“The Hunger Games” (2012) TRAILER

 Scoring an amazing 8.2 within the first week of its release, “The Hunger Games”, based on the series by Suzanne Collins, promises to be something entirely different from the action/romance flicks we have been used to, aka Twilight.

Aside from the fact that Jennifer Lawrence obviously raises the temperature on screen, this masterpiece by director Gary Ross introduces a new look at war and society.

“The Hunger Games” contains plenty of action, yet, while the action is certainly appealing, the true battle lies in the psyche.  Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are childhood friends forced to fight each other in a coliseum style deathmatch.  They both bring heavy stakes to the table, but only one can survive, making the “hunger games” much more than just shooting arrows at targets and swinging swords at dummies.

In “The Hunger Games”, the real action lies in the heart.

“The Hunger Games” is an 8/10
