Very disappointing. Stay away from this one.

User review rating: 2 January 25, 2024

Nothing. Glad I waited to DL it for free. I'd be very mad if I paid a penny to watch it and demand a refund.

Everything about this movie was GREAT!

User review rating: 1 December 30, 2023

I liked NOTHING about this movie!

User review rating: 1 December 25, 2023

You will too after enduring this nonsensical mess. No action Bad Cinematography... "I'm readyfor my close up"... like 30 and it makes the lead actress look bad... i feel sorry for that girl. Then the music.... the! Bad, and at the wrong time. I'm a professional musician and support music in all its variety and the glorious effect it can have on a film... not this one. Boo. At the 2 hr mark I thought we were out... nope. I suffered, you need not. Don't matter what your 15 year old daughter or son or... whatever they may identify as ... no!

At some point this movie reminded me the USSR where I was born. The way the described world is working isn't exaggerated. The reality was worse. I enjoyed watching this movie and I can recommend it for one time

Hated this movie -producer / writer must have been on drugs

I thought it was the best movie in the franchise. Rachel Zegler is top tier. The cast is fabulous.

I really liked this concept and liked how much better this really explained the regular hunger games!

It was Hunger Games alright. Killing, killing, and more killing. Two and a half hours of it and the girl lives. This girl didn't have the nobility or exciting fighting skills of the one in previous movies. Her singing folk oldies didn't really cut it. This movie is a colossal waste of Viola Davis. Snow was pretty decent although I was not happy to see him shift to the dark side but we already knew that's what the prequel was about. Overall the movie was not boring. I just felt like I've been there before.

Yeah. It's pretty f-ing stupid!!

User review rating: 3 November 27, 2023

It was ok. Not on par with previous Hunger Games movies but still worth a watch.

Spoiler Alert, the ending is confusing and it helps to have read the book. 10 years ago we were treated to J Law and the first HG's. But did you ever wonder, "How the heck did this bizarre idea ever come about"? Well in this movie you will discover that the initial HG's was crude, it was not well thought out, it was managed by narcissistic psychopaths (OK well one major psychopath), it's promotion was really rank (they used the weatherman) and, without a whole lot of oddly assorted pieces of the puzzle all falling into place; there would not have been a HG's. This story follows and defines the introduction and evolution of the eventual "President Snow" that we all know and hate from the J. Law movies. Tom Blyth is sensational as a young Corialanus Snow, but Rachel Zegler really steals the show. It's very hard not to fall in love with her flirty, sassy, spunky character. Far more than one of the actors from this movie evolve into characters that travel through time to appear in the J Law series (sorry that's my definition of the original movies from 10 years ago). If you are not a HG's fan (which I suspect is the reason for the bad reviews posted here) then don't bother with this movie. But if you are, you will really like this movie. PAY ATTENTION because this movie is fast, it's deep, almost every little nuance is important and do yourself a favor, go to the bathroom first :).

My wife and I really did enjoy the movie. It was certainly worth the admission, but we did get in for the Seniors rate. Not sure that it needed to be that long, the first 2 hours was excellent and kept you guessing what would happen next. However, the later part strayed from the main theme and didn't really add much to the movie. Definitely worth a watch or rent when it becomes available. Just remember to pee before you start watching, as it's a long movie!

horrible movie -even my grandson (13) hated it

User review rating: 5 November 21, 2023

Better than the book. It was so good

User review rating: 3 November 19, 2023

Don't like the brutality (not adults), but overall, thought was good

User review rating: 5 November 19, 2023

I read the book and actually like the movie better.

Trailer looks hideous, and I'm guessing it's another woke joke.

It's Guys and Dolls for a new generation.

Movie of the year. Star cast, all so talented. A prequel which is not so different from the originals to be completely alien, but which is unique and powerful enough to still stand strong on its own. It’s a very different story and perspective to the others but done equally as masterfully. Whether you’ve seen the first 4 movies or not, you will love this.

What can be said about a HUNGER GAMES movie even Jennifer Lawrence won't appear in...?
