The Hunger Games.

via The Hunger Games.

Main Title: Battle Royale redux or ripoff?

Yay or Nay?: Well, I’m kind of in the middle for this. It was good but terrible at the same time.

The deal: Well, basically, we have a televised fight to the death. based on the book by Suzanne Collins.

Teen factor: More A, less Y even though this was classified as YA ficiton.

Tough-girl factor: I’m not too impressed with Katniss Everdeen and her toughness. Sure it’s a hard world she lives in, but please lighten up a bit!

Twilight factor: Why is there even a love triangle in this movie?

Bonus Factors: well, it does help to have someone who may be tough, yet feminine at the same time.

Anti-bonus Factor: the only Black person who becomes Kat’s ally and friend dies WHY???

Rating: ****1/2
