ohh what a incoherent mess. in the country side wandering about is a big cgi spider & a robot type thingy. dunno what there doing or why theres miles of tunnels under the fields here that the cast wander about for ages in.
slow & rather boring (& censored in the UK theatres to get a 12A cert) film set in a dystopian future where the rich people living in the capitol subdue the rest in districts (IE work camps) & pick random kids to fight to the death for their viewing pleasure. think of a poor mix of battle royale & the running man, without the action,violence & this is what your left with....already earmarked for 3 squels.... poor story continuity doesnt help (the teenager at the start is nominated 42 times for the annual games, hows that work?)
very scary film, with clever camerawork (shot all in 1 shot) using focus to draw you in & great use of audio to put you on edge. because its shot in 1 shot it makes you feel like a voyeur walking around there, making you feel more involved & because of that the scares work better.
