Now, I’m going to be reviewing my personal favourite, The Hunger Games!
The Hunger Games, released in 2012, was directed by gary Ross.
It stars teenage heart-throb Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence as the main two characters, Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen.
The movie is about a nation-wide competition. One girl and one boy must be chosen from each district to survive the gruelling life-death battle, ‘The Hunger Games’. Katniss’ younger sister, Primrose, is chosen for the competition. Unable to bear the thought of her sister going through such torment, Katniss volunteers herself as tribute. Also chosen from this district is Peeta Mellark, who develops feelings for Katniss. They must battle this competition together, find food and water on their own, provide themselves with shelter and avoid getting killed. they successfully do so, but they are the only two left in the competition. The original rules of the game is that only one comes out alive, but out of their love for eachother, they both decide to take poisonous berries at the same time. Just as they are about to eat them, the host of the show calls them off and announces that they can both survive and they become the winners of the Hunger Games.
My Review: I thought the movie was great, from start to finish I couldn’t get my eyes off the screen! I loved how for this special condition, Peeta and Katniss could both survive; I think it really showed how strong love can make anything happen. The competition was a little too extreme but that’s what made it so suspenseful. Overall, was a great movie but the only negative point was that Katniss would end up being stuck in between Peeta and Gale, whom both love her dearly, and I think she shouldn’t have left Gale.. afterall, he was heartbroken!
My Star Rating: 4.5/5
