Good, not great, adaptation of the first chapter of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian trilogy; novel’s scenes of brutal violence were toned down to avoid an ‘R’ rating, and Jennifer Lawrence is a little too well-fed and shiny to convincingly portray the desperate denizen of an oppressed, poverty-stricken district.

WATCH IT IT IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NUMBER 1 PEOPLE ARE AMAZING ACTORS CANT WAIT FOR THE SECOND MOVIE

Set in the future after a nuclear war the country is divided into twelve districts that are run militarily and politically from the capitol. As a memorial to the war and its chaotic aftermath an annual ritual, the hunger games, is staged and televised. Two tributes, one male and one female, are selected from each district to participate in the hunger games.The tributes are introduced in the capital and they receive last minute training and sponsors. Under the rules the hunger games is a death match using the supplies and weapons provided with only one survivor.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this as I didn't read any of the books, but I instantly fell in love with it. Jennifer Lawrence once again proves that she is an extremely talented actress. I would highly recommend this to science fiction fans, as well as fans of Lawrence as she is fantastic as always.

Cato: Go on! Shoot, and we both go down and you win. Go on. I'm dead anyway. I always was, right? I couldn't tell that until now. How's that, is that what they want? I can still do this... I can still do this. One more kill. It's the only thing I know how to do, bringing pride to my district. Not that it matters.

Peeta Mellark: I just keep wishing I could think of a way to show them that they don't own me. If I'm gonna die, I wanna still be me. Does it make any sense? Katniss Everdeen: Yeah. I just can't afford to think like that.
