Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): Lincoln and Jordan hide on a truck carrying train wheels, even though previous scenes show that trains no longer use wheels. However, these rusty wheels could have been on their way to the scrapyard.
  • Movie Goof (plot holes): SPOILER: Merrick explains one part of keeping the clones in line is by closely engineering all their entertainment to promote passive, non-violent, compliant behavior. Yet earlier, in the clone "nightclub", we're treated to the image of Lincoln 6 Echo and Jordan 2 Delta smacking the stuffing out of each other in a holographic arena. Even if they don't really punch each other, it's hard to see this as promoting "passive, non-violent, compliant behavior."
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): In the shot through the windscreen of the Black Wasp as it begins its descent over the freeway, a camera and three crew members are briefly visible in the bottom left corner of the frame.
  • Robert S. Fiveson, director of The Clonus Horror (1979), brought a copyright infringement suit against the makers of this film. The lawsuit cited almost 100 points of similarity between "Clonus" and The Island, and the court ruled that Fiveson made a prima facie case for infringement. Before the case could go to trial, Dreamworks settled with the plaintiffs for an undisclosed amount.
