The Hunger Games

In what was once North America, the Capitol of Panem maintains its hold on its 12 districts by forcing them each to select a boy and a girl, called Tributes, to compete in a nationally televised event called the Hunger Games. Every citizen must watch as the youths fight to the death until only one remains. District 12 Tribute Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has little to rely on, other than her hunting skills and sharp instincts, in an arena where she must weigh survival against love.

03/22/12 - OC Register - By MICHAEL PHILLIPS, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"The Hunger Games" was made for the screen, and for franchise glory. Collins' first book, all pace and incident, cries out "Film me! Film me!" on every dread-filled, straighter-than-straightforward page.
Director and co-adapter Gary Ross, whose two previous features were the comic fantasy "Pleasantville" (1998) and the rosy Depression-era underhorse saga "Seabiscuit" (2003), turned out to be a smart match for the material. He does not pump the action for cheap thrills or opportunities to stoke the audience's blood lust.
