Have any of you seen "The Island?"

It is set in the 2050's and people buy "insurance policies" which are clones.  So, when you need a new kidney, they just get one from the clone.  Way more to the movie.  Action packed si-Fi.  Pretty interesting movie.   8)

I've been meaning to check it out. I think it looks interesting. However http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/island/ it has a "Rotten" rating. But I never listen to reviewers everyone has their own taste in movies.

I thought it was a great movie, especially Ewan McGregor :-* .Who knows, maybe one day it will be like that. Won't have to wait for your transplant, just get it off your clone. :o
