Quick Movie Review – The Hunger Games

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.
