The Hunger Games (2012)

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part 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. The world will be watching.

    This movie is wonderful, however, I recommend ages 13 and up. The content is inhumane because the premise is for kids to kill each other for the sport of the capital. Based in a futuristic society allows the storyline to progress in a way that could only be fictitious. The book and movie closely tie together so not much is made up only for the movie. The actors did a great job of transporting you to the districts and Panem! I enjoyed this movie a lot but I recommend reading the books first.

                    This book was just amazing! There was action, adventure, and reality in some parts. The characters were very serious and I feel that this was needed to make the movie how it was. I would recommend this book to anybody that likes action but if you don't like seeing dead people, then this isn't for you at all!

                      This is one of my favorite movies and book ever. There is 16 year old Katniss and her little sister who is chosen to take part in the Hunger Games. A deadly competition where only one can survive . Katniss, decided to play for her sister but it's a big especially since everyone's fighting to survive and win. But there's another boy named Petra who becomes one of her friends during the games but eventually they separate and Katniss is fighting for her life so she can go back home. But she likes Petra a lot so maybe they could both survive and win the games.
