Hmm, heard a guy raving how great this movie was. I watched the trailer and wasn?t impressed *********** it anyways, hugely disappointing. I can imagine how disappointed the fans of the book were. The premise of the book/movie is a little silly, can?t imagine how someone could pick up the book, read the jacket blurb and decide to read it. Then it was made into a movie. Go figure! Don't

This is better than any of the "Twilights." It features a functioning creative imagination and lots of honest-to-goodness acting by its star, Jennifer Lawrence. Full Review

If the series's legions of fans miss a detail here or a sub-plot there, they'll still recognize its bones and sinew, especially in Jennifer Lawrence's eagle-eyed heroine Katniss Everdeen. Full Review

In The Hunger Games it's both a feast of cheesy spectacle and a famine of genuine feeling, except for the powerful - and touchingly vulnerable - presence of Jennifer Lawrence. Full Review

As tough-spirited as fans would hope for - and exciting and thought-provoking in a way few adventure dramas ever are. Full Review
Justin Chang
A watchable enough picture that feels content to realize someone else's vision rather than claim it as its own. Any real sense of risk has been carefully ironed out: The PG-13 rating that ensures the film's suitability for its target audience also blunts the impact of the teen-on-teen bloodshed. Full Review
