    The Hunger Games is the first film in the inevitable franchise based on the popular Suzanne Collins series. It follows in the footsteps of Harry Potter and Twilight, two popular book series aimed at youth, but with crossover appeal, that made their leap into the movies. However, unlike those other two series, Hunger Games doesn't take long to get its legs. It starts running immediately. It's an exciting movie that mixes action, romance, and drama very well. It's the future, and the US has become Panem, a collection of 12 districts. Every year, each district "volunteers" a young man and woman to participate in The Hunger Games, a sort of youth oriented Running Man. When her sister is chosen, Katniss (played by the stellar Jennifer Lawrence, who, at only 21, is about to become a movie star because she's the rare stunner who's also a great actress) volunteers. There's a lot going on in this movie. There's romance involving Katniss and two suitors, there's the games themselves, and a whole bunch of young adult themes that still resonated with me. The best parts of the movie are the games themselves, which, thankfully, rely less on CG and more on the excitement of who will or will not be killed. Part of that excitement is Lawrence, who has way more confidence and presence onscreen that most actors who are later in their careers, let alone a girl who is only 21. The rest of the cast is filled with greats such as Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson and Stanley Tucci. I would have liked to have seen more in the way of deeper meanings behind all of this, but the books and movie are directed more at young adults, so maybe I'm being picky. No matter. The Hunger Games is a great first movie in a series that looks to be pretty exciting.

    I do not think this film is amazing but it was enjoyable enough and if you liked the book you will most likely like this film as well. The movie was fast and intense and interesting and i think that Jennifer Lawrence did a good job with the role, I was very impressed with this actress. The film also looks great but it does not overload the audience with special effects and elaborate sets, it has context and a message and I loved that. I really liked that the characters were well developed and genuinely interesting and I liked that the director did not portray too much violence even though the book has a lot of violence in it. Overall, I did not expect this film to be as good as it was and I think it is worth seeing in the theaters.

    This film is set in the future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, the film is directed by Gary Ross and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. I have not read the book so I do not know if the film stays true to it but I liked this film and I think it is worth seeing in the theaters. I like that the director did not rely too heavily on special effects and dazzling backgrounds, the film had substance and I was pleasantly surprised by that. I really liked the main character and cared what will happen to her and I think that Jennifer Lawrence did a pretty good job with this role. I also liked that the film was fast paced and thrilling and I was not bored even for a second. Overall, I recommend seeing this film in the theaters.

    I loved this book and can't wait for the movie to come out! If you haven't read them, hurry. Their amazing. Its hard not to like the book after you've read the first couple of chapters, so don't worry about it being a boring book. Anyone can read them and still be amazed, no matter what kind of books you like.
