2.5 out of 10 The Island
Shane from Galway, 07 Jul 2007
Average enough film and one that i was very disappointed with. I expected a lot but in truth I found it very hard to sit through it until the end. I like sci-fi films so I was looking forward to watching it but while it has its good points I wouldn't particurarly recommend it.

4.5 out of 10 Good intelligent movie
Michiel from Dublin, 22 Dec 2008
I always like movies that go to the edge of generally accepted social standards. This movie is one of them. It start of weird, but you have to stay with it to the end, and it will surprise you. Very good movie indeed.

4.5 out of 10 Brilliant Twist!
Lyn from Cork, 09 Oct 2009
Up until halfway through this film I thought it was going to be just a remake of "Logan's Run", but wait for the brilliant twist! Excellent movie to make you think and full of action too. Well recommended!!!!!

3.5 out of 10 Good concept
Ciaran from Dublin, 23 May 2007
A good sci-fi concept which delivers on most counts. Good idea and plot with reasonably put together action sequences make this an entertaining romp.

What's it about....

Like all the inhabitants of this carefully controlled enviroment, Lincoln hopes to be chosen to go to 'The Island' - reportedly the last uncontaminated spot on the planet - until he makes a terrible discovery that everything about his existence is a lie and that he is actually more valuable dead than alive. Together with a beautiful fellow resident named Jordan...
