About the Movie

Based on the best-selling books by Suzanne Collins, THE HUNGER GAMES is the first film in the franchise. Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen volunteers in her younger sister’s place and must rely upon her sharp instincts when she’s pitted against highly trained Tributes who have prepared their entire lives. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Like the select participants of its savage sport, The Hunger Games stands triumphant, if scarred and a bit wobbly from the contest. – Scott Bowles, USA Today, Mar 22, 2012

Fresh: The Hunger Games' pacing is brisk, its stakes as high as stakes get, and its leading lady engaging enough that the odds - at the box office at least - will be ever in its favor. – Bob Mondello, NPR, Mar 22, 2012

Rotten: Even when two people are just talking calmly, Ross jerks the camera around. Why? As the sense of danger increases, he has nothing to build toward. – David Denby, New Yorker, Mar 26, 2012

Fresh: It features a functioning creative imagination and lots of honest-to-goodness acting by its star, Jennifer Lawrence, who brings her usual toughness and emotional transparency to the archer-heroine Katniss. – Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 22, 2012
