Chris’s review published on Letterboxd:
Wow how tastes have changed! When this film was released back in 2012, I was like, "Cool! Awesome! Jennifer Lawrence is starring as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie! I cannot wait to see it! It will be such a great movie!" Back then, I would have rated this 4 stars easily.
Now, having re-watched the film, I realized this film actually is geared toward the tween/teen audience and I did not enjoy it as much! I did not hate the film and it is a worthwhile watch but during the film I kept checking the time and then I lost focus on the film and started doing other things! I found the film too long and boring in certain places!
I do agree that Jennifer Lawrence was just amazing in the role of Katniss Everdeen but even J-Law couldn't keep my interest this time around.
What's weird is I never got around to watching any of the sequels so I hope those films are much better than this one!
