Let me start this review out by saying, like most people who go into a movie that comes from a book they love, I have a hard time separating the two. Having said that I went into The Hunger Games movie knowing it was not going to be what I had pictured in my head as I read The Hunger Games the book.
I thought all the costuming and special effects were done well, especially when it came to the room that was running the game. That was amazing!
I was surprised that I ended up liking all the actors that played my favorite characters from the book. I really liked Peeta, played by Josh Hutcherson, I thought he did an amazing job. I also thought Caesar Flickerman, played by Stanley Tucci, was awesome.
I loved everything with Peeta and Katniss together on camera! I honestly did not think they where going to work for me but they totally did.
My big problem with the movie was this: Lack of emotion. Yes, the Reaping scene was well done, and just after when Katniss has to say goodbye to her family I did feel for her and her family. But, I felt like everything was so rushed after that I had no time to digest or care much about it. Even the deaths where to quick. I would have liked a lot more development.
Now don’t get me wrong I enjoyed this movie. I think anyone can appreciate The Hunger Game, if you have read the book or not. In fact from the group I was with, the guy that had not read the book enjoyed it the most.
