* 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.

* CriticalDissonance: Inverted. 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.

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

* CompleteMonster: Dr. Merrick is at first a [[BitchInSheepsClothing charming and helpful doctor]]. He has the clones under his care dissected alive when he views the need as arising, and lies by telling them they'll be sent to the mysterious 'Island,' while lying to the clones' original source by claiming the clones are brain dead and are not living, sentient beings. When one clone's original donor is already dead, Merrick spitefully plans to have her harvested anyways, and attempts to kill any clone who resists him. Drunk on his own genius and power, Merrick seems to view himself as some sort of twisted messiah.

* CompleteMonster: Dr. Merrick. He heartlessly kills clones by ''having them dissected alive''. He takes pride in his work, viewing himself as some twisted messiah. He also plans to harvest Jordan, ''even though he knows that it won't help.'' He also knowingly lies to them and conceals them from the truth.
