Reviews

Double bill of sci-fi action films based on the first two novels of Suzanne Collins' trilogy. In 'The Hunger Games' (2012) Jennifer Lawrence stars as 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, a citizen of the totalitarian post-apocalyptic country of Panem, formerly the United States. Every year, the all-powerful ruling agency known as the Capitol selects one boy and one girl from each of Panem's 12 impoverished rival districts to fight to the death on live national television in a contest known as 'The Hunger Games', in which the winner is given food to feed their entire district for a year. When her younger sister Primrose (Willow Shields) is selected as a contestant, Katniss steps up to take her place. Under the tutelage of inebriated former champion Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson), Katniss goes into training for the fight of her life. In 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' (2013), fresh from her triumph in the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss, along with fellow winner Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), returns home to District 12 for some much-needed rest. But soon after, while on a 'Victory Tour' of the other districts, she becomes aware of growing dissent to the Capitol's rule, and realises that rebellion is in the air. As Panem prepares itself for the third 'Quarter Quell' (75th Hunger Games), autocratic ruler President Coriolanus Snow (Donald Sutherland), still smarting from the Capitol's humiliation in the last games, stacks the deck to ensure that the upcoming tournament will wipe out any resistance from the districts once and for all.

No reflection on the movies themselves, but I do agree with the other comment here. This twin pack Bluray represents very poor value for money - no extras whatsoever and the slightly edited 12 cert version of Hunger Games rather than the 15 cert Bluray that is already available. Pay a little extra and get the individual titles rather than this rip off, because the extras are certainly worth it.

I loved both of these films, the poor rating here is aimed at the product, not the movies. I just purchased this item today and I am really angry at how short changed I have been. I expected to find that the uncut version of the first film would be included (the rated 15 version) it was not. Both films are single disc and there are no special features whatsoever. The artwork on both covers are poor, plain black with the Mockinjay pin and Jabberjay pin. Not fair. When buying blu-rays there are usually more special features than there are on DVD but instead I have wasted my money here. Do yourself a favour and buy both blu-rays separately. It will only cost £1 more and it will be worth it. I really hope I can get a refund on this. Just goes to show that even if both movies make a billion dollars each, the studio will still jump at the chance to make just that little, insignificant bit more. That is poor lionsgate, just poor.
UPDATE: I just managed to refund the item in Tesco. I picked up the Catching fire for £13 and I just ordered the uncut version of the first one for £8 on amazon. Just wish I had done that in the first place.

Although targeted at a much younger age group I really enjoyed reading the books and hoped the films would be as good. I wasn't disappointed and enjoyed both of them very much. Jennifer Lawrence was excellent in the main role and really brought the heroine Katniss Everdeen to life perfectly. Two really good films, not to be missed.
