This was a pretty solid movie overall. I wasn't really sure what it was about but it was definitely a different plot. It had some resemblance to the hunger games but overall was pretty different. The movie was entertaining and kept me in the whole time. It got confusing at times but that was intriguing part about it. There is a solid amount if action and you will not get bored watching this movie. If you were debating whether or not to watch this or not i do recommend it. As far as the level of appropriateness for kids its not bad a few swears hear and there but not bad. Nothing really that inappropriate.

Surprisingly, the directing style, the scores, the visual effect, and the editing were blended together nicely. Good job, filmmakers.
