Though not at all innovative or original, is at least a worthwhile action fantasy.

Director Gary Ross does a great job in bringing the thrilling novel to life in this uncompromising drama.

Deadspin

The movie is oddly blithe about its central premise. How can this movie set up this monstrous society and this brutal game of genocide and expect us to not only cheer for someone to "win," but also hope she finds someone to kiss in the end?

The film shows precious little hunger and no sense of game.

The Patriot Ledger

Lawrence makes Katniss a heroine every bit as strong, fearless and compelling as the patron saint of badass females, Lisbeth Salander.

The filmmakers' devotion to Collins' page-turner will please the book's fans and anyone who likes action, sci-fi, social commentary or a female protagonist with smarts, compassion and survival skills.

An exhilarating debut from the bestselling series about teenagers engaged in a deadly bloodsport.

Given the recent failure of so many big-budget films, the odds weren't in The Hunger Games favor, either. Thankfully, Hollywood got this one right.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The supporting cast is excellent (most notably Stanley Tucci as flamboyant television host Caesar Flickerman, and Woody Harrelson as Haymitch Abernathy, Katniss and Peeta's troubled mentor).

Some plot threads are underserved but The Hunger Games is a fascinating and disturbing character drama that successfully captures the core themes of the book.

Sure this entry is a ripoff of "Battle Royale," but it's still an entertaining ride with great casting that will more than likely please fans of the book and those who've never even heard of it.

Despite a few minor problems, The Hunger Games proves to be a promising start to what will no doubt become the next beloved Hollywood mega-series.

While the 12A rating renders any serious violence a tad impotent, there is much more going on here than the fawning and frowning of its soppy vampire peer.

A retread of a tale that's The Running Man meets Lord of the Flies with a dash of Twilight for tween-adoring measure.

I never thought I'd describe a film by Pleasantville and Seabiscuit director Gary Ross as 'whackadoodle,' but if the shoe fits.

The Hunger Games may be a flawed beast, to be sure, but there's plenty of subtext to glean from the narrative, and a slew of wonderfully rich characters worth investing in.

While a great ride of a movie, it is also one wrapped around an oddly disquieting message.

The first genuine can't miss film of the year that you'll want to go back to the theater to see over and over again.

Katniss embodies all that's better than her Hunger Games opponents, being aptly appalled at what she sees while also learning to manipulate her audience.

The Hunger Games stomps the Twilight saga flat, and though I found those films somewhat amusing, this one is the real deal...
