 The Island is a  from Michael Bay movie that begins as a sci-fi movie and then turns into a chase thriller. It centers on Lincoln Six Echo (Ewan McGregor), a survivor after the contamination of our world. The community that he lives in gathers survivors and re-educates them to perform mundane tasks to help the facility run. The only source of hope for the residents is "The Island", an isolated paradise that people are chosen to inhabit via a lottery. What seems like a safe haven in a desolate wasteland, the facility has darker motives that Lincoln Six Echo discovers as he digs deeper.
