The Hunger Games movie is based on the novel of the same title by Suzanne Collins. The screenplay follows the book quite faithfully for the most part. Jennifer Lawrence does a sterling job as Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark is well portrayed by Josh Hutcherson and Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth does a great rendition of Gale Hawthorne. A few screen veterans add to the overall enjoyment: Donald Sutherland is very convincing as President Snow; Woody Harrelson plays an excellent Haymitch; Effie Trinket is superbly acted by Elizabeth Banks and a surprisingly good Lenny Kravitz plays Cinna. Even the minor characters are convincing. The sets, setting and location make for an outstanding screen experience and the wardrobe and make-up are a marvel, especially the citizens of the Capitol. Special effects and computer graphics make for a stunning result. Brilliant direction by Gary Ross: an excellent experience all round. The second disc in this DVD set has interviews with producers, director, cast & crew, as well as behind the scenes clips.
Love the movie but had trouble running the dvd. Scenes kept repeating. Other dvds play OK in my player. Very frustrating. Bought another copy from Coles on sale. Couldn't be bothered going through the process of returning it etc.
I love this dvd- it's got an awesome storyline full of adventure, humour, a little romance, and is thrilling from start to finish! Once again, fishpond has delivered an item in record time! Would definitely recommend this dvd!
