The Hunger Games Film Review

So... we just got back from watching The Hunger Games at the local cinema and IT WAS AMAZING!!! For anyone who thinks it's just another Twilight look-a-like (as a critic from the i newspaper referred to it as) it most definitely isn't! In fact the film defies the critique it has had from the i newspaper, as the review harshly gave it 2 stars out of 5. However, we believe that we are speaking for the majority when we say that the film definately should have earned a 4 star review.

In our opinion, it only misses out on a 5 as all the small points from the origional book weren't quite fitted in. Even so, The Hunger Games is one of those rare films that actually lives up to its book origional...which leads to my next point. The film makes a lot more sense if you have read the book before hand, as some areas aren't really expanded on, for example the hand gestures. Plus the book gives a lot more background on the characters as well as an insight to Katniss's thoughts. 

Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen)
Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark)

In total, we think the film is brilliant (Josh Hutcherson, I mean come on! Swoon!) but we recommend reading the books first, which are equally, if not even better than the film.
