The "Hunger Games" trilogy is fantastic (in ways both good and bad); the franchise is compelling and the first film was far better than I ever expected - primarily because of Jennifer Lawrence's performance. I look forward to seeing how they've used the much bigger budget and how Ms. Lawrence has changed. And while I wait to see it, I read reviews. This is one of the best I've read to date; it is objective and seems to have no agenda other than to critique a film for film's sake. Well said.
