The Hunger Games – Book x Movie
It is not my intention to make a review about the movie, as this is not what this blog is about, but I think it is fair for me to make a note about the adaptation to the big screen, as I previously reviewed the book.
I was curious but at the same time afraid I would be disappointed by the movie, as I usually find the books much better than the films, but with The Hunger Games, especially with all the advertisement and enormous expectation from fans all around the world, it would be a big mistake not to make a movie as faithful as possible to the book.
And it is pretty faithful. Minor things were left apart and the tension grows as the film progresses (as in the book), but in regards to the violence in the arena, in THAT they could not be so realistic and show everything, otherwise the movie would be rated “R 18+” (restricted).
But I liked the movie, it’s very good and not disappointing for those who already read the book
