Hunger Games Review

Quite often, movies that are made from novels end up as a disappointment. However, the film "The Hunger Games" is the contrary.

"The Hunger Games" is a Science Fiction action film that stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, and Elizabeth Banks was released in theatres on March 23.

Directed by Gary Ross, "The Hunger Games" is truly a major success financially and by the cinematography. After watching the film, I was bedazzled at how the Director took the film to the next level.

Jennifer Lawrence's character is definitely someone to look up to for young girls, with her character's sacrifice, bravery, and doing what's right even if it means giving up her own life or even starting a revolution.

Every year, the evil nation of Panem makes all twelve districts give a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a nationally shown event in which they must battle and fight with each other until there is only one survivor remaining.

Katiness (Jennifer Lawrence) is forced to go against others who have prepared for the Hunger Games for their entire lives. She uses her instinct as well as some training to survive. If Katiness ever makes it back home, she must make important choices in the arena that will hopefully help her through. 

Overall, this film is a great one to watch. It keeps you at the edge of your seat and is definitely worth the money.

The film has already brought in over $450 million from the box office worldwide.
