Film Review: The World is Watching The Hunger Games

The world is watching The Hunger Games.

Suzanne Collins’s gripping series of a dystopian society whose government marches their children off to fight to the death has hit the big screen. The adaptation captures the essence of Panem and its districts, the control of the Capitol, and the brutality of the arena – all while foreshadowing how the game of survival eventually ripples into the start of a rebellion. Riveting and real, the film retains the book’s intensity and sensitivity through naturalistic execution, from the swift camera movements to the stellar sound editing. Jennifer Lawrence leads the cast of exceptional actors. Her portrayal of the bold and brave Katniss Everdeen sets a new standard for empowered female characters.

Caution: The Hunger Games is sure to be a hot ticket at the theatres this month. Run, don’t walk, to the nearest showing, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
