Although reviews for The Hunger Games aren’t allowed to be released until March 20th, those who’ve already seen it are sharing some tidbits we could consider quick reviews.
A writer for ComingSoon.net tweeted the following earlier today:
I can now tell you all that I’ve seen — and really loved — THE HUNGER GAMES. It’s not just a great adaptation. It’s a new sci-fi classic.

And this one from an Ain’t It Cool writer:
Completely surprised by THE HUNGER GAMES. Loved it. Dark, exciting, ambiguous sci-fi allegory. Another amazing performance from J. Lawrence.

I have visited The Hunger Games. And they were awesome. I think I loved the movie, as good as the book. Had a LOTR-epic feeling by the end.

The Hunger Games: Jennifer Lawrence is terrific. She totally grounds the film and invests you in Katniss. Looking forward to seeing again!

Here’s a secret I’ve kept under wraps for a few weeks: the Hunger Games movie is AMAZING. Outstanding adaptation of the source material.

Oh, right: I can now say that I loved THE HUNGER GAMES. Captured what I loved in the books, J. Law and cast solid, am now on Team Hutcherson

Hearing it’s a “sci fi classic” is certainly good news, as this means even critics think it can appeal to those outside of the book’s readers!
Earlier today we shared a story revealing that someone who saw the film thought the adaptation was better than Twilight or Harry Potter.
