When I was watching this movie the theater with a friend of mine, I notices right away that it wasn’t going to be the same with the book and I know from what you read in the book that had some side stories with the book, of course which I didn’t see in the film the whole time. So the film basically started off in the slums and your main character is a female name Katniss the Heroine the movie. The way see it is that it’s very book, the reason I say that is the Hunger Games the book is put to more depth then the movie. The movie is still good but could have been better in my option that’s all. What do like is action scenes it’s real fun to watch and intense to watch…most of the scenes will appeal allot of young teens and older adults and this film is not intended for children since it’s a violence movie for teens. But the story comes out great doug I’m somewhat disappointed how the movie turned out. Then again I choose the book over the movie anytime. But as far as the acting goes its was great I can see how it was trying to follow the story from the book…I think it did good but since it watch I can’t complain much about it. Since most of the actors are very well known like Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks that’s been around.in many roles now, Some I know are not that well known. But over all I can’t say it’s the best but its still good no dough. Check it out!
