Why would they need to thin the kids with lower IQs? Laina's mother has what appears to be cancer, why would she not be "thinned", as well as all other sick and elderly people? Does this mean all children born with birth/mental defects are thinned at birth? See more »

You don't want to fail this test.
24 October 2016 | by FilmGeek22See all my reviews

I really enjoyed it. The planet is running out of resources and the government has developed this method of "Thinning" out the population by administering a test to students each year until graduation. The film displays a lot of fear. Fear among fellow students who are worried about failing and perspectives from other characters such as teachers and guards who experience this event every year. While there are some scenes where you are questioning the authenticity, I will remind you this is a movie. It's great because:

The story line flowed well and the film has plenty of suspense scenes.

The cinematography is well done.

The characters are likable (most). This film has the potential to spin off a couple sequels. Check it out.
