Samuel L. Jackson,
Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to compete.
Six months after winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and her partner Peeta Mellark must go on what is known as the Victor's Tour, wherein they visit all the districts, but before leaving, Katniss is visited by President Snow who fears that Katniss defied him a year ago during the games when she chose to die with Peeta. With both Katniss and Peeta declared the winners, it is fueling a possible uprising. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger. Written by
At the bottom corner of a monitor that President Snow uses to watch if Katniss is to kill a tribute in the arena you can see the famous characters "A-113" which relates to the same reference in all Pixar films and associates. See more »
When Katniss hammers the spile into the tree, the spile is perpendicular to the tree, then when she is drinking the water coming from the spile, the spile is angled downward. See more »
Your very first experience with this film is with the dialogue which should leave you wondering what level audience this film is trying to reach. I would guess any barely functioning ninth grader was their max literacy marketing level. Acting was robotic with actors chosen for eye candy appeal. Plot wise The Hunger Games "starving" comes from a lack of creative storytelling; just far-fetched improbabilities filling 3/4ths of film then to close with the same old ending we've seen before, i.e. brief, boring scenes of someone quickly (for budgetary reasons) dying. Even then you really don't see much of that person's finale - they just cheaply disappear. Even the lack of an ending/closure is transparent storytelling for profit.
Watch "The Starving Games" spoof/parody of this movie for it's spot-on exposure of the juvenile mass marketing appeal of this movie.
