Set in the year 2019, Lincoln Six Echo (Ewan McGregor) and Jordan Two Delta (Scarlett Johansson) are best friends in a repressive and dystopian society, where everybody expects to win the lottery. The prize is to move to a paradisiacal island outside the domes that protect the dwellers against what they have been told is a contaminated environment. Jordan wins the lottery, and Lincoln accidentally finds the truth behind the utopist award that sets the stage for the plot. The Island begins with a montage of induced dream scene sequences, and a resonant male voice saying “You’re special. You have a very special purpose in life. You’ve been chosen. The Island awaits you.” A reminiscent theme with overt echos among other milestone sci-fi dystopic films like THX 1138 Fahrenheit 451 and 1984.
The film focuses on Lincoln Six Echo (McGregor), who struggles to fit into the highly structured world in which he lives, isolated in a sterile biosphere compound, and the series of events that unfold when he questions how truthful that world is. After Lincoln learns the inhabitants are clones used for organ harvesting as well as surrogates for wealthy people in the outside world, he attempts to escape with Jordan Two Delta (Johansson) and expose the illegal cloning practice.
Lincoln and Jordan find James McCord a technician working at the Merrick facility, who explains that all the facility residents are clones of wealthy sponsors, and are kept ignorant about the real world and conditioned to never question their environment or history. McCord provides the name of Lincoln’s sponsor in Los Angeles and helps them to the Yucca maglev station, where they board an Amtrak train to LA before mercenaries hired to find and recover the clones can catch them. In New York City, Jordan’s sponsor, model Sarah Jordan, is comatose following a car crash and requires transplants from Jordan to survive. Lincoln’s sponsor, Tom Lincoln, gives Lincoln some explanation about the cloning institute, causing Lincoln to realize that he has gained Tom’s memories. Merrick surmises that a cloning defect was responsible for Lincoln’s memories and behavior, resulting in him and every future clone generation to question their environment and even tap into their sponsor’s memories. To prevent this, he decides to eliminate the four newest generations of clones and orders a lottery pool begin to dispatch multiple Island winners slated to be destroyed at once. The stark parallels in the Island to real world events unfolding since the covid “vaccine” campaign started is another remarkable example of predictive programming as art imitates life.
The creators of the 1979 film Parts: The Clonus Horror, which was also about a colony that breeds clones to harvest organs for the elite, filed a copyright infringement suit in 2005.DreamWorks attempted to have the suit dismissed but a federal judge determined that there was indeed a copyright infringement case to be heard and scheduled the case to go to trial in February 2007. However, DreamWorks then settled the case out of court in late 2006 for an undisclosed seven-figure sum.
