Reasons for a declined review?

How does one find out why a review has been declined? I've read my (declined) review several times and can find no reason, and no clue is given by IMDB. There's no swearing, no abuse of actors etc, and it's marked as having spoilers. I'm confused.

Title: Okay, then turned to shite.

There are a number of things wrong with this movie, but all are overwhelmed by the profoundly stupid ending.

Let's see: our heroine sees the shooter forcing a student carried a drum of something down a hallway. Minutes later there's an explosion. She's told that the shooter was dead, burnt to a crisp in the explosion, meaning unidentifiable. Is that likely when the shooter was in control? How could he accidentally blow himself up? And why does our heroine not ask what happened to the student? This seems of no importance to her. Then she sees a man in a cap disappear into the brush and immediately knows that this is the shooter who's somehow survived. She doesn't seem to need to think about it; she just knows. So she says nothing to the Police. Why? Instead she limps off after the guy (did no one care about her injury? Or is she so much of a heroine she doesn't need medical treatment?) who conveniently stops nearby to retrieve something or other in a creek, and shoots him? Why? Why couldn't she take him prisoner? Why doesn't he hear her limping through the brush? Why do movies that otherwise maintain a slight semblance of reality for most of their length sink into unbelievability at the end. Just...why?

I was kind of enjoying this movie until it turned to shite.

@pp312​ My guess is that the word "shite" might not be allowed in reviews.

I think you may be right---I'll change it. I'm in Australia, where, as in Britain, we say shite instead of the other word. In other words, it's a euphemism. Apparent not in America.   --Thanks.
