over blown and humourless
16 April 2014 | by (swansea, Wales) – See all my reviews

I wanted to like this, as I am a big fan of the futuristic death game/nihilistic society genre (see The Running Man; Death Race; The Omega Man). I went to see it in the pictures and found the first half pretty gripping. Then I realised the story was being padded out, and any serious message in the film was gradually being negated by unrealistic and completely unbelievable scenes. e.g.: when the young warriors, who have had to overcome huge obstacles to get where they are, recruit some 'oldies' they - the oldies - proceed to overcome some of those obstacles in no time at all, with no fuss, and with no special training whatever. There is a complete absence of humour in this film. It would have helped to break up the interminable length. There also seems to be a vague narcissistic vibe coming from the young heroes, or maybe that's the director's tendency to dwell on their every move for long periods. There's a vague anti-fascist message in the story, and yet I was left with the opposite ideas in my head e.g. expendable characters - for that read OLD - are killed off; young leads are nigh on perfect in physique and looks. I got the hateful feeling - I think for all the reasons above - that this picture was aimed at a younger audience; and yet there are many great 'young lead' films out there that have mass appeal e.g. Chronicle; Cloverfield. But here, the heroes are young and pretty,they are sexy, they fight brilliantly, they are....boring. And the title of the film refers to something which I didn't think was explained fully - no doubt it will be in the sequel?

Though it's different from Hunger Games in story, I did detect a strong resemblance in feel - and in a twist at the end - to that earlier blockbuster! One of the more intriguing and most original scenes curiously reminded one of the British Doctor Who films of the sixties (with Peter Cushing), yer classic mass mind control, a staple of - usually - low budget films.

Indeed, with half and hour (at least!) shaved off this could have been a very good B-movie.

Maybe the end could have gone, I mean, the very end I do not get at all! why are they being.....? why have they decided to....? questions questions
