The wait is over! The worldwide box office phenomenon, The Hunger Games is available to own on Blu-ray, DVD or for download August 17.
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation 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 “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
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. 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.
My family and I loved the movie. We have already watched it a few times. It is thought provoking and keeps you engaged the whole time.
Plenty of action but most of the violence is implied rather than graphic.
All the usual human frailties and strengths are there and Catniss makes a very cute warrior princess.
It is very clear at the end that the story will continue in a sequel even if you are not familiar with the books.
Looking forward to the next one.
This was a really great movie, very much like the book! Jennifer Lawrence is a great actress and played a fabulous Katniss Everdeen. Donald Sutherland/ Woody Harrelson/Liam Hemsworth and Lenny Kavitz only a few of the cast that made this this great novel into a very well made movie.
