I had high expectations since I am a big fan of the books. However, I was concerned that they might not live up to the hype of this movie! Unlike Twilight, my concerns were put to rest. This movie captured Suzanne Collins' world almost completely (at least in what you can do in two hours). Jennifer was cast as a terrific Katniss EVerdeen. The visuals were stunning, the acting wonderful and the cinematography superb. I saw this movie twice and I regret that I have not yet seen it again! I highly recommend this movie!!
