The Hunger Games

Rated PG-13 142 minutes 2012

For a blockbuster based on a popular novel, director Gary Ross’ film looks mighty cheap. Jennifer Lawrence plays Katniss Everdeen, a girl forced to represent her district in a televised contest in which young people battle to the death. While Lawrence is a great actress, she doesn’t look like a starving teen. Josh Hutcherson plays her fellow district rep, Peeta, and he fits the role just fine. I couldn’t get past the drab look of the movie, and the horrible shaky cam that manages to destroy the action visuals. Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones, Elizabeth Banks and Woody Harrelson are all saddled with silly getups for their roles. The movie is a strange clash of tones, never has a consistent feel, and is surprisingly boring, considering the subject matter.
