Fortunately at Delta Plaza movie theater the latest film screenings at 8:15. Not to late at night if compared with other theaters. Since I haven't read The Hunger Games, so I can't decide which one is better between the book and film versions. But in my opinion, this two-hour film is worthy enough to be seen. :) We won't be bored.
So the story about a future country called Panem. There is an official national game called "The Hunger Games". This year the game has entered a season of 74. Well, The Hunger Games has become an annual event held for generations.
In a match 24 people of tribute will compete (The Hunger Games participants) from 12 districts in the Panem. They have to compete to be the only one who survived. How to be the only one to survive? Sure to kill each other among the participants.
From 12 districts elected a young couple; Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Katniss is good at archery volunteered that replace her sister who was chosen by lot.
They both went to the Capitol to the capital, where the games executed. And in the modern era, the national games such as The Hunger Games is a kind of reality show on national television. Something like American Idol.
What is similar? Namely the fact that a lot of reality in The Hunger Games is not what it appears, has been diverted in order to satisfy the audience who thirst for stories of dramatic, surprising and encouraging.
The Hunger Games is an annual event like the American Idol show, with those chosen to compete as a tribute to the most superior visible to each other. Each participant should be able to steal the hearts of the audience, and some even had to sell the story for imaging in order to win sponsors and continue to survive.
In my opinion, this is an interesting thread. The Hunger Games such as satirical reality show about reality shows these days that most appear excessive. Selling story, sell a certain figure and figures in order to attract, it is the main material reality show in TV around the world, including Indonesia.
Meanwhile, 24 tribute try to keep struggling in the arena of Hunger Games themselves look very exciting, and at the same time touching. There are still a true friendship in the middle of the competition :')
Nah nah, after watching the movie now I'm so curious with contents of the book.
