Guest Review: The Hunger Games by Briana Ward

17 Apr

Briana Ward is a young lady with a great future ahead of her writing reviews.  We hope to have her back to review some of this summer’s movies, from a kid’s point of view.

Before I read the Hunger Games, I sought it out to be an engaging novel for teens who like a good adventure.  Throughout reading the book I dug out its true meaning , a life lesson. I looked past the romance and prejudice games and struggled to find the meaning of the story. When watching the movie I found that the director, Gary Ross, had reflected the moral in a way that teens could process and they could understand that life’s your only obstacle, but he still gave the audience the action they wanted.

The idea of watching children fight to death was repulsive to me, but the excitement of watching Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence star drove me to watch it. In the movie, Jennifer Lawrence used her many skills and outgoing personality to change herself into the young heroine, Katniss Everdeen. As Peeta Mellark, Josh Hutcherson made his part into a comedy. Funny as it is, he still fell in love with Katniss, acting his way through the games, determined to save her.

The movie is what it’s worth, suspenseful and breathtaking. After seeing the movie, people will feel like they had just been through that tragic world. Nothing has ever left me so in awe upon leaving the theater. This is a film that you will never forget.
