* ShoutOut: Someone on that production team has an appreciation for [[SquareEnix Square]]; [[spoiler: the room where Lincoln and Merrick duke it out]] looks suspiciously like a [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII mako reactor]].

Many fans consider this an unofficial remake of ''Film/{{Clonus}}'', since both share far too many similarities to be coincidence (in fact, the director of ''Parts'' sued and won an out-of-court settlement). It also seems to have echoes of ''Literature/LogansRun''. Also notable for being one of the ''many'' movies in which SeanBean is a bad guy.

''The Island'' is a 2005 film by Creator/MichaelBay set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture starring EwanMcGregor as [[YouAreNumberSix Lincoln Six Echo]] and ScarlettJohansson as Jordan Two Delta. They live in a tightly controlled facility for "survivors" from a vague disaster that rendered the Earth uninhabitable except for "The Island", a paradise on Earth. Periodically, survivors "found" in the outside world are brought in, needing to learn basic skills like reading, while others "win the lottery" and get to go to the island.

* KillingYourAlternateSelf: Although in fairness, most of the insurance policy benefactors probably didn't know that they were paying for the creation and slaughter of fully sentient duplicates. Who can apparently share their dreams. ** Also what Lincoln tricks his pursuers into doing for him, after being betrayed by his original.

Listing this trope is pointless without examples. Add the examples or don't add the trope.
