Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance.
In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Panem is divided into 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, rutal retribution for a past rebellion, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors while the citizens of Panem are required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives. Written by
Panem is located in a post-apocalyptic North America whose land mass has been reduced by rising sea levels.

During the countdown for the kick-off of the Games, the countdown is off by 4 seconds. When the number is shown in the arena after the shot of Gale in the field, the first number you should see is 4, not 8. See more »
This is could easily be a copy of Battle Royale for children. I do not
understand why the author of the books would copy so blatantly an
outstanding book/film and turn it into this. The Japanese film(which is
also based on a book) is absolutely shocking an breathtaking. If you
have not seen it yet, please do.
Nonetheless, hunger games is a watchable teen movie. I don't understand
why they had to repeat some scenes over and over at the beginning. Its
a long film with not much action. The ending seems rushed and very much
It could be worse. But has been better, in Japanese.
