Directed by: Gary Ross Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth “A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous. A spark is fine, as long as it’s contained.’ President Snow This was one of the well-known quotes within the pic “The Hunger Games.” Katniss Everdeen, the picture’s hero, best encapsulated this minor spark that the President was talking about. He might be right in communicating that more than enough hope is hazardous. But he is wrong in positing that even a flash of hope can be contained. Story “The Hunger Games” happened in Panem, a modern city made out of twelve destroyed Districts serving a totalitarian legislature, settled at the Capitol. The people from the twelve Districts once tried to oust this savage legislature, but they fizzled. To punish this disobedience, the government decided that each year, kids from 12 to eighteen years would be taken from every District, to battle in an outdoor arena until only one of them remains standing. Yearly, this rivalry was televised to be seen by the whole country, to the happiness of the occupants of the Capitol. One of the 2 selected for District was Katniss Everdeen. The picture rotates around her experiences. Actors and Characters The picture was full of interesting and great actors and they were brilliant in their depictions. Jennifer Lawrence was perfect as Katniss, radiating enough engagingness. Woody Harrelson was amazing as Katniss’ coach. Donald Sutherland was stunning as President Snow.
Violence For a PG-13, this is violent. It is best to not let kids watch this picture, in my assessment. The director did his best to show less violence in this picture, in any case I still think it isn’t for teenagers. Soundtrack It would’ve been extraordinary to get Taylor Swift’s ‘Safe and Sound’ in one scene, regardless, the music that were utilized were flabbergasting. Here’s the soundtrack list:
