Movie Review: The Hunger Games

Watching the film makes your forget the time. Once you watch it, you are going to focus on Katniss Everdeen (played by Jenifer Laurence) and her quest in so horrific reality show The Hunger Games.
Laurence is effective in her acting and character. She doesn’t exude power but eagerness to fight, to survive and to stay human even in the midst of death defying times. To be able to play Katniss is not easy because you need to be a active, compassionate, well-guarded and always at your best. I like the costumes of Katniss and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) during their parade going to the inauguration of the Hunger Games. Though I find it a little bit corny when Katniss presented her red gorgeous gown with fire effect in front of Game’s host Caesar (played by versatile actor Stanley Tucci).
The screenplay (writers Billy Ray, Suzanne Collins & Gary Ross who is also the director of the film) is enticing and engaging! As I said once you already hook up in the story you forget the other things outside your screen.
