I loved this movie. It stuck true to the book which has been somewhat of a problem with the Harry Potter movies. Jennifer Lawrence played the part beautifully and I felt her struggle throughout the movie. Stanley Tucci was my favorite!

I always love to see movies based on books even though I almost always end up disappointed. This one was a lovely surprise though, by being a great movie and true to the book. Very exciting, well-acted, and of course a great story.

If you didn't read the book, then you will love this movie. However, if you read the book and loved it as much as I did, you will still like the movie, but probably just not as much as the book. They could have made the movie a little longer in order keep in some of the great parts of the book that were cut out, and this would have made the film even richer, but all in all, still a great film. The casting of the main characters was excellent and I'm looking forward to the next two!

Jennifer Lawrence is a wonderful Katniss and the rest of the cast is excellent in this very good adaptation. I didn't love the shaky cinematography during the chase scenes but thought the presentation of the Capitol and the bleakness of District 12 were nicely done.

Great book to movie adaptation that really did a great job of making this a visceral and heart pulsing experience. If they keep this up, can't wait for the next 2 movies!
