* TheOutsideWorld: The first act takes place in an underground bunker, inhabited by people who believe the world has been devastated some vague disaster, with their bunker and a paradise-like place called 'The Island' from which no-one ever returns to be the only remaining bastions of human civilisation. The protagonists, Lincoln and Jordan, escape the bunker when they learn that it's a PeopleFarm where the inhabitants are cloned and harvested for their organs, and discover that the outside world is fine.

* 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.
