Palmat's rating of the film The Hunger Games

For all it's hype and literary pedigree this movie was really bad. The set designs were too gaudy and garish to be taken serious. The action was pedestrian at best and there was no narrative suspense. The actors do what they can given the material, but no matter how you look at it, this is an overlong, talky, cartooney movie that should have been gritty, political and exciting. What a f-ing waste!!!
