The Island (2005) PG - 3½ Stars

Here's a world where clones are confined until needed to provide organs to their DNA owners should they need them. The problem is, Lincoln Six Echo (Ewan McGregor) doesn't know he's a clone.

While in the middle of the 21st century and most of the earth is uninhabitable, he's accepted his life in this confined indoor community with the hopes, like everyone else, that someday he'll win the lottery. What's the prize? Life ever after on a perfect tropical island in the outside world. When he discovers the true fate of the lottery winners he grabs his fellow clone Jordan Two Delta (Scarlett Johansson) who he's taken a liking to, and the two plan their escape to the outside world.
