    This is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES! Seriously love it! It is an awesome story line, I watched the first movie and then before they released the second one I read all three books. It was release quite some time ago and if you have not seen it yet, you better make a plan asap!

    Based on the books, this movie is a well rounded good adaptation and has top notch acting and pretty good effects, its worth a watch and if your a fan of the books it is a must watch, perhaps not suitable for really young kids but its definitely older kids friendly.

    Hunger Games movie is based on the sci-fi novel by Suzanne Collins. Movie is a good version of the novel. It definitely got my pulse racing.Great cast. If you want a movie that's intense, accelerating and exciting, then this will definitely give you all that and more.

    Was skeptical about this movie at first. A bit scary if one thinks of the possibilities of the reasons for games being initiated in the first place... What lengths one would go to for food and to protect their loved ones... Very good performances, good story line and certainly not predictable!!! Well worth the watch if you have not seen it.

    I really enjoyed this one. I never read the books but Ill have to say the make up and dresses was a little outrages. The rest of the movie was great. the story line was better than expected. Im quite excited about the sequel and hope they can keep the good performance and story line.

    Really enjoyed The Hunger Games. Do wish I read the book first, but after watching the movie I'm even more keen to get involved in that. I hear the books better than the movie??? If that's the case, I'm gonna be hooked from page 1!! EXCITED :)

    The acting was awesome. Made for some good entertainment but I did feel an ooze in my tummy that the concept of essential existence became a game of survival of the fittest. I suppose that is what sci-fi is all about.

    I really enjoyed this movie. A great performance by all the cast but I did leave the cinema wanting abit more from the movie as the ending seemed a little abrupt. Its filled with suspense and keeps you guessing.

    This is definitely a must see! It happens very seldom that I buy the book after watching the movie but this movie's story line was so good that I wanted more. I have to admit that the movie follows the book very well. What I like about this film is the unique story and the intense suspense you get from it. The only negative remark I have is that the camera moved too fast in certain scenes. I don't get why people compare this film to Twilight because this movie is 110 times better if not more.
