"I'm assuming that parts of this film are meant as satire, but I'll be damned if I can tell what the target is supposed to be."

Damned is fine, hon. (Any critics with critical thinking skills on "Slant Magazine"'s staff?)

It's just great filmmaking, Chuck. That's how they get the audience to take the film seriously.

Great filmmaking? More like killing off children violently for entertainment. It was poorly made.

Maybe the punchline in your review is the ability to fool everybody into taking you seriously. The movie was at least a whole lot better than the hunger games even though made 12 years ago.
