TMG Scale 0.0 MPAA Rating: PG-13
Starring Stanley Tucci, Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks
Despite great acting performances by Jennifer Lawrence and Woody Harrelson, there is no excuse for this book or this movie. Watching children kill each other for adults twisted pleasure? Yeah, sure. That’s a cool thing. The only twisted things missing from this film were Nicolas Cage and Adam Sandler. This film is simply a new and depraved version of The Truman Show (1998). Show a pair of woman’s boobs in a film and get an R rating. Show kids slitting each others throats and PG-13 is good enough. We certainly don’t want the bully’s at the local junior high to miss this one.
Our country is about to go to civil war because a Hispanic and a Black guy got in a fight and one got killed. The same people screaming their lungs out over this tragedy are handling $20 to 13 years old to go see this film and eat gummy bears. Go figure.
It is all disturbing and irresponsible. What’s next? How about Holocaust survivor betting games? Better yet,…infant molestation on video in the nursery? Sure. Tell me I am wrong here.
