This movie is awful compared to the book. The pacing is all over the place. The cinematography is so stupid. They just flat out changed a ton of important elements. If you haven't read the books this movie would be fine but for me it does nothing except make a worse version of the books.

Did not disappoint. Jennifer Lawrence did a great job as Katniss. Movie had all the emotional and inspiring parts of the book even though not everything in the book is in the movies.

I'am convienced that Hunger Games is the best movie of 2012 because it is an interesting and captivating film with man,y action scenes. This film carries a true message for society. This dystopia is very successful it mixes rebellion ands dictatorship. I like the characters but especially a heroin kathniss because she showns courage and volunteers instead of her sister0. So she has to go and compete in the hunger games, the TV game. All players are drawn. There is a girl and a boy in each district. Players must face off during a fight to the death. I also like a lot Jennifer Lawrens she is a super good actress who is known of public thanks to this film. She is excellent and recognized in Hollywood. Hunger Games is definitely one of the most influential feature films of the decade.

Great movie. To all angles and degrees. Great adaptation.

In terms of stylized violence, check out some better ideas such as Tarantino or Scorcese. For death matches, check out Battle Royal. This is somewhat in the middle.

The Hunger Games Review
âThis is one of those movies like a Harry Potter or a Twilight installment that really doesnâ(TM)t need to be reviewed. Everybody is going to see it regardless. On a positive note, this film really earns its massive box office returnsâ? - According to Daniel green on rotten tomatoes. Is basically a true fact my review really might be pointless but just in case someone is really picky on movies and must go read a review I am just going to tell you you really should by your movie tickets now. Otherwise you might not get any tickets I would just say you really are going to want to see this movie like 1000000000 times after you see it once itâ(TM)s like a addictive drug but this one is good for you. This Movie is about a girl who goes into a huge arena to fight to the death so if you are trying to find a Movie to watch with your 3 year old then donâ(TM)t even read the rest of this it is not for kids this age. But back to the review She was faced with a hard life after her father died so her mom was so sad she could not take care of her and her sister so katniss the main character was forced to take care of her mom and her sister prim so having to fight to the death could end up being her death story and maybe even the reason to her mom and her sisters starvation Thatâ(TM)s all I am going to tell you I think that might make you want to watch this Movie.

Times In Districts
Movie Review of The Hunger Games directed by Gary Ross
The movie The Hunger Games is a young adult film set in a dystopian universe directed by Gary Ross. The movie showed what it was like to live in a world that was driven by the government and not society. The main character in this book is a girl named Katniss Everdeen who goes to fight in the annual Hunger Games. The Hunger games are games where two people from each 12 districts (one boy and one girl) battle it out to death to see which district is the strongest. The movie goes on to show how to fight in the games. Does Katniss survive and make it out of the Hunger Games?
Originally there were 13 districts, but district 13 rebelled against the capitol and got destroyed. Katniss lives in District 12 which is the poorest most dangerous district. When Katniss and her family went to the drawing of which people were being picked for the games, Katniss's sister was chosen. Katniss didn't want her sister in the Hunger Games, so she volunteered instead of her. Her and a boy named Peeta Mellark were chosen, and they started training for the games.
Ross showed how Katniss and Peeta got ready for the games, and what their training for it was like. Also, he showed how Katniss and Peeta were going through the games and making it out alive each day. The movie also showed how Peeta and Katniss worked together after a while of not wanting to.
The Hunger Games was a long movie, but very entertaining, an full of excitement. The movie showed what a dystopian universe would look like and how it would function in society. Overall, the movie was made with lots of thoughts and details, and taught many lessons. So, did Katniss and Peeta survive the Hunger Games, you will have to watch the movie to find out?

The Hunger Games was a very good movie. I personally think that it was definitely the best out of all of the other Hunger Game movies. It was very exciting and thrilling. Throughout the movie you almost feel like you are connected with the characters throughout the entire thing. Which I believe made the movie even more enjoyable. Overall it had a very enjoyable story line that kept you engaged throughout the whole movie.
In The Hunger Games the rich people in the Capitol almost control everything. They all get whatever they want when they want it. But as far as the poorer people go they are not as lucky. They are all divided into different districts. In each district, the rich people from the Capitol choose randomly a boy and a girl from each district to fight against the other people in the districts. Then whoever is the last person alive is the winner of the Hunger Games. But when Katniss and Peeta both got pulled for the Hunger Games, they changed the rules forever in the Hunger Games.
I believe that if you are a person that enjoys action type movies, this would definitely be a movie for you. It is the type of movie you could easily watch over and over again and not get bored of because it is so exciting. The Hunger Games was a movie made to entertain people and kind of show what the creator thought could possibly happen in the future. So in a way the Hunger Games is kind of a futuristic movie. Overall this is a very great movie that is definitely worth watching. I would absolutely recommend this movie to others.
