There was a lot of hype about both the book and movie “The Hunger Games” but I fail to see why they are so popular. It is the story of a girl from a slum district in the future who is selected to fight in a Running Man style televised reality game in which she has to fight to the death in order to win.
The end was pretty much predictable. I found both the book and the movie to be tedious and I was glad when it was over. Perhaps it is more popular with teenage girls. Otherwise I don’t see the reason for the hype. I rate this movie: Meh.
