A wonderful cynical portrait of how the media is being used to manipulate us ! Looking back at the history of the Roman Empire, this story makes perfect sense. 'Recycle' the defeated rebel provincials, as gladiators,.. to be ritually slaughtered by each other in the Arena (aka: "Reality T.V.")! Perfectly realized production values, good acting, and an exciting engaging script !!...( P.S. - "Kev's PICkS" : If you liked The Hunger Games,..then checkout this raw and bloody Japanese romp: "Battle Royale".)

Anyone else notice that in the movie there seemed to be 25 tributes. 23 are killed, two survive.

Very good movie like the part where they come out with flames on them.

You should really read the books first, but the movie was a pretty good adaptation. The biggest issue was they did not have any narration/voice over to show the main characters thoughts--putting the viewer in the position of Capitol viewers instead of understanding why Katniss did what she did.

My friend read the books, my sister's friend, and so did my cousin. I am looking forward to watching this movie. However, my friend said that she was upset that the cat was the wrong color, LOL!

In the Distant Future lies the ruins of North America. What remains of North America is called Panem, home to the Capitol and all it's 12 districts. Dating back to the Dark Days where the Rebels tried to take over, the Capitol "maintains" control over the districts by forcing their districts to choose 1 boy and 1 girl to participate in the Capitol's Annual Hunger Games. The hunger games is a televised arena death match that airs live on TV. There can only be 1 victor in the Hunger Games.
