Ann and I caught this one on DVD a few nights ago. I think that Science fiction is such a great genre to communicate moral messages. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this flick. Here are a few of the messages that I liked in it:
1) The triumph of courage and sacrificial love in the face of death.
2) The contrast between corrupt authority and righteous individual power.
3) The toxicity of voyeurism and the heartlessness of reality television.
This movie is targeted at young people and I am so glad that it showcases such a courageous teen heroine. I am wondering where the story will go in future movie releases. On a scale of ten, I give The Hunger Games ★★★★★★★★.
