Value In The Hunger Games Essay

666 words - 3 pages

Last lesson of my moral class, I watched a movie which name <The Hunger Games>.
The story is very attracted me. Long time ago, there are 12 districts waged war on the
Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one
boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." Only
one can survive in this game, it’s either kill or be killed. A bravely girl from district 12 who
call Katniss Everdeen volunteered to replace her sister to participate the game due to her
sister knows nothing of survival, and she is more skilled in hunting. And through the public
“Reaping”, a boy called Peeta Mellark becomes another tribute of the game. After watched
this movie, I had a lot of feelings that I can’t describe clearly. The game is so cruel and I was
curious why the residents of the Capitol like this kind of game and ...view middle of the document...

There is extrinsic value in this scene, Katniss Everdeen have to or must to take
action against them to be survive in the game because she was trapped in the tree. Neither
she gets down from the tree nor stay on the tree, she can’t escape from the death. In order
to get rid of them, she chose to let the trackerjackers to attack them. Are they going to die?
There is no exact answer. But absolutely will drive them away.
I found absolute values when Katniss Everdeen put a small girl, Rue from other district
out from a trap. We learn to help people who have difficulties since we are young. If we have
the ability to help others, we should try our best to help. “All for one, one for all”, we may
not know that one day, we also need the help from others. Moreover, Rue helped Katniss by
giving the intimation to attack their enemies. Of course, you should help for the good result,
not help the crime.
There is a large gap between the rich and the poor in the movie. The wealthy people of
The Capitol has no worries about food, lodging, etc. They are so rich that they just enjoy
dressing up their own, dining and watch the murder game show. Circumstances like this
normal in The Capitol, even more like the daily routine. Instead, destitute, stagnant and
painful can be found at the 12 districts. They have no food and they used to exchange equal
value to get something that they need. If they desire more provision, they need to summit
their name to The Capitol and their name will be recorded to participate “The Hunger
Games”. That means, the more you summit your name, the more likely you will be selected. This
is the destiny of the districts of being disloyal to The Capitol before. Different society, different
area, and different destiny, here is the relative value that I found in the movie. Conclusion, I
hope that this kind of game or situation in “The Hunger Game” won’t occur in the reality. No
special reason, I just hope.
