I enjoyed this movie!!! Very true to the book, yet did not linger, which helped to keep the movie and story moving. This is a great beginning to the dark path that this young lady(Katniss) has to take. War is not pretty. Who has to die for someone to say that is enough. This story is more than a game show that only one survives and the others just go home. Real war, not often do you get to go home. Excellent performances, especially by Jennifer Lawrence. I have a feeling most people will need to see this movie again, to notice different story lines that will come up in later films. Well done with the story of Rue. To me it was very impactful in the book and also in the movie.Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz, and Woody Harrelson Brought their characters to life. Josh did a great job as Peeta. It should be interesting to see in what direction they take the next two books.
