The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games ★★★

A reasonable adaption of a book I enjoy. There are a lot of odd (bad) style choices, lots of shaking hand cam shots. Its pretty disorienting, and doesn't serve what is happening on screen a lot of times.

I do think they CRUSHED it with their vision of the districts. The capital is a bit off, but finds itself in later films.

The performances range from fine to amazing (I am looking at you Elizabeth Banks, wow).

Ultimately this movie falls short, but is serviceable in the series.
