I understand there is a sequel made for this film; I do not know how wise that is because there will not be the same suspense element that this one had. This film is both tragic and scary. It is tragic because there is a chance that part of the strategy of this film may be initiated by the government at some point in the future. We already have tremendous pressure on our young adults with standardized testing like the SAT, GMAT and several other thinning devices. It is not hard to imagine more stringent ones down the line. However, when it comes to population control; it probably would not start with high school students; it would start with prisons. All the prisons in a country could easily be eliminated and turned into slave labor, like the people in this film. But that entire population is less than 1% of the population. We would have to come up with 4.5% from other sources. Hospitals could provide some. Old age homes could add to the number, and eliminating politicians could make up the rest of the difference. Most likely, however, if there were a real MATH elimination of the world's students, China would hardly be affected at all, and the US would probably lose over 9% of their high school students; but that wont happen anytime soon. Good luck with that idea.
