Set in a dystopian future, a group of people work in a facility, essentially as slaves. They do have an incentive though - a regular lottery is held and one of them gets to leave the facility and its restrictions and move to The Island, a paradise. Lincoln Six Echo is one of the workers in the facility and he is infatuated with Jordan Two Delta. His life is fairly uneventful and mundane until Jordan Two Delta gets selected to go to The Island. Then Lincoln starts to discover the truth about the facility and The Island.Written by
In the scene where the jet bike crashes through the office building, an extra is pushed by the oncoming bike into a glass window. This was completely unscripted; the extra was not a stuntman, and couldn't clear the bike's path fast enough. Fortunately, the special effects crew managed to detonate the explosives to shatter the glass a few seconds early, which, according to Michael Bay, may have saved his life. Miraculously, the man sustained no serious injuries. 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 »

Ewan and Scarjo make a good pair and they bring good dinamic on-screen. The movie is great considering it has regular action scenes. The plot of the movie is very innovative and Bay did a great job showing a mix between moral and selfishness. Good acting, good action scenes, good script, good cameos. This film is a solid 7.
