The movie 31 follows a group of friends(?) that are travelling across the country. The movie starts off very raunchy. It seems that every woman (except for maybe Venus) is a complete slut, and every man is a complete pig. What an awesome way to start off a movie when trying to grasp my attention... just kidding. Anyway, so this group of people are travelling and they get stopped in the middle of nowhere by several masked men who kill half of them right off the bat, and take five back with them. To where you ask? I'm not sure. Some sort of warehouse that's dilapidated and disgusting.
Well, the premise of the movie is similar to The Purge: Anarchy. These five "contestants" have 12 hours to survive the hell that they have been put in, all for the entertainment of some rich people. Now, I liked The Purge movies, but 31 is far different when you're looking at the effects. What steers me towards not liking it is I felt like this movie was all over the place. They go from a bathroom that's falling apart to a hallway filled with pipes to a creepy room with clowns back to a hallway filled with pipes. I just had the hardest time following this movie, I didn't feel like there was any transition whatsoever. And then all of a sudden they are outside... Why did they not go outside earlier?
How did that midget overcome a group people for that long? And what the heck happened in the end? Did she live, did she die, did she have to fight him one on one, did he recruit her for next year? I don't understand how you can end a movie like that. Lastly, why do the game-makers dress like they are from the 1700's and what is with that star table (see picture above)?
The "sex" character: did anyone else think she looked and sounded like a tiny Dolly Parton?
Overall, I'm going to give this movie a "Hated It." I didn't like the flow of it at all, I didn't really like the fact that it supposedly took place in the 70's (what was the point in that?), and I didn't like all the raunchy sex scenes. Sorry. I don't recommend this movie.
