Harry Rossi's rating of the film The Hunger Games

Felt like a wimpy version of Battle Royal, and I know that there are countless differences between the two but the similarities are still apparent enough for me to draw comparison. The extreme shaky cam and delirious editing was constantly shying away from showing any actual violence thus keeping the film from being much better than it was. The one thing I did like about it was the acting.
