The Hunger Games

 (2012)

The Hunger Games Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss' young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.

For more about The Hunger Games and the The Hunger Games Blu-ray release, see the The Hunger Games Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Hunger Games Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Hunger Games is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. Perhaps because the sound design is so spectacular (see below) and the relentless "shaky cam" makes the image seem blurry to begin with, the film's overall visual look may not pop quite to the degree some would expect— but fear not, this is for the most part a flawless high definition presentation. As is so frequently the case in the contemporary film world, the digital intermediate has been significantly color graded and filtered, with many of the forested Arena sequences cast in pale green or cool blue hues. This can potentially rob the image of at least some fine object detail, but the results here are generally quite exemplary, especially in close-ups. Despite the artificial filtering, colors are nicely saturated and if not exactly "accurate" looking (an increasingly irrelevant term in today's color-shifted film world), very robust. The image is crisp and clear and for the most part very precise. The only two concerns that may present any problems are some extremely minor stability issues and some variable contrast. The stability issues are really much less than one might expect, given that so much of the film takes place in heavy foliage, which for some reason wreaks havoc with high definition presentations a lot of the time. The contrast issues are a bit more of a head scratcher, as so much of the film looks good and one would assume that with a DI this would be a replica of the theatrical exhibition. But notice how hard it is to read the second note from Haymitch that Katniss receives after Peeta has been injured. These are very minor qualms however in an overall great looking transfer.


The Hunger Games Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Before we address The Hunger Games' stupendously exciting lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 audio mix, mention must be made of something I at least have never seen before on a Blu-ray release: a Dolby Digital 2.0 track that has been (in the words right there on the audio menu screen) "optimized for late night listening". I don't know why that struck me as inherently funny, but there you have it—for you people staying up way past your bedtime, there's a wonderful Dolby Digital 2.0 track on this disc expressly set up for your listening needs. Now on to the track that most high definition aficionados are going to be listening to, no matter what the time of day (or night). This DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 is simply a huge, unadulterated "wow" from start to finish. Impeccably immersive and full of some of the coolest surround effects I've heard in some time, this track regularly assaults the senses with all manner of discrete channelization and bombastic LFE. I defy most listeners not to startle when they first hear the cannon which announces the deaths of various participants (and listen to how carefully it's placed in the sound field with differing amplitude along the way). One of the coolest effects comes a couple of times in the film when a huge spaceship hovers over head. The LFE here is absolutely astounding and one of the most notable things about it is how it vibrates and pulses over the listener—this is an LFE "wave" of sound. There are too many wonderful moments, both large and small, to really list in any detail, but the track sports absolutely reference quality fidelity, with huge variances in dynamic range and a totally visceral sense of "being there".
