TCP - Genetically Engineered




This week topic for Tuesday Couch Potatoes is anything that is genetically engineered. My pick would be the movie "The Island" with stars Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson. I have seen this movie when it was out on the theater back in the Philippines. I have seen it again on TV and that was my second time to have had watched this genetically engineered movie. It was about cloning and good movie to watch.

The Island is a 2005 science fiction film directed by Michael Bay and starring Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson. It was released on July 11, 2005 in the US. It was nominated for 3 awards including the Teen Choice award.



Synopsis:
Lincoln Six-Echo (Ewan McGregor) and Jordan Two-Delta (Scarlett Johansson) live in a contaminate-free facility to protect them from a worldwide disease. Everyone in the facility has been told that "The Island" is the only place on earth that has not been infected. All the residents want to go to "The Island," but the only way to be chosen is by winning the lottery. Starkweather (Michael Clarke Duncan) wins a trip to "The Island" and is sent on his way. Lincoln has an inquiring mind and wants to know more by exploring the inner workings of the facility. Lincoln discovers that he is a clone when he sees Starkweather being operated on for his body parts. His entire life at the facility has been a lie. Lincoln and Jordan are able to escape from the facility before they win a trip to "The Island." They want to meet their donor and stop the harvesting of body parts. The head of the facility hires mercenaries to track them down before they can expose his secret to the world. Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)
