In case you haven’t seen the movie The Hunger Games maybe it’s time you did. One of the reasons is that it comes with one of the hottest heroines of our days, Jennifer Lawrence.
With her arrow and bow she brings a lot of energy to the movie that has been rarely seen on the big screens.

Her character splits an apple or nails a squirrel from 100 yards. No matter how much all this reminds of gladiators, you can be sure that you will also find a lot of compassion in the movie. Because of her acting, the movie is expected to bring huge box-office numbers, maybe even more than Twilight. As a result the movie studios may begin to have a different view on female action stars.
Unlike many other female protagonists, she is dressed to kill and not to seduce. This way she joins the long line of the heroines who made a stand in the world where men dominate the fields of sci-fi, action and horror.
The actress became an obvious choice for the role of Katniss Everdeen when she won an award for the movie Winter’s Bone. In this she had the role of a teenager who fights for the survival of her impoverished family. In the latest movie, she has focused on the athletic side of the role and has proved determination and smarts.
No matter how difficult this was for her, she tried to stay true to the character of the literary source. According to this, she wasn’t supposed to be liked by everybody. Even more, she states at the start of the movie that she doesn’t know how to get people to like her. Naturally the role of this line is to make the audience like her even more.
Just like a true warrior, she shows tough determination which has a huge effect on the audience. We can say that this is the kind of role that can truly reinvent an actor.
This is because it is something entirely different than what she used to do until then and so she gets to try herself in new situations, making the best of the experience and most probably she will use everything she learned during this movie in other projects as well, becoming tougher on the big screens.
