Lincoln Six Echo is just like everyone else - he's waiting to go to the Island, the only place left in the world to actually live a life. Thousands of people stay at a facility waiting to go to the Island. It all sounds like paradise, but Lincoln Six Echo soon discovers that there's actually a sinister purpose going on at that facility and that he must escape - but not before stopping the sinister plan.
During the filming of the scene when Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor are running from the censors out of the atrium, the camera operator was running with them for a tracking shot. He tripped on the dolly track, onto the camera, and was badly injured. See more »
(at around 1h 18 mins) In several quick shots of the armored car smashing into the police car, the police car is clearly a mocked-up front half of a car with dummies in the front seats. Also, several cables and at least one Eyemo camera are visible next to, inside and under the gray SUV that the police car is pushed into. See more »

I, and also my whole family, found this movie extremely enjoyable and very underrated. I have to admit that I had't even heard of this movie and almost passed it by, as soon as it started, I was glad that I didn't.
Because of the content of a lot of movies (ie. graphic sex and/or violence) it can sometimes be hard to find a movie that the whole family can enjoy without feeling uncomfortable (or falling asleep). I found that "The Island" has everything I want in a movie, action, adventure, comedy, and an extremely well written plot line, without an overabundance of sex or violence.
I feel that this movie is well worth watching and highly recommend it.
