A wonderful cynical portrait of how the media is being used to manipulate us ! Looking back at the history of the Roman Empire, this story makes perfect sense. 'Recycle' the defeated rebel provincials, as gladiators,.. to be ritually slaughtered by each other in the Arena (aka: "Reality T.V.")! Perfectly realized production values, good acting, and an exciting engaging script !!...( P.S. - "Kev's PICkS" : If you liked The Hunger Games,..then checkout this raw and bloody Japanese romp: "Battle Royale".)

Very good movie like the part where they come out with flames on them.

In the Distant Future lies the ruins of North America. What remains of North America is called Panem, home to the Capitol and all it's 12 districts. Dating back to the Dark Days where the Rebels tried to take over, the Capitol "maintains" control over the districts by forcing their districts to choose 1 boy and 1 girl to participate in the Capitol's Annual Hunger Games. The hunger games is a televised arena death match that airs live on TV. There can only be 1 victor in the Hunger Games.

"May the odds be ever in your favour"

Peeta Mellark: "...You're supposed to tell us how to get sponsors and give us advice." Haymitch Abernathy: "Oh. Okay. Ummm... Embrace the probability of your imminent death... and know, in your heart, that there's nothing I can do to save you." Katniss Everdeen: "So why are you here, then?" Haymitch Abernathy (holds up a glass of whiskey): "The refreshments."
