The sci-fi thriller The Hunger Games, based on the best-selling epic novels, is set in the ruins of what was once North America. Every year the Capitol of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in The Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which these 24 "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains. When her little sister is picked to compete, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) volunteers in her place.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson). If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Also starring Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Toby Jones, Wes Bentley and Lenny Kravitz.

Iv read all the books and thought they were amazing, the kind of books you just don't want to put down so when i saw there was a movie coming i was excited but hoping it wouldnt be a let down as i loved the books but luckily the movie was amazing too. If you enjoyed the books then seen this or if you enjoyed the movie then read the books!!

 Almost faultless

I've not been so impressed by a film since the Dark Knight. As per a previous review I was concerned that it was too much the same kind of crowd as watching Twilight movies of which I am not a fan at all. No need to worry as this is completely different and in a league of it's own. Good story and decent acting where you actually care about the characters. Particularly like Woody Harrelson, he's been back on form last few films. Definitely the best film of the year so far!!!

I cannot wait for the other two movies. The first installments of the three books was just brilliant. I feel the acting and the chemistry was just brilliant, also the pace of the movie was spot on, this is not one of those movies were you just enjoy the action scenes. This is a movie were you also enjoy the build up to the start of the Hunger Games. I would say one of the best movies not of the year, not of the decade, but of my LIFETIME, I would certainly say you give this a watch. Cannot wait for the DVD. Which hopefully should include some background on how this gem was made.

 Not Such A Royal Battle!

Set in a Dystopian Future the Government installs fear into the people by hosting the Hunger Games! Exactly the same concept as Battle Royale only the Hunger Games is inappropriately aimed at teens!!

 Amazing film!

I read this book in a day so obviously I couldnt wait for the film to come out in the cinema. The book is fantastic and I strongly suggest that everyone reads it.
I will give you my only negative point first. All thought the film was fabulous I did feel that some of the books vital information was left out. I do however think that this was down to the age limit of the film and possibly the budget. Maybe the age limit should have been increased slightly to allow for more detail???
Apart from that this film is brilliant and even though the concept is very dark the film makers handle this very well and ensure that the main emphasis is on the on-going action and not the death of the people in the film. The pace of the film is really well timed and doesnt leave you sitting there wishing it would hurry up and get to the point and the acting chemistry between the young actors was brilliant each one was exactly how you imagine them to be after reading the book.
I would highly recommend this film and cant wait for the next one to come out as the second book is just as good!
