This is an interesting topic and how pharmaceuticals drug approval is practised merits critical attention. However, it would have been a really excellent movie if the oppressive atmosphere during the experimental phase would have been depicted without making the hospital staff resemble as prison guards (or maybe even worse: concentration camp guards). In the current form, the plot appears too stereotypical, too shallow, and unrealistic.
One may wonder at the end how Testing Life Ii will turn out? Will Ans Suess ever have any remorse that she scammed the social system back in Berlin? Will she maybe come to realize that struggling for survival can typically be much more brutal in L.A. than back in Berlin? And finally, even though a bit of a stretch too far: What will she think about individuals sentenced to death and being - intentionally - killed with pharmaceutical cocktails in her dreamland (quoting Ana Suess: "...the land of the free and the land of the braves")?
