Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

... Does a more-than-adequate job of introducing a future world and characters I won't mind revisiting. And it gives you a little to think about while you're waiting.

Cinema Sight

A blockbuster that has something to say about the world we could be living in. Unlike Twilight, this film actually has a deeper and more important philosophical meaning.

2UE That Movie Show

The phenomenal cast with great chemistry and sincere authentic performances from the older actors empowers the material.

Here's the movie for which millions of fans have been starving.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

If 'The Hunger Games' represents the latest book-turned-film blockbuster franchise built on the backs of fanatical adolescents then this is progress indeed.

Projection Booth

For those unacquainted with the novel, it's a narratively unsatisfying - not to mention visually static - affair, regardless of how much Jennifer Lawrence holds her own.

Paul Chambers

What works on the page may not translate to the screen. That's always been the challenge of bringing a writer's vision to the movies. It all comes back to "suspension of disbelief."

Whatever rough patches and shortcomings this first film has, that by the end I was indeed interested in seeing what happens next speaks to how Ross got it mostly right.

If you've never read Collins' novels, the odds that you'll enjoy the film are not in your favor.

American Profile

Lawrence is a strong role model for young girls with her character's sacrifice, courage, moral grounding in a world that's lost its own, and will to fight for what's right, even if it means sacrificing her own life or sparking a revolution.

I didn't read the book. While the film is entertaining enough, I never felt drawn in to this new world.

Tolucan Times

An entertaining adventure, but while director Gary Ross gets terrific performances from Tucci, Banks, Harrelson, and Lawrence, he drags it out far longer than the story requires.

Entertainment Spectrum

Lawrence is terrific in the lead role and gives us someone to root for to survive this horrible ordeal. The supporting players carve out memorable characters. The musical score, costumes and makeup are the other strengths.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

I found the sardonic satire of the movie's first half in the Capitol (a city that suggests a meeting of L. Frank Baum and Albert Speer) more intriguing than the insufficiently suspenseful depiction of the Hunger Games competition itself...

Leonard Maltin's Picks

Lawrence proved her ability to carry a character's heavy burden in Winter's Bone. As Katniss Everdeen, a teenage girl who is both physically and morally strong, she has gravitas, rarely breaking into a smile, but reveals no sign of self-seriousness.

Smarter and tougher than Twilight - and with a heroine who couldn't be further removed from drooping, love-struck Bella Swann.

Solid enough, but for a non-fan fairly unremarkable.
