  • Movie review: ‘Hunger Games’ more setup than payoff | The Salt Lake Tribune
    There’s a battle raging at the heart of “The Hunger Games,” and I’m not talking about the barely safe-for-PG-13 bloodbath that’s the focus of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel. No, the battle that informs this adaptation is between the filmmakers’ intent to create a moneymaking franchise to rival the “Twilight” films and the efforts of star Jennifer Lawrence — as teen fighter Katniss Everdeen — to create a compelling movie that’s more than just a platform for future sequels. In this effort, alas, the odds are not in Lawrence’s favor. Director Gary Ross, sharing writing credit with Collins and Billy Ray (“State of Play”), takes a good hour establishing Collins’ bleak setting: the totalitarian North American nation of Panem, where people in the outlying districts live in poverty while residents in The Capitol luxuriate in wealth and really awful hairstyles.
