'THE HUNGER GAMES: THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS & SNAKES'
Rated PG-13 for strong violent content and disturbing material.
What it’s about: This prequel to the popular series follows the young adulthood of Coriolanus Snow and his rise to power.
The kid attractor factor: This is likely aimed at (young) adults who liked the first series and are eager to return to Panem. Not a lot of appeal for young kids.
Good lessons/bad lessons: One can never quite escape their lineage.
Violence: Some extreme bloody violence concerning young adults and kids. Lots of scenes of kids fighting and killing each other in the Hunger Games (knives, pitchforks, beating, poison). There are also scenes of state violence and executions by hanging.
Sex: A kiss.
Parents’ advisory: This is pretty violent and harrowing for a PG-13 movie. Not appropriate for younger kids, more of a teen film.
