“A muscular, honorable, unflinching translation of Collins' vision. It's brutal where it needs to be, particularly when children fight and bleed.”~Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
Aroview: A 16-year-old girl must compete in a televised tournament in which 24 teenagers from a post-apocalyptic society fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses.
This blockbusting big screen rendering of Suzanne Collins's best-selling young adult novels is aimed at the same market that flocked to the TWILIGHT films, but is superior in almost every way, and features a breakout performance from the talented Jennifer Lawrence (WINTER'S BONE).
Average rating (Good Enough). Showing 1-3 of 4 member reviews.
4 stars (Very Good) Lawrence's fine performance anchors the centre, while Ross deftly balances spectacle and character. The romantic subplot is a bit clunky, but this is still impressive and I can't wait for the sequel(s).~HiFi
