The Thinning Description

In the near future, every nation in the world has to eliminate 5% of their population, as mandated by the United Nations. The United States chose THE THINNING -- the act of eliminating students in every grade who scores a C or lower. Schools annually go under a lock-down procedure in which all students take a standardized test. The Thinning became the prevailing method in the United States as it was heavily backed by powerful political figures. The PR spin that helped to sell most civilians is that it "Keeps America competitive and ahead in Innovation".Blake, 17, finds himself at odds with the status quo. The son of a powerful Governor, Blake intends to send a message to the country by purposefully failing his final exam and being sent to the thinning. Blake's father Dean, 42, is a staunch supporter of the Thinning and will do whatever it takes to defend it… even having his son’s failed exam switched with another student’s passing exam. Laina, 17, a diligent, hard-working student, has worked her entire life to be the best in her class. Laina is rattled to find out that she did not make the grade and will be sent to the thinning, leaving her two younger siblings behind. Unwilling to die unjustly, Laina escapes the shackles of euthanasia to prove her own innocence and vows to uncover the truth. Once Blake purposefully fails the test but finds out he has passed, he and Laina begin to investigate and uncover an elaborate conspiracy behind the scenes of the government and the entire thinning program.

"Twinning" is an arc'd competition series in which twelve sets of twins will go head to head for a grand prize of $222,222.22. But getting there won't be easy. Viewers will experience double the meltdowns, double the hook-ups, and, of course, double the twists when twin teams are pushed to their limits in unexpected ways.

The Thinning Movie Reviews

  • Are you kidding me?!

    This is the worst movie I think i have ever watched. If you are over 12 years old you will hate this movie....AWFUL.
  • Really, really bad

    How can anyone with any level of sense think this movie was good? I suppose if you’re a kid who’s parents just started you watch television, this might pass...otherwise, I’ve seen better content on Nickelodeon. Fake reviews or a bunch of bored middle schoolers.
  • 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼🙏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    Reading and writing

  • Fake reviews

    OMG Fake Reviews
    Fake reviews
  • beware....

    ...these reviews??? Are FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!!
  • Fair idea, poorly executed

    The idea is interesting for a distopian future in America. However, it would never, NEVER go down like this. My wife, daughter and I laughed and made jokes at this movie all the way through it. Not on par with Hunger Games, Maze Runner or sadly, not even close to The Giver. This was clearly a very low budget film. None of the shots showed large sets. There were no explosions, helecopters, driving scenes etc. It all took place in rooms, hallways and classrooms. When a political speech was given, the camera showed a dull shot of a stadium full of people and then a shot of the speaker in front of an American flag. We're talking waay low budget here. In all fairness, it had an interesting premise and obviously left it open for a sequel. Hopefully, they will have a bigger budget and more experience to up their game if they do another.
  • Awesome

    Bla blab bla
  • I rarely give poor reviews...

    But ... ridiculous. I'm so sorry.
  • Way better than expected!

    I just bought this movie on a lark because I am a fan of the dystopian future genre. Sure the promise smacks of The Purge series, but it definitely tells its own story effectively. I kind of expected a badly made and worse acted teenybopper movie, but got a lot more than I bargained for. It was overall, a very solid flick, with action and suspense throughout, and a twist on the ending. My only suggestion is that the governor’s name should have been “Gulia”. So that’s what the “bad guy” from “The Wedding Singer” has been up to. Ha ha. But really, if you like the genre, check this one out…
  • Best movie ever

    I can't wait for a second movie dose any one know when it's coming out . OMG🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼❤️❤️
  • Logan Paul

    Derp waddles
    It has Logan Paul.

    They should really make a second movie!! All the actors did amazing job in it!
  • Can wait for part 2

    Loved how they set it up for part 2 at the end. Great movie #LOGANG #beamaverick
  • Dont waste money

    Worst movie ever. All these 5 stars are fake. I wish i didnt rent it. The worst lazy story and horrible acting. Cheaply made stupid movie.
  • This made me cry

    This movie is absolutely amazing, and i'm not saying this because of Logan Paul and Peyton List starring in it. I'm saying this because the movie truly hit me in the heart, yes if i were to be over the movie i would have made a different ending. But overall the movie was so good. I rated this four stars because it shows that everything doesn't always have a happy ending, but in the end there is something to smile about. I would recommend this to anybody over the age of 14 due to the movie having some sexual content and language in it.
  • RileyTRC on YouTube lol

    I love Logan Paul, and I was really happy to see him act so amazingly in The Thinning. I thought he was dead, along with Ellie, but I was very surprised to see that they were still alive. He saw Ellie and then the movie ended. I was saying to myself, "THERE NEEDS THE BE A SEQUEL TO THE THINNING!!!!!!"
