  • Reality TV in movie form, the whole scenario is just too contrived for me. This is the old "Gladiator" trick of manipulating the audience into feeling they are invested in fighting the cruelty of a violent spectacle while they are in fact enjoying it in providing the conflict in the movie. The use of handheld camera is pretty amateurish and nauseating too.

To be honest, I thought it would at least be clever in its resolution but it just kind of fizzles out.

  • Really enjoyed this movie
