The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games ★★★½

I get that this is a film made by Soderbergh's best mate, with reshoots done by Soderbergh himself, so I was expecting the visual style, but still, can we not as a society have a whip-round and buy Gary Ross a tripod. No, seriously, the shakycam is effective when they're running around and hunting and just doing normal things and all, but in the fight scenes, it's atrocious. There's no sense of spatial geography, it's impossible to see what's going on, and consequently, it's difficult to care. Still, a good way to get my dystopian movie fix.
