As moving as the book -- and maybe just a little more.
Here's a little more:
- Jennifer Lawrence is a refreshing new Hollywood a-Lister. Her portrayal of Katniss Everdeen is powerful, heroic, and dare I say Oscar-worthy?
- Prim doesn't have much screen time, but the bond between her and Katniss affected me deeply.
- I didn't feel as if I got a chance to really get to know some of the supporting characters in this film. That said, I think the way it was put together made for marvelous storytelling.
- My favorite supporting character? Without a doubt, it is Lenny Kravitiz's Cinna.
- This film is dark, angry, violent, gut-wrenching, heartwarming, and powerful. I recommend it without reservation.
First film of the 'summer.' First one I want to see again, too.
