    Review by:  Lisa

Title:  The hunger games [videorecording]

Starring:  Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland

Collection:  Movies

In the post-apocalyptic nation of Panem, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her sister’s place in the televised event in which one boy and one girl from each of the twelve districts are chosen to fight to the death until one victor remains.

I am a huge Suzanne Collins fan, having read the Gregor juvenile fiction series she wrote prior to the Hunger Games phenomenon.  The Hunger Games books have been and continue to be bestsellers, read by tweens, teens and adults alike.  Once you start reading them, you are hooked and absolutely must keep reading to see what happens next.

Although I am a big fan of the series, I did not make it to the theater to see the movie when it was released, so I was anxious to see the film, which has just been released on DVD and Blu-Ray.  Would it live up to my expectations?  I am happy to say that it did:  the actors and production crew did a fantastic job of bringing the story to life on screen.  The casting of the actors for the characters was well done, in my opinion those chosen were superb fits for how I imagined them to look and behave.

Very enjoyable and worth checking out at the library!
