The Hunger Games: Movie Review

By: Swordboy
3 out of 5 stars

I just can never get into the book. I am 3/4 done and I have to force myself to finish a chapter. I don't believe the world or the characters so it has failed to draw me in.

I hadn't heard about this book until just a couple months ago (being in South America keeps you sanctuaried from some things) but I saw the trailer and outright had zero interest. I think it's the world situation for me too, it just doesn't seem at all grounded, possible, or likable.

Great review!

Honestly, I disagree with some of the comments made. It really reminded me of a mixture of V for Vendetta with Running Man. Finally a movie for teans that can allow some good acting, thought the end was very predicable and I did want to vomit after some of the directing, but I didn't think that it was horrible, but I actually found myself more interested in reading the book after seeing it.

Don't misunderstand, I really don't think it was horrible at all. It's actually quite entertaining, and the storytelling is noteworthy. That's why I gave it 3/5 stars. But as a classic sci-fi film connoisseur, I have strong opinions about the genre. I don't criticize anyone else for enjoying it or speaking highly of it.

Shutter #1
When an obsessive inventor builds a camera that can actually take men's souls, this unusual device sets in motion events that could bring about a calamity of apocalyptic proportions. Shutter is a sweeping tale of the darkness that lay inside the soul of every man that went West.
