Al Horner (Script Apart podcast, Empire Magazine) and Sadia Azmat (stand-up comedian, writer and comedy producer) return to Flixwatcher to review Al’s choice The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games (2012) is based on the YA novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins. Directed by Gary (Big) Ross and starring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket, Lenny Kravitz as Cinna, Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman, Donald Sutherland as President Coriolanus Snow, Wes Bentley as Seneca Crane and Toby Jones as Claudius Templesmith.

In this dystopian future, the post-apocalyptic nation of Panam is divided into 12 districts. As a punishment for a revolt and a reminder of their position in the social hierarchy, each district must submit two tributes who will take part in the annual Hunger Games. Aged between 12 and 18 the tributes must fight to the death until there is one survivor. When Katniss volunteers as tribute to save her younger sister she ends up becoming a symbol of the resistance as she defies the rules of the Games.

Recommendability scores for The Hunger Games were very high, only dropping a few points on repeat viewing to score a very respectable 4.13 overall.
