The Hunger Games

Review: The Hunger Games

24 Mar 12

Excellent teen movie yet, about 80% as good as book

Loved the action scenes and loved the story. Some characters were PERFECT illustrations of the book. Only thing I found a bit naff was the love triangle between Katniss, Petar and Gale. Petar and Katniss seemed to have absolutely ZERO chemistry and their relationship wasn't well illustrated at all. On the otherhand, Katniss and Gale were too close.

Apart from this, movie was great. Could've had more gore (blood and guts, etc) but I understand that teen films are still very PC when compared to the actual books. Wish the film industry would realise kids are used to graphical content these days, sooner rather than later. More blood and guts would have made this a 5/5 for me.

Great though and movie is very well suited for those who haven't read the book yet. Perhaps a little bit too suited for those who haven't read the book. But still, worthwhile watching!
