RIDICULOUS premise...but the acting ain't bad for a YouTube film
30 October 2016 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

So, I went into this with some degree of skepticism as it was another one of those apocalyptic teen movies ala Hunger Games, Maze Runner, Divergent, etc...so they are all getting a bit formulaic. However, they can be quite entertaining. So, I gave it a try. I knew at the very beginning I would have problems with the premise that they chose to kill kids based off test scores. I mean, come on people...A) this has somewhat been done before in "the lottery" and B) apparently the "thinning" only happens in Texas...so everyone would just move out of the state before the test LOL. Really, really bad premise and it left me rolling my eyes because it's hard to buy in to characters loosing their lives or their kids lives when all they have to do is move to any of the other 49 states and they'll live happily ever after. While the main male character (a youtuber) isn't very believable, his female counterpart is pretty good and deserved a better script. All in all, not worth a watch, but might be a good time waster if nothing else to do...especially for teens.
