... to extract a conclusion and hence an accurate rating, despite the decent scenario and acting. Many philosophies, many religions, many axioms, many ideological implementations in believers, different emotional aspects, non-believers and governments, many ways to act upon choices. The final act is reminiscent of absurdity and avoids addressing the core issue in everything: Everything can be resolved non-absurdly only through money. The key issue therefore, shouda been, who has the money. It is unimportant how/why anybody else acts upon choice. So what exactly are we supposed to conclude after watching this movie? You guessed it. Nothing. So 5/10 because the probability between any two completely opposing views is 1/2, as well (which is close to the general imdb rating).
