The Hunger Games Reviews
"The Hunger Games" is directed pretty well by "Gary Ross" also written by him and is spectacularly acted by "Jennifer Lawrence" and "Josh Hutcherson". The special effects in this film are a bit dated for 2012 but still acceptable and the score have a few stand out moments. Characters are probably the most important part in story's and my god did they hit the nail right on the head with "Jennifer Lawrence's" character Katniss Everdeen. The film also stayed quite close to the book but with a few unnecessary changes to it. Overall the first instalment to "The Hunger Games" franchise started off spectacularly with awesome acting, great characters and a suspenseful plot. I give 2012's "The Hunger Games" a 10/10.
I like the idea, so credit to the novel (although its not new.. see Battle Royale). Well translated to screen it seems and had me engrossed all the way through. Some great bit parts from good actors...gotta love Stanley Tucci camping it up. Jennifer Lawrence is perfectly cast as Katniss - not cold, but not warm either. She has, as Empire Mag put it...'a steely determination to do whats right'. Looking forward to the next installments...
