Film Review – The hunger  Games By Milena

Maybe you know the name of this film, The Hunger Games, but if you have never seen it, what are you waiting for? I'm sure that you will like it. Now I'm going to explain something about it. It's an American film, that comes from the first novel written by Suzzane Collins. The film was released one year ago in the cinemas and directed by Gary Ross. The hunger games is a very striking film, a futurist story about a girl's life some years in the future. During the film there are a lot of special effects and battles between innocent people who never would like to be there. An unforgettable story. It's mostly set in Brevard and Transylvania land. The most important actors are Jennifer Lawrence Katniss Everdeen) and Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark). The plot is about the future of the United States. Before the story began, there was a revolution, and now, the tweleve districts have to be under the power of the Capitol (the richest and the most powerful district). Every year, a boy and and a girl have to fight to survive (they are helped by theirs sponsors and the interpretation of their love, the case of the district 12). Only one person will win but this Hunger Games won't be like every year, something is going to change the lives of all of them. As I told you in the beginning, I think you will enjoy yourself because The Hunger Games has been a very successful production arround the world. Rating: 4,5 starts out of 5

Film Review - 300

300 directed by Zack Snyder Written by Alejandro Maybe is not a true story but allows you to have a good idea of the spirit and warriors of Sparta in this period. This movie was filmed in 2007, directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Frank Miller. This film has incredible images of war and at the same time, an amazing soundtrack. The star is Gerard Bulter who acts as the King of Sparta. The plot is based on the attack of Persian army, lead by the King-God Jerjes ( played by Rodrigo Santoro), at Sparta. The spartans with their estrategy can resist the Persian attack in the Termopilas. This is a fantastic movie for who love war, history, honor and loyalty. But maybe is too bloody so isn't a movie for good for sensitive people.
