Clever, but shallow

I picked up this movie at Barnes and Noble - the store seems to be one of the last bastions of alternate titles in DVD. My only complaint is that the premium for carrying these movies is too high.

The movie is a satire of the current reality tv shows. This movie is very much like watching a cross between Cops and Survivor. Instead of voting people off the island, to win at this game, you must kill your opponents. There are darkly comedic moments, but the TV style delivery of this movie keeps you from connecting with the characters.

Somewhat disposable, this film's message is delivered rather quickly. It reminded me of other one note songs like Blair Witch.
