The Hunger Games [Movie Review]
Hello Everyone, I caught The Hunger Games movie with Baby today and I must say, it is absolutely one of the best movies that I have watched in the last 4 months! Thanks to Baby for the movie treat because I have been ranting on and on about why we should catch The Hunger Games. By the way, the movie is rated PG and given the slight violence in the film, I would recommend it for those above 14 years of age.
By the way, in case you don't know, The Hunger Games movie is actually adapted from the novel, "The Hunger Games" written by Suzanne Collins and it was published on 14 September 2008. [that was like more than 3 years ago!] And having caught the movie today [yes on April Fool's Day], I really can't wait for the next movie sequel to be out! In fact, I have every good intentions to purchase the novel and read it.
Well, here's the movie plot [from Golden Village] site:
"The Hunger Games" chronicles a dystopic Capitol which requires its twelve subjugated districts to pay tribute in the form of a teenage boy and girl, forced to participate in the annual "Hunger Games," a fight-to-the-death live televised event. Katniss Everdeen's little sister is chosen in the lottery to participate and Katniss volunteers to take her place. Although persevering through hardship is commonplace for Katniss, she must start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love in order to win the games and return home.
What we liked about the movie:
We really liked the storyline and seriously, the movie was quite touching and emotional. In fact, I was so engrossed with the movie that at one point, I actually dropped my whole popcorn bucket! And well, the setting of the movie was perfect and the actors acted pretty well. If you haven't read the novel, don't worry that you would not be able to understand the movie. In fact, I would recommend that you catch the movie first, and then embark on your journey to reading the novel.
What others say about the movie:
Many people whom we spoke to gave two thumbs up for the movie. There were also a few people whom said that the movie removed some crucial aspects/components of the novel and as a result, wasn't as fantastic as the details as described in the novel.
