    It's essentially a poor man's Hunger Games. Typical YA adaptation full big ideas that give way to the standard teenage bullshit. The only thing that stood out was the use of post apocalyptic Chicago as a setting.

    This film more than any other is responsible for my desire to visit Japan one day. I fell in love with this movie when i first watched it years ago and only picked it up on bluray the other day. Truthfully I was hesitant to re watch this film at first fearing that it may not hold up to my expectations but I was soon relieved to find that it's still as wonderful as I remembered.
