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 »
OK, its low budget but that does not effect its premise. It has awful glitches as in the clock saying 10.10am and after a two hour test the clock still says 10.10am......BUT!! This is a blockbuster of an idea that could well be put into practice in the near future. Its notion is horrific but potential in this barbaric world we live in these days.
The acting is strong and commendable and the pace is good and keeps you wanting more.
Its cliché in places, predictable but in my view is well worth the watch; especially if you wear a tin hat like me!
All in all a solid low budget thriller that will have you thinking about the future that just might be around the corner for us all.
