The film fancies itself as a satire, but it’ll take more than Toby Jones in a pompadour to persuade us this is anything other than purest untouched Hollywood venality, as crass as Dicky Attenborough pretending to flog Jurassic Park lunchboxes, and in much worse taste.

Oddly enough, it’s when the games finally begin that the movie flatlines. Writer-director Gary Ross obfuscates the violence in a “tasteful” flurry of unintelligible motion. (If these aren’t the worst action scenes of the year, they’re certainly the most gutless.)

The first hour of The Hunger Games is promising, with hints of class warfare (another half-baked strand) and the chilling juxtaposition of dead kids and talk-show hosts. The implication that Katniss and Peeta are faking their entire relationship to attract those elusive “sponsors” is especially intriguing. But the strong concept wilts, the TV satire goes nowhere, and all you’re really left with is a second-rate adventure with blank-faced heroes. You’d be better off staying home with a good book.

  • Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film The Hunger Games

    An epic start. Powerful, dense, visionary, and excellent are the only words I can describe about this film adaptation of Collins' series about survival, love, & the way how the world works. Cannot wait to see the next entry now.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Hunger Games

    An ode to Darwinism. Too bad that Suzanne Collins, the writer who wrote the novel and the screenplay, borrowed most of her ideas from former SF novellas and movies. Here I'm referring to Schoedsack's The Most Dangerous Game (1932) for example. Recommended because of Jennifer Lawrence. Only.

  • anarresti's rating of the film The Hunger Games

    I was really excited when I read about the upcoming dystopian films, 2, 3 years ago. And this was the first disapointment. Maybe I should read the books. Because everything about that world is interesting, what the ones in power have created and what society has turned into. But the movie is just an excuse for action and romance. Nothing interesting happens or is learned. Even so, I waited for the second.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Hunger Games

    Even ignoring some awkward writing/staging, a lot works at cross-purposes: there's a grim premise, apocalyptic images, and gritty camerawork, while one half of the cast looks like they wandered in from a Fellini film and the other from the CW. (It's nothing if not a festival of stars with campy haircuts). But I'm happy to see an action film that isn't in a hurry, and when the action does come, it ain't bad. 3/5.

  • 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!!!

  • J. O.'s rating of the film The Hunger Games

    "The Hunger Games" franchise doesn't understand itself. It presents concepts and seemingly astute social commentary using clever reality television and media perspectives, yet, it fails to comprehend its own material. Rigid acting, utterly ridiculous (and at times completely inexplicable) production design, nauseating camera work and sloppy editing sum up its formal qualities. This being said, it entertained.

  • 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.

  • Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film The Hunger Games

    Gary Ross may, perhaps, have been the wrong director for this big screen adaptation of the wildly popular young adult novel, but it works over all. In a dystopian future, 12 districts must offer young tributes to the oppressive Capitol to compete to the death in a brutal spectacle. A bit anticlimactic, but surprisingly gritty, using jarring handheld camerawork and minimal music.
