5 Biggest Hunger Games Plot Holes

5 Biggest Hunger Games Plot Holes


Hi I’m Jamie! And today I’m going to bravely
point out the flaws of a $2.5 billion franchise that’s fronted by the world’s highest-paid
actress. These are the 5 Biggest Hunger Games plot holes! 5. The Crap Career Tributes The career tributes of the wealthiest Districts
– 1, 2 and 4 – have trained all their lives to volunteer and compete in the annual Hunger
Games. Throughout all their training before the arena,
the film shows their incredible stamina, power and accuracy. But when it comes to killing
protagonist Katniss, they just can’t cope! She’s trapped up a tree with nowhere to
go. But they can’t hit her with any weapons or climb up the tree to get her. Instead,
they have a little sit down around a campfire. And they don’t even think to use the fire
to light the tree and scare her down or… you know… kill her. Which is kind of the
whole point of the games. 4. The Unrealistic Statistic So a male and female resident are chosen at
random every year to represent their individual district. For the 75th Hunger Games Quarter Quell special,
the contestants in the bloodbath were drawn from the existing pool of winners. It really gets hammered into our heads about
these almighty career tributes. But somehow there managed to be a male and female winner
for each district, even the really crap ones. Would it not be fair to assume that some districts
wouldn’t have any winners at all in the whole 75 years? Let alone a male and a female
FOR EACH ONE. 3. The Disease Blanket District 12. The coal-mining district. Frequently
covered in a beautiful, white, crisp snow… I call bullshit. It’s a coal-mining district for God’s sake;
it’d be dingy, gray, and certainly not the best thing to rub on to wounds for quick healing
power. Nevertheless, they manage to heal the wounds
of Gale with this perfectly angelic looking snow. In reality it would get infected with
all kinds of carbon crap. 2. Plutarch’s Problematic Plan Plutarch Heavensbee is head gamemaker and
head of the rebellion in Catching Fire. To become head of the rebellion, he needed
a solid, Mission Impossible-esque plan, which he only achieved by pulling the wool over
this huge gaping plot hole. His plan was to protect Katniss in the Quarter
Quell games. But, to keep up the film’s suspense and make the big twist reveal work, we of
course have to see Katniss in lots of life-threatening danger. Which he facilitated.
[CLIPS OF BABOONS, BURNING FOG, SPINNING CORNUCOPIA, BIRDS FROM CATCHING FIRE]
How could he possibly know she’d survive all these things?! There’s no safety net for any
of it! She could easily die! This isn’t the only problem with this plan.
If the end goal was to keep Katniss safe and get her quietly into District 13, why didn’t
he just pluck her out of District 12 before the games began? He could’ve saved lots of
lives, lots of money, and lots of screentime. 1. Crap Capitol TeleVision The whole Big Brother-style filming of society
is extremely inconsistent throughout the entire series. It seems you only get caught on camera
if it contributes dramatically to the plot. President Snow caught Katniss and Gale kissing
in a desolate dark alley, yet didn’t see Katniss sneak out of a wide open space through
a huge fence almost every day. Are we also supposed to believe there were
no audio or film recordings of the numerous times people discussed overthrowing the Capitol? And while we’re on the subject, why has
nobody realized what a bad idea it is for President Snow to force the Districts to watch
the Hunger Games – and numerous other pompous things – from the Capitol anyway? Surely this
contributed to the uprising in the final film. [PRESIDENT SNOW SAYS ‘Hope. It is the only
thing stronger than fear.’] So that’s my list of Hunger Games biggest
plot holes, let me know if I missed any! If you wanna see
