    Sounds like a rereading of the purge films. Honestly, the story just sounds dumb. If you want a film or a couple of films that deal with violence in intriguing ways I can suggest

    Battle Royale
    The Raid Films
    Seven Samurai
    The Mad Max films
    Robocop
    Nausicaa
    Etc

    Battle Royale is probably the film that comes closest to the one in the OP, but I can't remember if there was a socio-political element to that film, or if the kids were randomly chosen. Never seen Nausicaa though.

    I don't recall there being one, in Battle Royale. Been a while, though.
    I DENOUNCE DONALD J. TRUMP AND ALL HIS IMMORAL ACTS.

    There was some political stuff in battle royals, but it was more a film about how people can be turned against each other.
    Danganronpa also comes to mind.

    Right, it's essentially a very violent Japanese version of Lord of the Flies that was eventually tamed and remade into Hunger Games.

    Never heard of it. Annnnd....just looked it up and it's anime, which explains why I haven't.

    To be honest this film will have much the same reaction that I got from the purge films namely a shrug as I go back to play fire emblem.
