Jennifer Lawrence brought wonderful depth and vulnerability to the role. Sometimes book Katniss can be a little less than likable at times, but Lawrence's portrayal highlights the best parts of Katniss' personality: loyalty, determination, a strong sense of right and wrong.
As soon as Primrose's name was called, I started bawling and found myself crying intermittently the rest of the show. Obviously if I hadn't read the books, I wouldn't have cried that early on probably. However, I do think that they did a great job of making the movie stand alone.
My biggest and only real complaint was how they ended the movie between Katniss and Peeta. All I will say is, it was too nice, and too vague.
What did you think of the movie? I'm also curious if anyone can share a link to Suzanne Collins' reaction to the movie? Thanks!
