Movie Review ~ The Hunger Games

Adventure / Sci-Fi, released in 2012, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth

In a dystopian world, every year the government selects one boy and one girl from each district to enter a battle to the death on live television in order to remind the people who controls them. This year Katniss volunteers to take her younger sister’s place, after Primrose name is drawn. Can she survive the deadly game?


What did I think?  I read the books a couple of years ago, long enough that I had to wait for the last book to come out. They did a good job on translating the book to a movie without losing major story elements. Obviously, they had to leave things out, you can’t fit everything from such a gripping book into a two hour movie, but it was very well done.

My rating? 4 howls.
