The Hunger Games (2012)

The Hunger Games

in the future where the country was divided into 13 Districts, the Hunger Games was created. it was an annual competition where 2 teenagers were selected from each district, to participate in a television show, where they had to kill everyone else until there were only 1 survivor left. Katniss and Peeta were the selected teens from District 12. they were sent to the Capitol for a 3-days training before the games begun.

the film brought us into a world filled with poverty where violence was an expected part of life. of what was expected of the film, we were disappointed that it was extremely slow-paced and not exactly emotionally captivating. we wanted to experience the game more, but there were actually more introductions than necessary. an unanswered question was why was the game called the "Hunger" game when it has nothing to do with starving? however, once within the game, the story of Katniss' survival was absolutely engaging. her relationship with Peeta though, laid somewhere in between being a betrayer and a lover, neither that made Peeta a lovable character.
