Much better than i expected. Loads of social commentary packed into this flick. My only qualms with it is that the movie didnt take itself seriously enough to be a truly great dystopian film. it seemed to get a bit too mired in the preteen fantasy version of a girls experience rather than trying to more directly approach some of the underlying topics it tried to present. i would have preferred the director to have made some of the underlying topics like social conformity, the issues of removing soldiers responsibility through the command structure, societal grouping and artificial taxonomies of people as opposed to a more spirit of unity, the moral responsibility of leadership to put the needs of the many above the few, and nationalistic/religious zealousness that cripple actual lasting piece, rather than having these seem just an afterthought. i came to see a movie that looked like just another preteen fantasy of becoming an empowered center of the universe, and i got a striking commentary on society as a whole. 8/10
It was a time that I didn't watch a "speak speak" movie. Generally I go for things which deactivate the brain a bit, sci-fi, fantasy, animation, a bit comedy and action. Coming from the last "amaaaazing" (=extremely booooring) spiderman, I must say that I appreciated this film for its simplicity on telling a normal story of normal people in a normal way, with humanity and good actors. I am still pretty sure that I will prefer the sci-fi blabla genre. And I believe that the 8 ratings are a bit exager-rated. But a 6.5 I would give it. My invitation to teenager would yet be: do not take this movie as a "you MUST go to college". You just must not become assholes as he was becoming. Then, you can do whatever you want. There are more important things in life than the economical stability. And if it is true that in extreme poverty it is very hard to live, it is also true that when you are 100% safe you do not grow well. And it is also true that people who smile more (specially families who smile more, together) are not the richest ones.
Not a bad movie. very creepy and freaky for sure. the sound on the one i watched was awful. it got better at 72min, RIGHT when the movie ended it can in crystal clear like DVD quality but the entire movie sounded like a movie theater post over. Scary for sure, lots of jump scenes, 7/10
It's actually not a true story at all, not even based on a real story. You can see some interviews with the Cohen brothers and they talk about this. It's just a publicity stunt and a way to get more people excited about their film.
Awful Awful movie, I'm happy we didn't download it for the future. I fell asleep like three times on it. I can't stand these type of movies anymore where it seems to be live and taped by the person themselves. Move on and don't bother at all. Really could have been a good movie if done correctly and filmed right. Also, added a person of mystery that could have help them out of this problem. 2/10 Sorry
Not a bad movie, but not great. I wouldn't call this a horror movie for sure, just a scary movie or attempt there of. Ending was awful. 6/10 i would only say give it a watch if you've seen the others and want to watch it for the name it bares but they have gotten way off track with what the originals were. just trying to spice things up to make money.
