The Hunger Games (Blu-ray Disc, 2012, 2-Disc Set)
This movie is first and before all a story about how even a seemingly powerless person can horribly hurt a tyrannic regime with a magic potion made of lots of courage, an ice-cold determination, a great personal dignity, a little compassion, a handful of flowers, a couple of tears and one defiant and powerful gesture... The powerful message and excellent scenario are not the only reasons why I consider "Hunger Games" as a masterpiece. Actors were selected very carefully and they perform well. Jennifer Lawrence is simply perfect - there is no other word to describe her performance! However, after seeing her in "Winter's Bone" and "X-Men: First class" I didn't expect anything less. But the real surprise in this movie comes from Josh Hutcherson who plays Peeta Mellark, the boy tribute from District 12. His character is more difficult to play, because Peeta is in the same time more limited but also more complicated than Katniss. Josh Hutcherson could have very easily fall in one of the many traps which are build in Peeta's character. By overacting or underacting he could have make him a wimp or a passive follower or an immature kid, but he avoided those snares with grace and his Peeta comes out of this movie as a surprisingly complexe and also a very likeable character. He is certainly not a hero and a fighter like Katniss - but until the very end he preserves his honor, in a deadly place where he shouldn't ever be send. The games themselves are very skillfully described and are a very dramatic tale, full of surprises and twists. There are still many more good things to say about this movie, but I believe you should discover them by yourself. One more thing however about the book - it is of course possible to see and greatly enjoy this movie without reading the book, but I believe that reading the novel first is a good idea. This movie is a masterpiece!
a great movie to pickup and get worth the time to get and watch
when the hunger games played theaters in march it posted the biggest opening in history for a movie released outside of summer. while there is no direct correlation between box office success and quality, the numbers are worth reporting, especially the hunger games is a blockbuster that is actually good. truth told 2012 has been an excellent year for blockbuster movies. the avengers and the dark knight rises also boast a nice mix of quality spectacle and audience approval, but it was the hunger games that got the ball rolling. as impressive as the box office totals are, they probably weren't a surprise to fans of suzanne collins' hunger games novels. the books are breakout hits in multiple countries, meaning the movie reached theaters with a built in audience. the hunger games is the first entry in collins' three story set, which takes place in panem, a post apocalyptic version of north america. the country comprises a wealthy capital city and 12 poverty stricken districts. as penance for past rebellion, each district is forced to sacrifce one boy and one girl to and annual gladiator like contest known as the hunger games. the contest is televised much like today's reality tv programs, but the stakes are much higher than survivor or the bachelor. in this game show, the contestants fight to the death. the heroine of the film is katniss everdeen (jennifer lawerence) a smart athletic 16 year old who volunteers for the games as a replacement for her meek younger sister, who was chosen by lottery. as the movie progresses, director gary ross (seabiscuit and pleasentville) walks viewers through katniss' journey, step by step. first, the contestants are treated like celebrities as they're trotted onto talk shows for all of panem to see. then, they get a brief introduction to combat and survival skills before being thrown into a massive outdoor arena where they must fight each other and number of artificially constructed dangers. two sequels are planned in this series and this one is worth picking up and watching. if you have not seen it get this movie. if you have read the books get the movie. this movie is worth getting
Deep with emotion and thrills! This years Twilight but better!
The Hunger Games was a awesome movie! Forget Twilight, this movie was more thrilling and intense. I have never read any of the books but the movie makes me want more. With a amazing story and amazing cast with some newcomers and Woody Harrelson, the thrills in this movie will leave you breathless. The characters are lovable and hard to choose from and the effects are very well crafted. The Hunger Games is dark and deep filled with emotion and thrills!!.
I heard of this movie and thought it would be like Twilight. But I was wrong. It is like the Running Man, but with Teenagers. This movie rocks. I would reccomend this movie to my friends
