The Hunger Games

To the nation of Panem, one male tribute and one female tribute between the ages of 12 and 18 must represent their district in the annual Hunger Games. A total of 24 for tributes are placed in an arena designed by the gamemakers, and only one comes out alive.

The Tributes

When 12-year-old Primrose Everdeen is selected as the female tribute for District 12, her older sister Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteers to take her place. She and the baker’s son Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) are shipped off to the Capitol of Panem where they are wined, dined and decorated in the most elaborate costumes. For the people of the Capitol, it is just a sport, but for the tributes and their mentors, it is a game of strategy and survival.

Star-Crossed Lovers

With the help of their alcoholic mentor, Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Katniss and Peeta win the hearts of viewers by representing themselves before and during the games as star-crossed lovers. But for one of them, showing their love for the other isn’t just an act.

The Bottom Line

The Hunger Games movie was very true to the books. Unfortunately, if you’ve read them, you might find yourself disappointed. You’ll spend the majority of the film comparing the details to those in the story. Because the book was seen through the eyes of Katniss, the movie wasn’t able to capture some of the important personal relationships. However, if you haven’t read the books, or it’s been a while since you’ve read them, you’ll love the film and its elaborate, unique qualities.

The Hunger Games Movie Rating: 4
