Clothing


Sorry if this has been asked already.. So where did the "Tethered" get their distressed matching clothes? That made no sense. Did they go shopping for the same outfits and then distress their clothing? Kinda took me out of the film for second.

Lol yeah, they just randomly had like millions of those red jumpsuits on hand along with matching scissors and a single brown glove for everyone underground, the movie made no attempt to explain how they all got those outfits or all those scissors.

I mean there was, correct me if i'm wrong, clones of everyone in America right? So theres around 327.2 million people in the U.S, and if there was really clones of everyone then they would have needed to get 327.2 million red jumpsuits and scissors for all of them, its just absurd when you think about it.

It would be fine if they was all just in random clothing with different weapons, but the fact that every single one of them all had the same outfit and weapon was a bit comical and ridiculous.

Yeah, the whole jumpsuit thing was also strange. But I was talking about the normal clothes they had on. Remember when Adelaide goes down to the fun house, she has on a Thriller Micheal Jackson shirt and Red also had on a Thriller shirt but her's was distressed. If you noticed everyone one of the clones had on the same outfits as the people on top.

Oh i thought you was talking about the jumpsuits, but yeah i didn't think about that, theres just so much stuff in this movie thats unexplained and seems impossible, i didn't hate the movie but theres just so much stuff like this that theres no explanation for.

To me its a very bad job on the writers part to have all this stuff in there and provide no explanation for it, you might as well have had a alien walking around in the background, why not? you don't explain any of this other stuff. Its easy to just put down on paper something like them all having matching clothing to their counterparts, but if you can't explain why then it shouldn't be in there.

I get not needing everything explained and letting some stuff be a mystery, but simple shit like them all having matching clothing to their counterparts should be explained, cause you know what it tells me when it isn't? it tells me the writer couldn't think of any plausible explanation so he just left it unexplained. Which again is a bad job of writing and its lazy.

I wondered that too. And how did the boy get a burn mask?

I think their answer would be the whole movie is meant as an allegory a la 'Mother!', but yeah it was badly explained and poor overall.
