The Hunger Games

Movie • 2012 • Sci-Fi  

Report
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. The world will be watching.
This movie contains 57 potentially triggering events.

Also while we don’t see them die, a dead roast pig with an apple in his mouth is shown several times during the evaluations around 45 minutes in, then about five minutes later we see some dead fish close up on a table. When Katniss is in the arena we see the skinned body of a squirrel of some sort.

One of the sadistic teens who bragged about killing Rue (the 12 year old), while she was attacking Katniss. The guy from the same district as Rue sees and hears this and pulls the girl off of Katniss, saving her, and then kills the girl. It was no worse than any of the other killings. Other than the fact that this guy didn't attack that girl and kill her for fun

No one is in a real committed relationship, so no one can actually cheat. However, there is a rather complicated situation where characters are forced to act out a relationship for the cameras, and it's not clear if both of them realize it's an act. It's definitely not cheating (neither character is in another relationship) but emotionally it is tough.

Safe. Other commenters need to stop voting yes. There's a separate page for the book AND the second movie. This page is for THIS MOVIE. It's confusing for people (like me) who legitimately have emetephobia and don't remember or haven't watched the movies. Respect. The. Rules. If you're voting yes only because the book or second movie has someone throwing up, GO TO THAT PAGE and MARK IT THERE, not HERE.

In the books, the people in the capital drink a special cocktail so they can purge and eat more.
If you've read the book, you'll see it in the movie. If you haven't read the book, I'm not sure if it will be apparent.

Homelessness (or at least extreme poverty) is shown briefly at the start of the film in Katniss’ home district. Nothing is mentioned of it.

For the storyline (lots of people dying) it has a happy ending.
The games are concluded in a somewhat satisfying way (protagonists survive), their mentors are still mentoring, etc.
But, the world is still "broken" and the protagonists are aware of their vulnerability.

The series has a lot of hard aspects to it, and whether you think the whole thing is worth the ride or not is subjective. There is a satisfying end, though it isn't all happily ever after. And there is a lot of heartbreak along the way.

There are explosions in the movie when mines are set off, but they’re not nuclear.

there is blood, but as it a movie destinated to teens around 12-13, you cant "see" anything, its always extremely brief or out of screen
