Stop with the comparisons already, ‘Hunger Games‘ is far from ‘Twilight‘ and even better. If you thought this was going to be another cheesy love struck teen flick about mythical species glistening in the sunlight then I suggest you read the book and watch the film to understand just what exactly is going on. ‘The Hunger Games‘ is a dystopian novel/film depicting the formation of various groups. Apparently, a youngest is chosen to represent his/her region and is sent to participate in the ‘Hunger Games’, a strategic and very much horrific survival of the fitness challenge where people will die.
I truly enjoyed the film and like most I watched it before reading the book regardless of the raving reviews the series had received, along with winding up on the New York Times Best Selling list. Anyways, I have to admit I did expect the movie to corny because the main characters were teens experiencing a blossoming love but put all that aside and you’ll also be entertained by the action sequences as well.
I recommend that you go see it if you haven’t and definitely support Jennifer Lawrence, Amandla Stenberg, Liam Hemsworth, and the other rising young stars. Check out the widely popular trailer below if you’re not in the loop:
