I was disappointed by this movie, though I didn't have high expectations. (Truth be told, I don't really get the Hunger Games obsession.) However, I did expect an action-packed film. If you want action, watch the trailer. You won't get much more by watching the movie. The biggest disappointment was Natalie Dormer's character. Love her and was expecting a greater BA role. Also, Liam Hemsworth is dull and I wish there'd been less of him. That said, there were plenty of notable performances: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson (I'd like to have seen more of him and E.B.), Julianne Moore (a nice addition), and Jennifer Lawrence--who's really the only reason why this movie is worth seeing because she's basically great in everything.
