little scifi about a man who begins to question his existence in the colony which he lives.  Lincoln Six Echo (McGregor) lives in a post apocalyptic, sterile colony.  Supposedly the last sterile colony left on earth.

He soon realizes that something is seriously amiss.  Being told nothing can live outside the colony yet he fins a live bug!  He gets aid from Jordan Two Delta (Johansson) and the escape to find the world mysteriously well in tact, nothing had happened to it.  They are hunted by the powers that be from the colony and the two soon learn the the lie that they have been told.  The lie that changes everything.

I wont go on as that will fully give it away if you haven’t seen it.  This wa a well made film, the story was excellent and the visuals were great.  This is a must see for any scifi fan out there.
