I cannot believe that one of the reviewers (loving jinny) wrote that this movie was fun. That's just about the last word that describes it! It's thought-provoking, intelligent, violent, many things... But fun it ISN'T. Jinny, if you found this fun, you need serious help.

A suspenseful story of 24 young people fighting for their lives in the wilderness as part of an annual "game". Despite the heart-wrenching premise behind the story, I was left with a feeling of hope. Graphic violence.
when i saw this movie at Q16, i noticed that the plot was very different from most movies i watch. usually i can predict what happens, but in the hunger games, i was hanging on the edge of my seat. after watching this film, i immediately read the book which in my opinion was slightly better. my favorite part was, of course, the actual games. some parts were quite sad however.
