Review: 'Hunger Games'

Original post made on Mar 23, 2012

"The Hunger Games" is a little bit "The Most Dangerous Game," a little bit "Lord of the Flies," a little bit "The Truman Show," and a whole lot "Battle Royale," the Japanese novel-turned-film about teens forced to battle to the death. ==I -- PC==

Going to be bigger than "Twilight". Huge. Maybe $150 million opening? There is no higher praise than this review - from a Finnish film critic in love with Jennifer Lawrence...

I liked this movie better when it was called Battle Royale.
Hunger Games is just a remake without all the Asian people.

Color me lukewarm.
