* CriticalDissonance: Compared to how most of Bay's films go, the critics were merciful to this one, giving it mixed reviews and praising several aspects of it, with the common criticism that it didn't try hard enough to really be great. However, it was a box office bomb and barely made back its budget, if even that.

* CriticalDissonance: An odd inversion for Michael Bay. Compared to how they react to most of Bay's films go, his films, the critics were merciful to this one, giving it mixed reviews and praising several aspects of it, with the common criticism that it didn't try hard enough to really be great. However, it was a box office bomb and barely made back its budget, if even that.

* MoralEventHorizon: Dr. Merrick's actions are harsh and heartless, but could be seen as necessary extremes to contain a volatile situation which is Lincoln and Jordan escaping. Then he [[spoiler:personally kills Jones, and orders the deaths of dozens of clones because their GeneticMemory is starting to develop]]. Even worse, as this won't stop the same problem from happening again, it's likely he'll just go for the same solution when it does.

* ItsPopularNowItSucks: Inverted. ''The Island'' was held by critics as perhaps Creator/MichaelBay's best movie, but bombed at the box office.
