The Island (Ostrov) - Sci-Fi Action by Michael Bay. The flashiest of the big summer blockbuster directors, Michael Bay (Armageddon, Bad Boys, Pearl Harbor), returns with a paranoid vision of the future. Ewan MacGregor and Scarlett Johansson, respectively, star as Lincoln Six Echo and Jordan Two Delta, two clones who believe they are being sent to live on Earth's last remaining habitable island. Instead, to their dismay, they soon learn they are actually being sent to die. Steve Buscemi, Sean Bean, and Djimon Honsou also star.
