Based on the best-selling books by Suzanne Collins, THE HUNGER GAMES is the first film in the franchise. Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen volunteers in her younger sister’s place and must rely upon her sharp instincts when she’s pitted against highly trained Tributes who have prepared their entire lives. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

    disclaimer: i listened to the audiobook only a few days before renting this movie on itunes, and that may play a role in my feelings. my first impression is that everything is so /rushed/. I experienced scene whiplash during the enire first 30 minutes of the movie and i know it's a TON to squeeze into a little over 2 hours, so in that respect i can appreciate it and say they did a really good job of squeezing. Personally I wish 3-4+ movies were more acceptable to most people, because that or a 2 part movie like Deathly Hallows would really have improved this experience. That being said, I appreciate the acting of most, and even though i don't like Jennifer Lawrence's preformance here, i do realise that this is her debut if i'm not mistaken. Effie in particular was incredible. The sets were fantastic, and i have to admit that the ending with the berries and the head gamemaker was incredible and overall the ending was very satisfying. But of course, it pales in comparison to the book.
