Goofs

If a body can be cloned, so can an organ. There would be no need to kill a clone by harvesting something like its liver, when a liver could just be grown. The sponsors might not know what will ail them, and organs take time to clone, so it makes sense to clone the entire body. See more »

Michael Bay's Finest Moment!!!
23 July 2005 | by humantorch125See all my reviews

The last few Michael Bay movies that I saw were not that great, but after seeing this movie today I have only one word to describe it, Amazing! When I first saw the previews for this film I thought that it looked cool, but I never expected it to be as good as it was. Don't be surprised if this movie wins any awards by the end of the year. This movie is very unique while at the same time reminds you of Logun's Run. The score is well-paced and really sets the tone for the movie. The chase sequences are absolutely incredible and will have you on the edge of your seat. Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson are perfect in their roles and make the movie movie seem very real. Overall, this is by far one of the best movies that I have ever seen and I advise anyone who has not yet seen it to drop everything you are doing and go to the "Island!"
