The Hunger Games

Gary Ross’s film The Hunger Games is one of the greatest movies of all time. The film is about a girl who is chosen to participate in the annual Hunger Games. Which consists of 24 children ages 12-18 that fight to the death, and the winner is showered with glory. People opposed to the film may say that it is too violent and sends the wrong message to our youth. Our children may think that killing is the way to gain riches. But the film is much more than just violence and killing, it encompasses the journey of a girl who places her life on the line in order to save her family. The willpower and determination for her to win, makes the movie both exciting and dramatic. It describes the world that we could possibly live in, being ruled by a greater power, and being forced to fight against our will. The film is both heart-stopping and eye-opening to the world that is around us. The Hunger Games is a 2012 must-see film.
