Had a lot of potential but ultimately it was a let down
The concept of this movie seemed promising; a philosophical thought experiment where you must decide who should live and who should die, all presented in a way that was both entertaining and involving for the audience. In the end though, I came away feeling that the script had been written by two people: the first 2 thirds were written by someone who did a crash course in philosophy and had only a vague understanding of the ideas they were trying to explore, and the final third was written by someone who manages to pull off the challenge of being unbelievably self-righteous despite their IQ of 70.

At the start, it (very) quickly glances over some other thought experiments which involve conflicts of rationality and morality (5 people tied to one train track, 1 person tied to parallel track, train coming down track with 5 people, but you have a switch that will change the track the train goes down to the one with only 1 person on, do you flip the switch?). They’re well known to anyone who’s familiar with utilitarianism, but anyone who’s not covered them before will probably be left confused as to how the movie concludes immediately after asking the question that the switch flippers are murderers and offering no explanation as to why. But it’s at least getting people warmed up for actively participating in the thought experiment rather than just being passive observers.

The main thought experiment, deciding who should get to live, is pretty interesting at first. Rationality and logic will be most peoples tools for deciding; the people who bring the greatest benefit to humanity should live. The movie then tries to test the boundaries of how far you’ll stay rational for the greater good in situations which you may find immoral. Can ‘bad’ actions be justified if they’re for the greater good (e.g. dropping the atom bomb to end WW2)? While this is good in concept, the script and characters fail to pull it off in a convincing way. The characters put up fights on grounds of morality in such petty issues that they come across as just being whiny children throwing a tantrum rather than humans stretched to the limits of what they’ll do in pursuit of the greater good and finally drawing a line in what they can bear to justify to themselves as ‘the rational thing to do’.

It was the final third that really ruined the film though. Up until then it may not have been great, but it was at least trying to explore philosophical problems. But at this point the self-righteous writer who can barely spell philosophy, let alone comprehend it, takes over. They completely ignore every concept of right and wrong the film has previously been exploring. The writer goes off on their own tangent with their view of what’s ‘good’, which doesn’t seem too bad at first, except it appears to be written by someone who has never actually stopped to consider why they judge something as ‘good’. There is neither rationality nor logic behind their ideas, no concept of the greater good, in fact, you’d be hard pushed to find any interpretation of morality where the final writers ‘good’ may fit in to. It’s just selfish, unbelievably stupid and defies any kind of logic. The writer isn’t trying to write a thought provoking script, he’s trying to write a ‘feel good’ story that ignores reality and is completely unrelated to anything previously discussed in the movie. I believe the writer was trying to convey something along the lines of rationality and logic not being the gold standard when it comes to morality, but he failed in showing anyone why this might be. His attempt to show this may have actually being so poor that, inadvertently, he actually reinforced the importance of rationality.

I think the movie does deserve some credit for presenting a story that will get viewers thinking about some interesting concepts, for that I would still recommend it for people unfamiliar with philosophy, but if you are familiar with the concepts covered then I don’t think it’s worth watching as it will add nothing new to what you already know and will probably end up just irritating you.

This is just awful
This review contains spoiler.

Here is what I think this movie wanted to be: A very smart, very deep, very artistic film conveying a super important message.

And here is what I think it turned out to be: A philosophy professor tries to prove some point to his students by carrying out a thought-experiment. The class faces a nuclear apocalypse while having a bunker that would keep them safe until the radiation is gone. Sadly, this bunker can accommodate only 10 of them, so they have to decide who lives and who dies based on some information on each of them written on cards of which everyone picked one randomly. Well, the message I think they intended to tell is: People are more than what they appear to be. Wow. Every second Disney movie tells the same, only those are fun to watch. Besides, they are discussing logic in class and they are supposed to carry out the experiment by using logic. That part is an epic fail too. I mean, I understand that it’s a thought-experiment, but does it really have to be so terribly stupid? Well, let’s say we overlook all the idiot stuff they come up with as the circumstances of a nuclear holocaust, it’s only in their heads, right? Why not form it as they want. But. Many of the other decisions they have to make and could be really logical, are just, well, blehh… Just one example: this person has absolutely no usable knowledge for us but she has gold. Then, she’s in! I think I don’t have to explain what would most probably happen to her in real life… And then, the final experiment Petra comes up with is just the cheesiest thing ever. And when you think it can’t get worse, it turns out that the whole game was just a plot of the professor to separate top student, unsmiling, uptight, totally unlikable Petra from her boyfriend because he has a crush on her. And when he fails, he kills himself.

So, I think this is how bad it is. 2 hours of face-palm, eye-rolling and being mad. There is one bright spot in the dark though, namely the scenario Chips comes up with in the end. Now, that’s logic.
