Good, but I expected great
23 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

(I'm spoiling this right at the top) But ...they didn't eat the children. At least, not that I saw. It's not a zombie film, but it's close, and in zombie films, they have no qualms about killing the kids on screen. We accept it, because it's so absurd. So to actually NAME your movie this, and NOT show it? Cowardly.

Also, although it's a ridiculous idea from the outset, let's assume the premise is true, and that Porcicure or whatever it's called turns you into a garbage-eater because garbage just tastes so good.

It's a fun idea. We like to speculate about the future, and what if we did X or Y. So here, it makes people hungry for garbage. It's also a rather blunt statement about consumer society. We do eat garbage. It just looks and smells and tastes like food. But there were some things that, even in the context of the film, don't make sense.

1. How do you go from eating garbage (because it tastes so good) to eating freshly-killed meat? I doubt fresh meat tastes anything like garbage.

2. Who is going to continue to perform a procedure that turns people into cannibals? It didn't seem like there was a lot of time in between the procedure, the garbage-eating, the cat-eating, and cannibalism. How could the procedure be performed on so many people that you'd run out of non-human animals and adult humans (including each other) to eat?

3. The procedure didn't make anyone superhuman. It just made them hungry. So, how did all these other people die? Nobody had a baseball bat handy?

So I give it a 7 for being a fun idea, and not-so-subtle comment on consumer society, but this should have been better.
