First Reviews Of The Hunger Games Are Incredibly Positive – So Lets Celebrate With Another TV Spot

The reviews embargo was up on The Hunger Games yesterday. You don’t have a review from us because… well, because Bleeding Cool have not been allowed to see it yet. It’s not considered that the literally millions of sci-fi and genre fans who read this site every month are a suitable target audience for this sci-fi film.

Very short sighted on somebody’s part, I think. Especially seeing I sense some cynicism about the film in the Bleeding Cool readership, and if it so happens that the film is as good as I’m hearing, I’d love to see that addressed.

So, for now, I think it’s worth saying that yhe reviews so far average out at rather positive indeed. Here are some bits and pieces:

Despite its well-worn ideas and themes, Gary Ross’s provocative, pulse-surgingly tense adaptation couldn’t feel fresher, or timelierThe Telegraph.

The best kick-ass heroine to grace the big screen since Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley smacked around that Alien, three decades agoThe Daily Mail

Hunger Games has such a strong narrative structure, built-in forward movement and compelling central character that it can’t go far wrongThe Hollywood Reporter

What’s remarkable is the lack of cheese. Tacky effects, corny dialogue and creaky performances are all shown the door. We repeat: not the new TwilightTotal Film

The Hunger Games is a triumph for all involved, proof that Lionsgate can play the blockbuster game, proof that Gary Ross can find the human heart of even the biggest film, and proof that Jennifer Lawrence is more than just Sundance hypeHitFix

This is a grounded, thoughtful and sometimes quite emotional film, with its dark scenario given due weight. Ross doesn’t give the film a glossy, romanticized “Hollywood” feel, but rather plays everything very realistically and stark, as Katniss must endure these outrageous and horrible scenariosIGN

I hope they’re right.

Here’s a recently released TV spot for the film. We’re just six days away from release now.
