The Hunger Games

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10 Based on 1 Review

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games.  A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.  If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Based on the popular novel by Suzanne Collins.

    Pros:

    * Engaging enough to keep all ages entertained.\u000a* Violence has been toned down to make it suitable for children and teenagers .\u000a* Production values are excellent.\u000a* Fans will find it very faithful to the original book.

    Cons:

    * The complexity and conflictedness of the novel's characters (especially Katniss) is not fully conveyed by the movie.

    Overall:

    This is a rollicking good yarn that does not flag and is filled with action, suspense and moving moments. I had not heard of the hype around this novel but after seeing the film, I was motivated to read the entire trilogy. A great adventure yarn which poses deeper questions about the nature of government, revolution and personal sacrifice. Highly recommended.
