Due to my fear of blood I was unable to watch all of The Hunger Games, but I did manage to watch it in between the goriest parts. The movie takes the book’s brilliance and transfers it easily to the big screen, and while it is not by any means as good as the book, it is a worthy companion to it. I was disappointed by the elimination of certain characters (Madge) from the book, but understand why it was necessary. The cast are all fantastic and captured their roles perfectly –  Jennifer Lawrence storms onto screen as the fiercely protective Katniss while Josh Hucherson’s Peeta, with his charming, easygoing quality balances her out perfectly. Well worth the watch, whether you’re a fan of the books or not.
