To be fair , the first was borderline but I'd heard good reviews for this.... don't listen to them. Just utter drivel. A poor mans Battle Royal... and that's OK as films go. Concept is quite good but fails miserably in the delivery and story. Can't wait to miss the 3rd instalment. Apparently I need another 6 lines of text to point out the flaws in this film. Well I suppose we could start with asking "Did she fire six arrows or 42 " ... maybe a few extra were found that weren't necessary to include in the story. Then lets also look at the physics/power of a bow, the size of a reel of cable and other such stupidity thats included in the film. Fine, its fantasy but at least try to obey the basic laws of physics/mass etc .
