which packed the theater till the furthest row. As the curtains rose, the crowd went wild. I was worried that thisjubilance would prevent me from hearing the movie, but as soon asCaesar's blue hair appeared on screen, the audience went completelysilent. Everyone was focused on the film, glued to the characters'interactions as if their lives depended on this, too. |
We all wantedto see whether the film lived up to our high standards. In the beginning of the movie, I felt disappointed. The film mashedmany of the scenes from the book together, which weakened itsaccuracy and sincerity in my eyes. The acting did not convey theintensity of emotions that resonated from the book, and I felt thatJennifer Lawrence was unable to portray the deep and multifacetednature of Katniss' character.
I envisioned a far spunkier,sarcastic, and strong Katniss. Lawrence's stony-faced acting in themovie's earlier stages left me wanting more snark, although Icommend her sass in the scene where she impresses the Gamemakerswith her archery skills. I also felt the movie also did not address the tumultuous nature ofKatniss' and Peeta's relationship to the extent that the novel did,choosing to address the couple's fights only briefly. However, assoon as the two entered the arena of the Hunger Games, the filmtook a turn for the better.
Not only did the cinematography becomerawer and more shocking, the sound conveyed the drama of theupcoming events. Lawrence's acting improved tenfold, as the youngactress proved her ability to illustrate the protagonist's grimdetermination found in the original text. We travel with Katniss as her intimate companions, experiencing thepain, anger and suspense that she so aptly enables us to feelthrough her natural acting. We understand her frustration andsadness. We fall in love with the adorable face of Peeta, and hopesomehow that the Hunger Games can have 2 victors instead of 1.
Soalthough I felt let down at the start of the film, I was adifferent person at its conclusion. My views of the film changedentirely, as my senses were ignited and I was transformed from anidle viewer to an active participant in the Hunger Games. Tocontinue this phenomenon, I know I have to keep reading, and keepwatching the movies when they come out.
