So I saw the movie last night and I did in fact finish the book before seeing it, so that way I can compare and contrast both. I’ll start off by saying that this movie was very, very lengthy and I did start hoping it would end already. The movie runs for around 2 hours and 22 minutes, but it felt much longer.
I’m going to start off by saying that I did enjoy the book more than the movie, and I did notice some (minor & major) parts that were in the book but not in the movie. I know the book described the people in the capitol to be weirdly dressed in the book, but I really wasn’t feeling it too much in the movie, it all seemed too childish. Then again it is a PG-13 movie.
The movie was extremely shaky and I did get a lot of motion sickness from the fight scenes and even the basic scenes were too shaky. During the fight scenes in the arena, I barely knew what was going on cause of this issue. I really think this movie should have a sign outside warning people about motion sickness.
The movie was overall great, and it did have some moments that left me at the edge of my seat. I’d recommend people see it at a normal theater (Not worth the IMAX price).
4 out of 5 stars
