Wow, what a great movie! Have used this with my teen groups. Great teaching movie ~Spoiler~ A Godless society in which this courageous girl feeds her "district" ( concentration camp ) using her hunting skills. She selflessly gives her life for her sister who was chosen to fight to the death. 12 boys 12 girls pitted against each other in an arena like Gladiators to the death, as in Roman times, but with technology for the entertainment of the rich and overindulged society. She uses her skills for survival. If you haven't seen it.. Use this with your kids as a teachable moment. Don't knock it until you read the books or see the movie. It could be "your" future! Teach your kids basic survival skills!

It might show hunting and outdoor skills.
But.... Why dose everybody think this is such a great movie? Kids killing eachother! What's so great about that? What a way to show people how good hunting is. Stop hunting animals start hunting children!

Great London quote. I love it. And you're right bird shooter, as I wrote this, I recalled how a lot of the skills characters in the movie/book survived, I did learn in Boy Scouts as a kid. What a great organization. -- Doug

Save small farms (and spend time on one!), help fund or lead scouts, teach a kid how to hunt and fish... That's how we enrich our youth and our collective future. 50 years ago this test was a gimme, now if you score well you are in a small minority. So sad.

Great books! they give a lot of great survival tips. The best part is that it is a number 1 seller and it showcases the benefits of hunting. Hopefully the movie will do the books justice.

Let me see if I understand this. With all the destruction in families, violence in gangs, kids shooting kids, what we need is a ""CHALLENGE"" for kids to fight to the death. Hmmm?

I believe most true outdoorsmen would show the hollywood writers what it truly is like to survive. About 110 years ago Jack London described what it was for a beast to survive in the wild in the following words..."He was a killer, a thing that preyed, living on things that lived, unaided, alone, by virtue of his own strength and prowess, surviving triumphantly in a hostile environment where on the the strong survived." These words ring true for many of us that read these pages. I hope the movie inspires these feelings in all of those that see it and make them realize that we must get back to our humble beginnings to fix the crazines that drowns the world today.

Just like in Boy Scouts, Be Prepared. A lot of the skills mentioned are taught in scouting. Looks like a good movie.
