The plot of the movie is totally capturing, I wasn’t bored for a second, despite a running length of almost 2 ½ hours. The audience is led through the story very well, the events seem to be brought to screen quite accurately. The characters are very well developed, and the acting is superb. Jennifer Lawrence is wonderful as the main lead, but also Josh Hutcherson, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks etc. play their parts with commitment.
Negative points about this movie are difficult to discuss in such a short text. First there are some logical questions that are bound to come up with this kind of material, but secondly there are some aspects regarding the credibility of it all.
The real highlight about “The Hunger Games” is this eerie atmosphere, this excitement that is built up cleverly and that keeps you glued to the screen. The movie has a great pace and the cinematography pleases the viewers from beginning until the end. Maybe I’ll even read the second part, but I’ll definitely watch it!
