This is a very true adaption of an incredible book! This is a powerful film with strong characters and an emotional plot. Jennifer Lawrence who plays Katniss Everdeen is fantastic and strong in her role! She is the powerful and brave as the Katniss who wants to show the Gamemakes that she's more than just a piece in their games and the girl who wants to go home to be back with Prim and her mother. She embodies Katniss perfectly! Another thing was the way that you could leave Katniss' head and see what the reactions were outside the arena. The Gamemakers Control Centre was incredible to see and the way that it brings the realisation that they could click a button and kill a tribute. This film reduced me to tears and made me feel every possible emotion.
Even though I knew what was going to happen(Because of the book) it still had me on the edge of me seat with it's heart-racing plot. A main moment for me was the monologue on the rooftop, the night before the games begin. Peeta Mellark(Katniss' fellow tribute from District 12) is thinking about how he doesn't want to be changed into somebody he's not and die as himself. This moment is my favourite from the whole book because it is something that Katniss always refers to throughout the games. Josh Hutcherson who plays Peeta plays him with so much emotion and is very true to his character. This was overall I fantastic, strong and heart racing adaption which, was very true to the books! Also packed with hours of special features which are so interesting to see how much effort has gone into making this adaption and how it was made, with funny stories from the actors/actresses.
