The Hunger Games trilogy takes place in an unidentified future time period after the destruction of North America, in a nation known as “Panem.” Panem used to consist of a rich Capitol, located somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, and thirteen surrounding, poorer districts which cater to the Capitol’s needs. As punishment for a previous rebellion against the Capitol wherein the thirteenth district was supposedly destroyed, every year one boy and one girl from each of the remaining twelve districts, between the ages of twelve and eighteen, are selected by lottery and forced to participate in the “Hunger Games.” The Games are a televised event where the participants, called “tributes,” must fight to the death in a dangerous outdoor arena until only one remains. The winning tribute and his/her corresponding district is then rewarded handsomely. It is required viewing for everyone in the districts.
It is really a good movie. Everything is unpredictable ( I can not predict what will happen since I do not read the book yet ) Actors are good. Everything in the movie is good. Except for the fight scene against the tributes.
Lessons I got:
The courage. Family is the source of our strength. We got more courage when we are inspired by our family. We are willing to sacrifice for their own benefits.
The pain. Pain actually motivates us to keep on going, to finish the game. The more we get hurt, the more we are motivated to be strong.
The Love. Love is the primary reason why we choose to be brave, to endure the pain, to finish everything we started.
I do not recommend this to young children. Fight scene is too harsh.
