If sport isviolence by other means, then reality TV is cruelty, envy, spite and group hate… by exactly the same means. The Hunger Gamesis an exciting dystopian fantasy-thrilleron this theme, taking place in a world of circuses but no bread. It is directedby Gary Ross, and based on the 2008 young-adult bestseller by SuzanneCollins, who co-wrote the screenplay with Ross.

The entirety ofNorth America has become a totalitarian state, traumatised by chronic foodshortages; these once inspired a people's uprising in outlying regions, whichwas brutally suppressed but the relevant communities "forgiven" oncondition that they annually supply 24 young people by lottery to compete in atelevised survival contest in a fenced-off woodland arena, provided withweapons and food, fighting with the elements and each other until only oneremains alive.
In this way,the authorities hope to siphon off the people's tendency to violence andresentment. At first terrified, the chosen contestants are soothed by thepre-contest period: they had been living in dirt-poor rural areas that haveregressed to a parody of 19th-century pioneer austerity, like something out ofLaura Ingalls Wilder. But the chosen teenagers are brought to a gleamingfuturist metropolis beyond their dreams, where people dress with absurdlyobvious decadence and foppery. Lavished with food, luxury, top-notch athletictraining and the intoxicating thrill of celebrity, they begin to glow:sacrificial lambs who think they're rock stars.
Among them aretough, level-headed Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark(Josh Hutcherson), two people with some emotional history together. When Peetaconfesses his feelings for Katniss and the ratings explode, the thought oflovers who must fight each other to the death begins to electrify the TVpublic, and requests for a rule change are pressed on the malign president,played, perhaps inevitably, by Donald Sutherland. But is Peeta just playing tothe cameras?
The HungerGames is partly an entertaining throwback to satirical pictures such as NormanJewison's Rollerball (1975) and Sidney Lumet's Network (1976), although thosemovies had a very adult, sexy-sleazy feel; The Hunger Games is notably chaste,despite all the fighting. It could also have been inspired by Kinji Fukasaku'sJapanese nightmare Battle Royale (2000) and Daniel Minahan's excellent andunderrated satire Series 7: The Contenders (2001). The film also awoke inme a very happy memory of the classic first-season Star Trek episode"Arena", in which Captain Kirk is teleported to a uninhabited planetwhere he has to fight the giant reptilian Gorn, and is told there are rawmaterials there to create a weapon, if only he can find them.
