The future’s bleak in this gripping adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ popular young adult page-turner.
Perfectly cast as feisty 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, Jennifer Lawrence plays a blinder, bringing just the right amount of sensitivity and severity to a tricky, multi-faceted role. She really comes into her own when Katniss is selected to participate in the annual Hunger Games, where it’s kill or be killed for entertainment’s sake.
Delivering a breakneck actioner as colourful as it is caustic, director Gary Ross doesn’t shy away from the novel’s barbed social commentary.
