I had heard a lot on TV about the Hunger Games and knew that a second was coming out so I decided to get the movie. What a disappointment, the plot was so ridiculous as to make the movie a farce. Also, I really don't care to see teenagers killing each other, I can do that on the evening news. DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE!

Unique idea spoiled by a predictable plot.

The only thing good about this movie was that it finally ended.

Welcome to The Hunger Games where a selected group of completely innocent children (one of which was only about 10) are literally forced to fight each other right to the very death.

The ruling class is totally thrilled by these games, while the poor families watch the live, televised broadcast in hopes that their child will come out of this horrible ordeal alive.

As the audience we are thoughtlessly thrown into the middle of this confused scenario without any explanation as to just how a human society managed to degrade itself to such a pathetic level as this, which clearly makes the ancient gladiator games look almost innocent by comparison.

All we know is that there was a war and in order to maintain peace The Hunger Games were introduced to serve mainly as intimidation by the arrogant ruling class, but, also, sadly enough, they serve as a form of "American Idol"-type entertainment, as well.

Over-hyped.... Over-long..... Over nothing!

If you liked Killer Klowns from Mars, then you may like this B-grade film. Quite humourous, but don't expect good acting, good story-line on any other good.

A Horrifyingly HORRIBLE -wannabe-film. Nearly as bad as the ridiculously boring novel.
I would like to criticize the actors, but there weren't any.
I'd like to say the plot was extremely bad, but there wasn't one.
I would also like to chastise the director for their appalling job, but I'm certain there wasn't one.
Additional, I'd like to tell the (so-called) writer to go back to their day-job.
