RoboCop (2014): Half-man, half-machine, zero satire
“The new RoboCop is a starkly dramatic tale of a man-machine hybrid struggling to retain his humanity. This is actually a pretty interesting concept for a movie. But it doesn’t feel much like RoboCop.”The Island (2005)
I was always a little apprehensive about championing the cause of Clonus as being ripped off by The Island, because basically, I hadn't seen The Island. Anyone could look at the plot outlines and see the obvious resemblance, of course, but I could never really be sure. At least, not until now.
The Island is finally out on DVD, complete with a commentary track from Michael Bay. After watching the movie twice and listening to Bay's commentary, I'm more convinced than ever that The Island is directly based on Parts: The Clonus Horror. In fact, there are several details and plot points in The Island that make absolutely no sense except as an homage to Clonus. Terror from the Year 5000 (1958)
