In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Panem is divided into 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, brutal retribution for a past rebellion, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors while the citizens of Panem are required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss’ young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives.
User Reviews: Reading a lot of crying people that the movies isn’t at par with the fabulous book. Didn’t read the book. The movie however, the story line is similar from the Japanese movie ‘Battle Royale’. So this was an remake with an twist? There is one similarity of these two movies, both have the same cheap feel and looks. Although i liked this setting much more, it was more appealing.
What i didn’t liked is at some part i got the feeling i was watching Avatar with the shots in the Arena control room.
The movie is too short or the first half is to long and not much time left fro the second part. I got the feeling it was been rushed to much at the end. The fist part, everything was been buildup nicely, after-then all seems to be rushed and no time for better involving within the arena.
Anyway, it’s a nice movie to watch, i give it a 6.5
