The Hunger Games - Complete Collection [DVD] [2015]

All four films of the sci-fi action series based on the novels by Suzanne Collins. 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 the 12 impoverished rival districts of Panem 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) Katniss, fresh from her triumph in the 74th Hunger Games, 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 next round, autocratic ruler President Coriolanus Snow (Donald Sutherland), still recovering from the Capitol’s humiliation in the last contest, stacks the deck to ensure that the upcoming tournament will wipe out any resistance from the districts. In ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’ (2014) Katniss finds herself in the underground District 13, struggling to adjust to her new life and role as the Mockingjay in the rebellion against the Capitol and President Snow. Meanwhile, her friend and fellow Games victor Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is in the hands of the Capitol, where he is tortured and brainwashed for their benefit. Katniss soon realises that to save the ones she loves she will have to join the revolt, led by President Coin (Julianne Moore), and become a symbol of hope for the rebels. In

    When I read the books, I couldn’t wait to get to the next page as it was so well written all the way to the last gasp on book 3. Looking back on the films, I sort of feel that I have been let down. The pace sometimes was dreadfully slow and I felt that the producers had been a bit cheeseparing and taking the audience for granted. In fact, it felt as if the script had been written by Barbara Cartland. In a lot of places, the film producers assumed that the viewers had read the books. For example, the first shots of the arena where the contestants enter through tubes should have been spectacular, for the baying games audience and yet, to me, the scene seemed to be a field with drainage pipes sticking out of the ground. And, although I knew what the pile of stuff in the middle was supposed to be, it certainly was not explained to the cinema audience. In the book, you realized that things were getting serious when a contestant jumped the gun and was blown up instantly. That was completely omitted from the film and seemed to set the standard for the subsequent 3 discs. The producers knew that this was going to be a big box-office success so why be so greedy and tight fisted with the special effects?

    (update) You can get 3 discs on the spindles either side of this steelbook and the sides don’t bulge. I have put the extras and the original bluray edition from “The Hunger Games” steelbook inside the case making a 6 disc collection. Waited 2 years so I could watch the final 2 instalments back to back. Was it worth the wait?, Oh yes. The steelbook is the same thickness as normal sized steelbooks, which will be a bonus to a lot of people. I see a lot of bad reviews concerning MJ part 1. I just dont see how anyone can say it was boring. “Oh Dear, this set has only four discs” I hear people cry,…….errrrrr……Four films anyone?. Extras discs would have been a bonus but I tend to watch them only once so I’m not disappointed by this shortfall. Just enjoy storytelling on film at its best.
