one word, perfect :)
doesn't follow the book exactly but it was amazing :)
great job Jennifer Lawerence

My friend read the books, my sister's friend, and so did my cousin. I am looking forward to watching this movie. However, my friend said that she was upset that the cat was the wrong color, LOL!

@Quetzlzacatenango Try fitting complex character building scenes and every detail from the book into a 2 and a half (maybe even shorter) hour movie.

One notch below Hanna if you like teen actions and main character with feme fatale skills. The story is sort of ridiculous with 12 year olds girls in mortal combat with 18 year old boys? It would be unwatchable without the special effects and great scenic shots. Stick with the book and use your own imagination instead:
