Clones Fight Back

Wealthy individuals purchase clones as an insurance policy against disease or injury in "The Island," a sci-fi thriller starring Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson. Although it’s a compelling story concerning two clones who discover they’re being tricked about being picked to go to an island paradise, the film’s high-voltage special effects and chase sequences almost gave me a migraine. I had to close my eyes during most of the action-packed scenes because of jerky camera movements similar to "The Bourne Supremacy."

Nevertheless, this provocative movie features outstanding performances, stunning futuristic sets and eye-popping cinematography. It’s also a reminder about what it means to be human and how far some people will go to make money out of scientific advances. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it.
