Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Panem is divided into 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, brutal retribution for a past rebellion, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors while the citizens of Panem are required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives.Written by
When the shot of the pre-Games "tribute scoreboard" switches from a close-up to a wide shot of the betting area, the board has changed significantly; the images of the Tributes are gone and the odds for each of them have changed. Rue's odds, for example, instantly change from a dire 60-1 to a quite impressive 7-1 chance of winning. See more »
Before I start, I've not read the 3 books associated with this film.
I watched The Hunger Games on the weekend, and it's an OK movie edited for kids. Suzanne Collins denies any knowledge of Battle Royale, but the duplication is embarrassing. As the phrase goes, "there's nothing new in Hollywood" and this is evident throughout this film from start to finish.
Please watch the original Battle Royale which is 1000% times better than this, watered down, made to make millions Hollywood creation.
This film does not deserve the hype surrounding it, but I just hope the millions this film generates is funnelled into some new and exciting not the same crap often expected from Hollywood.
