Hunger Games - Movie Review

Last Friday was the premier for the movie The Hunger Games. It was based on the book by Suzanne Collins, which is the first and best book in the trilogy. Several months ago i listened to the audio books for all three. The first book was definitely the best, but the 2nd and 3rd were good too.

It stars a girl named Katniss who has to fight to the death against other kids from the 12 districts. It was set in the future but it reminded me of communist Russia, where everyone in lives in poverty except people from the Capital.

The movie was almost 2.5 hours long and was actually really good. Though it seemed rushed near the end. But as with all movies that are based on books, like Harry Potter, they always have to cut out several scenes and characters. Otherwise it would be a 6 hour movie.

thumbs up rating
